The terms podiatrist and chiropodist can sometimes cause a little confusion, but in the UK there is no difference.
Podiatry is simply a more modern name for chiropody; both involve the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of foot and related lower-limb conditions.
At Gosforth Physio & Wellness we offer a range of podiatry and chiropody services, suitable for people of all ages, lifestyles and occupations...
Podiatrists/Chiropodists are healthcare professionals who specialise in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of feet and lower limb disorders.
At Gosforth Physio & Wellness we are qualified in treating people with arthritis, diabetes and sports injuries.
We can help individuals of ALL ages, but play a particularly important role in helping the elderly to stay mobile and, therefore, independent.
Members of the The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists in the UK, we provide experienced and expert analysis of poor foot function through biomechanical assessment and gait analysis, where we can introduce foot orthoses to help correct any musculoskeletal dysfunctions you may have.
