HCPC Registered Podiatrist & Chiropodist, Morecambe, nr. Lancaster, Lancs
The titles of Podiatrist and Chiropodist are interchangeable. However, in the last 20 years the Chiropody profession has expanded its scope of practice. As well as traditional chiropodial problems such as corns and ingrowing toe nails, we can also assess the following:
- walking / running problems (biomechanics) in adults and children
- prescribing foot orthoses
- carry out nail surgery under a local anaesthetic for ingrowing toe nails
- provide foot care and education for Diabetic patients, who have to look after their feet
- acupuncture for the foot and lower limb pain
- foot and ankle mobilisation and manipulation
