Chiropody is the long accepted term for the physical treatment of the feet. This covers conditions such as corns, calloused skin, nail cutting, skin and nail infections, verrucas, diabetic footcare, ingrowing nails, wound treatment and general footcare advice.
All age groups experience problems with their feet.
The young often present with verrucas, chilblains and ingrowing toenails. Adults with corns, callouses and sports generated problems. The elderly with arthritic joints, thickening nails and loss of fatty tissue from the feet.
Correct diagnosis with appropriate treatment are the vital components of good chiropody which Karen offers to all patients.
Karen is available for Chiropody appointments in the Baldock clinic two days a week.
