Podiatrists (also known as Chiropodists) are experts of the feet and are able to diagnose and treat a wide range of toe, foot, ankle and lower limb problems. These may include sports related injuries, shin splints, fractures, ingrown toe nails, fungal nail infections, athletes foot, verrucas, corns, calluses, bunions, and much more.
A podiatrist is also able to analyse your gait and body mechanics, in order to improve your standing posture or efficiency whilst walking or running. For example, if your foot posture is flat or high arched this can lead to further problems up the body. The good news is this is simple and painless to correct, and can prevent injuries from occurring in the future.
