PODIATRY WARWICKSHIRE & CHIROPODY WARWICKSHIRE
Promoting a standard of clinical excellence in Podiatric Medicine (Podiatry) and Chiropody within Henley In Arden, Warwickshire. Our Clinical Podiatry & Chiropody Faculty is run by Henley In Arden based Specialist Podiatrist, Heidi Murfin. We offer a range of podiatry and chiropody services in our Warwickshire Clinic.
WHAT IS CLINICAL PODIATRY WARWICKSHIRE?
Clinical or General Podiatry is a branch of Podiatry associated with the care and treatment of the skin and nails of the feet, together with the overall health and wellbeing of the lower limbs. This includes the health of structures like blood vessels and nerves, which may be adversely affected in conditions like diabetes.
Podiatrists (formerly known as Chiropodists) work to improve the mobility, independence and the quality of life for their patients by providing assessment, diagnosis, treatment and preventative care of a wide range of problems affecting the feet, ankles and lower limbs. However, most people will simply see a podiatrist for Nail Cutting, Corn and Callous care etc.
Clinical Podiatry can be differentiated from other branches of Podiatry such as Biomechanical Podiatry, for which we have a separate facility here in Henley In Arden, Warwickshire, offering services in Gait Analysis and Custom Orthotic Prescription.
SHOULD I SEE A CHIROPODIST OR A PODIATRIST WARWICKSHIRE?
Podiatry and Chiropody are one in the same profession. There is no difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist. Podiatry / Podiatrist are the terms used for Chiropody / Chiropodist in English speaking countries other than the UK. The terms Chiropody / Chiropodist are progressively being phased out to be replaced by the terms Podiatry / Podiatrist. However, because many members of the public within the UK are more familiar with Chiropody / Chiropodists, these terms are still regularly used, and often feature quite heavily within advertising for this reason. We offer services in Podiatry and Chiropody in Warwickshire.
