A podiatrist is more commonly known as a Chiropodist meaning the same. They are highly skilled professionals trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the foot and lower limbs. They prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
General treatments include skin, such as corn and callous removal, nail care, soft tissue and connective tissue problems and advice on footwear.
So if you are prone to problems relating to the foot such as corns, callous, dry cracked heals, ingrown toenails, athletes foot, verruca, bunions, chilblains, to name but a few. Or if you simply cannot manage to cut your own toenails.
