What happens when in my treatment?
At your first consultation, your chiropodist will take a full medical history and carry out some appropriate basic tests – for example, checking your blood circulation and sensations in your feet.
Your chiropodist may also want to look at the way you walk and stand and will assess the movement in the joints of your foot and ankle. We always take time to discuss any concerns you may have, and we follow up with a clear diagnosis and a bespoke treatment plan.
Your chiropodist then tends to your feet gently and painlessly, and this results in immediate improvements in pain, discomfort and cosmetic appearance. Your treatment session then ends with a therapeutic foot massage, and we also give you appropriate advice as well as answering any other questions you might have.
Our treatment sessions usually take between 30 – 45 minutes -and please bring a list of any medications your GP has prescribed to you when you come for your first appointment.
We NEVER give up on understanding and SOLVING your problem!
