It is very important that we look after our feet, as they are expected to carry us great distances throughout our lives, with very little in the way of pampering, care or attention. Most adults cram their feet into tight, uncomfortable, ill-fitting fashion shoes for most of their working lives and they barely manage to give them a wash. What's more we tend to ignore 'minor' foot problems until they become 'major' problems!
A Chiropodist/Podiatrist or Foot Health Professional can help improve mobility and maintain fit, active and pain free feet. They can treat callous, corns, ingrown toenails, verrucae and warts. They can provide orthotics and corrective insoles and can also give you advice on footwear and foot care. If you have got a problem with your feet, your first step should be a visit to your local Chiropodist/Podiatrist or Foot Health Professional. We have a selection of frequently asked questions and answers that should give you a insight to why you should visit a chiropodist.
