What is Podiatry?
In the UK podiatry is simply the new name for chiropody. The name was changed to podiatry in 1993 as it’s the international recognised name for a foot specialist. Podiatrists diagnose and treat conditions of the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg. Our aim is to help you care and maintain your feet and lower limbs. We are trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs, keeping people mobile and active, relieving pain and treating infections.
What do Podiatrists Treat?
Podiatry can help with well-known conditions such as athlete’s foot, blisters, corns, calluses, verrucas, bunions, heel pain and gout. It can also help people with other conditions such as nail surgery for ingrowing toenails and help with sporting injuries. As podiatrists, we use a range of homeopathic treatments to cure conditions and help keep feet in great condition.
Our feet are what keep us moving throughout the day. On average, we take around 10,000 to 20,000 steps every day. This can be hard wearing on our feet, with 9 out of 10 people experiencing some kind of problem with their feet before they reach 30.
At AA Podiatry we can help you combat your feet problems and make walking less painful. Our podiatrists are registered with The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and are members of The Society of Chiropodist and Podiatrists.
Routine podiatry treatments require a full review of your medical history before any treatment can be considered. We will take the time to listen to your needs and work together to solve any problems you have. All of our clients receive a specialised treatment plan and advice on how to keep your feet healthy and in optimal condition.
Highly recommended if you suffer from any feet ailments.
Attended the Shettleston clinic to have ingrown toenails surgically removed. The surgery itself was efficient and completely pain free and Pauline and June (the podiatrists and founders of AA Podiatry) were great at what they do and keep your mind at ease while the surgery is taking place. Will certainly return if I have any problems with my feet in the future.
