What is a Chiropodist Leeds?
A chiropodist is another name for a podiatrist. Our chiropodist is ready to assess, diagnose, and treat conditions involving feet and the lower limbs. Our professional practitioners are able to treat a wide variety of foot health issues including:
- Athlete’s foot
- Foot odour
- Toenail infections & ingrown nails
- Fungal infections
- Corns & calluses
- Dry, cracked heels
- Flat feet
- Heel pain
- Sports injuries
- Problems caused by medical conditions such as diabetes
How Can a Chiropodist Help?
Health issues in your feet can make you feel badly all over. For instance, if your feet are painful for any reason, they can cause changes in the way you walk and stand. This can lead to issues in other areas of your body, too.
Chiropodists work to correct issues you may be having with your feet. Our chiropodist can remove warts that may be unattractive and painful, they can supply orthotics or customised insoles and more. They can even help you with arch supports to ease the pain caused by flat feet. If you have heel pain, a chiropodist can help you with that, too.
A chiropodist can also remove hard calluses and corns that may be difficult for you to take care of. And a chiropodist is also able to provide advice on the types of shoes that may be best for your feet, whether you need everyday shoes or special sports shoes.
Our chiropodist Leeds puts the emphasis on prevention, and so they can offer guidance on the proper care of your feet. This can help you avoid some of the most common foot problems and keep your feet healthy.
Chiropodists can also help diagnose biomechanical issues that may be caused from the way your muscles function, or the way your joints are aligned. Poor alignment can lead to problems with your ankles, hips, and even your lower back. With a chiropodist’s help, you may be able to avoid some of these issues in the future.
How is Treatment Provided?
The treatment you receive will depend on the symptoms and the diagnosis made by the chiropodist. During your first appointment, our professional practitioner will ask about your medical history, as well as inquire about your current symptoms. After the exam, the chiropodist will then provide you with a diagnosis and treatment options. They’ll discuss the treatment with you and you’ll have the opportunity to ask any and all questions you may have about the treatment. Our chiropodist will not treat any condition without your permission.
Treat options may include:
- Cutting and shaping nails, which may include thinning nails that are thickened, ingrown, or otherwise problematic.
- General foot skin care including the removal of corns, calluses, and treatment for cracked heels.
- Identification and treatment of verrucas if these are present.
- Nail surgery is done for ingrown toenails
- Biomechanical, gait analysis and orthotics to assess and treat pain in feet, ankles, knees, hips or lower back caused by the way you move.
Can I See a Chiropodist Leeds on NHS?
Yes, possibly. This will depend on the health issues you’re experiencing. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has recommended that foot-care services for long-term conditions such as diabetes, peripheral arterial disease, and rheumatoid arthritis should be made available to NHS patients.
However, if your condition isn’t affecting your health or mobility, then you may need to pay for the chiropodist’s services on your own.
Can I See Chiropodist Privately?
Yes, if free NHS treatment isn’t available, then you can see a chiropodist, but you will be responsible for paying the bill.
How to Make Sure a Chiropodist is Qualified?
A chiropodist must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). You can use their website to see if the chiropodist is registered.
You can also check to see if the chiropodist is a member of one of these organisations:
- British Chiropody and Podiatry Association
- The College of Podiatry
- The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists
