Registered Chiropodists/Podiatrists are trained in all aspects of care for the feet and lower limbs, including the most common foot problems.
Some problems are inherited, and some develop from illnesses in middle age, or from the pressure of ill-fitting shoes.
Conditions treated include hard skin, corns, nail problems, foot pain.
Podiatry (also known as Chiropody) is the diagnosis and treatment by Podiatrists (Chiropodists) of diseases and other disorders of the feet.

the feet and lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
