What is a Chiropodist?
A Chiropodist is a foot specialist trained in either the United Kingdom or Canada to treat any and all ailments of the feet for all age groups.
Some of the most common ailments that Chiropodists treat include:
- Ingrown nails
- Fungal or thickened nails
- Athletes foot
- Corns and callouses
- Plantar fasciitis/heel pain
Why would you see a Chiropodist?
The human foot contains 27 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles. The feet, therefore, comprise approximately 1/4 of all the bones in the human body. It is no wonder, then, that conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, neurological and circulatory disorders tend to manifest initially in the feet. A Chiropodist is medically trained to assess and treat ailments resulting from the abovementioned disorders.
Painful Foot Conditions
Over time the human foot undertakes extreme stresses and forces due to our gait, level of activity, weight gain and shoe wear. Any one of these factors may create biomechanical instability of the feet resulting in painful toes, heels, ankles, knees, hips or even lower back. Correct assessment and treatment of these conditions are a very important part of the Ladas Foot Clinic.
