How can a Chiropodist help?
A Chiropodist is a primary care professional that specializes in assessment, management and prevention of diseases and disorders of the foot. Chiropodists work closely with physiotherapists, massage therapists and pedorthists for optimal patient care.
Our chiropodist can evaluate and manage foot and lower limb disorders and prescribe orthotics, foot wear or compression stockings when necessary:
- Soft tissue surgery for common foot conditions: corns, warts, ingrown toenails and calluses
- Medicinal treatment for thickened and fungal nails (Onychauxis)
- Morton’s Neuroma
- Heel & arch pain, general foot pain
- Diabetes related foot conditions
- Wound management
- Prescribing compression stockings and custom orthotics
How can a Pedorthist help?
Certified Pedorthists (C-Ped) are orthotic and orthopaedic footwear experts. They are one of the few healthcare professionals extensively trained in the assessment of lower limb anatomy and biomechanics. Our Pedorthist can dispense, modify and fabricate orthotic, customized orthopaedic footwear and knee and ankle braces.
