Podiatry

Podiatry Services at Active Solutions

Podiatry (also known as chiropody) is the diagnosis and treatment by podiatrists of diseases and other disorders of the feet and lower limbs. Podiatrists are, in effect, lower limb specialists who are highly skilled health professionals trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They also endeavour to prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.

When do I need to see a podiatrist?

If your feet or legs hurt, something is wrong. In this case we recommend that you visit a podiatrist, who will advise you on the best course of treatment.
