Podiatry and Chiropody - HCPC REGISTERED - BSc (Hons) Podiatric Medicine - Trust in a professional.
Many people suffer needlessly with simple, often superficial foot complaints. I often mention to my patients, some of whom travel many miles to visit me, that a corn, hard skin or ingrowing toenail can be far more painful than any of the more "serious" complaints that I deal with each day. It is here that well skilled Professional Podiatry can assist as a routine and often regular treatment.
As a HCPC registered podiatrist and holder of a BSc (Hons) Pod Med, all of your foot complaints can be easily and comfortably treated. I hold full licence to issue antibiotics for nail and foot infections, as well as a high degree of skill in using local anaesthetic and steroid injections, to numb and make your treatment painless if required. In reality, this is rarely required!
All clinical equipment is Vacuum Autoclaved, after thorough Ultrasonic cleansing, to provide the best in patient protection. Using the latest spray drill technology, your treatment and hard skin, is reduced quickly and perfectly every time. A podiatry treatment is thorough and addresses all medical conditions of the foot and ankle, this is not a buffing or low grade treatment, as offered by beauticians and the poorly qualified practitioners that tend to operate outside of the regulated healthcare environment.
Chiropodist or Podiatrist Telford - What is the difference?
Podiatry is the modern term for professionals that also undertake routine medical based treatment of the foot and ankle. Be sure to check that your podiatrist has a full 3 year BSc Hons In Podiatric Medicine, for the Gold standard in Foot and Ankle treatment. This is a 3 year full time Science degree and requires dedication and significant training by the NHS and University to complete. Surprisingly, many of the those in the foot health market have many letters to accompany the qualifications, but are in fact very poorly qualified in comparison. Some with a distant learning course, part time by post!
When looking for a podiatrist in Telford or Shrewsbury, ensure that you are visiting a well educated and skilled healthcare professional.
Why use General Podiatry Treatments?
Podiatry is very important, in the health of the population, as without your feet you can not walk! Staying active and mobile is important. Suffering and pain is often easily remedied. Of course Rheumatoid arthritis, Diabetic foot treatments are all important. But even the healthiest sports person can be incapacitated by athletes foot that becomes infected with bacteria, the healthiest pensioner can end in hospital with infective arthritis to the knee or ankle, after a simple corn becomes infected. I have patients, that have lost a limb due to these complaints! Worryingly, they were fit and healthy in all other aspects.
