A Podiatrist (also known as a Chiropodist) is a health professional who deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs.
David delivers friendly, professional Podiatry/Chiropody treatment to people at the Aston clinic or in the comfort of their own home or workplace, leaving them feeling like they are ''walking on air''.
Podiatrists diagnose and treat abnormalities and diseases of the lower limb giving professional advice on the prevention of foot problems and on the proper care of the feet.
There is more to Podiatry than corns and calluses. Problems with the feet can cause poor posture, leading to knee, hip and back problems. People of all ages and from all walks of life consult Podiatrists. David has seen people from the age of 18 months to a 106 year old.
There are 26 bones in your feet, when they are out of alignment, so is the rest of your body. Your feet are one of the most important parts of your body in affecting your general well being. Foot ailments can be the first sign of more serious medical problems. Your feet mirror your general health, so conditions like arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show their initial symptoms in your feet.
A Podiatrist can help ensure that your feet will serve you for life.
Did you know that the ancient Romans were the first to make distinct left and right shoes. Before then shoes could be worn on either foot!
