What is the difference between a Chiropodist and a Foot Health Practitioner?
In our Practice, the skills of the clinicians in routine footcare are the same, only the title is different.
Where we do differ is in regards to biomechanical assessment, orthotics and complex presentations. Mike will refer such presentations to Sarah or Judy where necessary.
You can be assured of a high level of care, expertise and professionalism from either Sarah, Judy or Mike.
We should emphasise that these are our words and not the definitive explanation.

Hard Skin can become very thick and yellow-
The nail can become mishapen and dig into the surrounding skin.
