What are Chiropody and Podiatry?
Chiropody/Podiatry is the care and treatment of the feet and includes diabetic foot care, the removal of in-grown toenails, callouses and corns and treatment for foot ailments such as planter warts (verrucae), athletes foot, sweaty feet, foot odour and dry/cracked heels.
Our Thurrock and Grays chiropodist is also skilled in biomechanical assessment and the supply of custom made orthotics, which can be of benefit to sportsmen and women. Most people have some form of foot fault but may not realise it until symptoms appear. The onset of pain may not even be from your feet – pain in the knees, hips and lower back can often stem from a foot problem.
Orthotics in children help to correct and prevent further mechanical problems e.g. knee, hip and lower back pain. Our chiropodist works closely with our osteopaths to help correct these problems.
The Thurrock and Grays chiropodist/podiatrist is registered with The Health Professional Council.
