What is a Podiatrist?

They are professional individuals who have trained and specialise in the treatment of foot conditions and associated biomechanical dysfunction.

Are all Podiatrists the same?

Look for the letters S.R.Ch. M.Ch.S. or BSc Hons. following your Podiatrist’s name. Only State Registered Chiropodists/Podiatrists may work within the N.H.S. and have undertaken and passed a 3/4 year degree level course at a recognised university. Any other qualification has probably been undertaken by correspondence or part time attendance. You naturally assume your dentist and doctor are qualified, why not your Podiatrist?!

Diabetes

Many people are aware that diabetes affects the feet and Chiropodists and Podiatrists are often asked: “How?”. Diabetes mainly affects the foot because of two factors which combine to place diabetics at risk of developing a range of foot problems, some of which are extremely severe. These factors are neuropathy and poor circulation.
