Podiatry

foot pain and injury treatment  - podiatry in WalthamstowWhat is Podiatry?

Our podiatry clinic offers treatment for nail and skin complaints, foot and joint pain, as well as alleviating the symptoms of more systemic disorders such as diabetes.

Podiatry (also known as chiropody) is the field of health-care that specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower limb in general.

When the foot hits the ground, forces impact on the foot not only from the ground but also from our bodies. The foot’s main job is to absorb these forces and still provide the ability for us to walk on two legs smoothly and efficiently.

Joints, muscles, bones and most commonly, skin can suffer from the over use or sudden misuse of our feet.

Podiatrists will look at the interaction of lower limb joints both in motion and non-motion. This is known as Biomechanics (Gait Analysis).

Biomechanics is study of the movement of the bones and muscles and how they affect our walking, running and standing posture.

Orthotics/Insoles and Neuro–Taping are used to alleviate many movement and pain dysfunctions.

Podiatry also encompasses systemic disorders that affect the feet. Diabetes, arthritic and rheumatological conditions, circulatory, nervous and musculoskeletal disorders are all taken into account when necessary.

I have been receiving a chiropody treatment at Ashlins for general maintenance of my feet. It has helped me with corns and hard skin , the treatment was great and the information I received was very useful.

I had an appointment today for a chiropody treatment to help with general things and I found the treatment most beneficial. Kibri was warm and welcoming, while carrying out the treatment in a professional and competent way; I felt pampered.

I came in to see Kibri about the weakening of both feet as well as my posture, I found the treatment great and the information she gave me very useful.

Today I saw Tim Hawes for a chiropody treatment. I have Dry skin callouses and apparently a Fungal nail infection. After the treatment I felt so much better. All the dry skin has been removed from many areas and a few that I didn't even notice. He took time to treat my fungal infection. Tim is a very knowledgeable therapist. He was very gentle treating my feet, he also gave me lots of advice in regards to my health issues. He is very professional and I highly recommend him.
