What is Podiatry?

Kinetic Podiatry - What is Podiatry?

Podiatry (previously known as chiropody) is a specialist medical science that deals specifically with the health of your feet and lower limbs. Healthy feet improve quality of life and Podiatry is key to your health and wellbeing. 

Podiatry covers treatment for common foot problems such as blisters and verrucas through to the detection, diagnosis and corrective treatment of more complex issues arising from injury or disease. Podiatric medicine can also be used to prevent the onset of serious conditions by correcting imbalances and irregularities.

It is a common misconception that some conditions and injuries to the feet or lower limbs are simply untreatable. In addition, many people do not associate their knee, hip, back or neck pain with the health of their feet.

The fact is that the vast majority of foot and lower-limb problems that we see at Kinetic Podiatry Clinic are not only accurately identified, treated and corrected, but also invariably lead to significant improvements in the knees, hips, back and neck, all areas of the body which are inextricably linked to the feet.

Therefore, when we correct your excessively pronated (flat) or high arched feet, then your lower-limbs, other problems in your body will be solved too!
