When should you see a chiropodist?
If you’re suffering from any of the foot problems listed above, you should consider seeing a chiropodist, as they’ll be able to help. For example, if you’re suffering from foot pain, they’ll be able to supply orthotics. These are insoles, padding, and arch supports that are designed to work specifically for your feet – providing the support you need.
Even if you think your feet are in good shape, it’s still worth visiting a chiropodist. You may find that you’re wearing the wrong shoes for your walking style.
What can you expect from the consultation?
Your consultation will last between 30-60 minutes. To make sure you get the best treatment, we’ll take a full medical history and carry out some basic tests. Typically this will involve checking the blood circulation and feeling in your feet.
Depending on the problem you’re experiencing, you might be asked to walk around and move your lower leg joints – this is so we can check the way you walk, as this could be the root cause of the problem. You’ll be able to tell us all about the problems you’re experiencing, how long you’ve had them for, and what previous treatments you may have tried. Then, based on everything you tell us, and the tests carried out, you’ll be given a diagnosis and a treatment plan.
If you’re suffering from minor problems such as hard skin, calluses, or corns, we’ll usually treat these on the spot.
