What happens during the assessment?

    

At your first consultation, the podiatrist will take a full medical history and carry out an examination & some tests related to your indicated condition.

They may also look at the way you walk

and move your lower leg joints.

They'll discuss your concerns with you and then make a diagnosis and suggest a treatment plan.

Any minor problems that are picked up can usually be treated on the spot.

Expert mechanical evaluation enables accurate orthotic recommendations

Podiatry at HTC

Podiatry 3.png

Podiatry is a specialised field dealing with the study & care of 

the foot, including its anatomy, function, pathology, medical 

and surgical treatment, and associated health related factors. 

Podiatrists are registered healthcare professionals who've been trained at degree level to diagnose and treat abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.

Here at HTC You may want to see a podiatrist for advice and treatment if you have:

 Painful feet/ankles

Thickened or discoloured toenails

Cracks or cuts in the skin

Growths such as warts and verrucas

Recovering from surgery to the foot & ankle

Diagnosed conditions such as Plantar fasciitis or Achilles problems.

Podiatrists can also design & supply orthotics, which are tailor-made insoles, padding and arch supports to relieve painful conditions or aid the correction of mechanical problems of the foot.

Even if your feet are generally in good condition, you might consider having a single session of podiatry.

For example, you may want to have any hard skin on your feet removed or have your toenails clipped.

A podiatrist can also advise you about footwear (take your shoes with you), and they can check that you’re looking after your feet properly.

Podiatry has a very wide spectrum of services ranging from severe foot disorders in children through to preventing, diagnosing and treating injuries related to sports and exercise at all levels.

What's the difference between a

Podiatrist & Chiropodist?

  

There is no difference.. Podiatrist is a more modern title.

The development of healthy feet is integral to the healthy condition of the whole leg & spine.

Podiatry ranges across a number of care aspects relating to the foot & lower limb.

At HTC Podiatrists & Physiotherapists work in tandem to provide the optimal therapy outcomes for our patients.
