Podiatry

Podiatry is a University degree and a registered profession in the UK devoted to the study and treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, knee, leg and hip (the lower extremity). They specialise in the study of foot pathology from a structural and functional standpoint.  A Podiatrist treats the medical problems affecting the foot.

In the UK any practitioner working under the reserved title Podiatrist (or Chiropodist) must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). A Podiatrist will assess a foot condition, advise of the most appropriate course of action and build a treatment plan around the person. These conditions can include verrucae, in-growing toenails, plantar fasciitis, biomechanical issues, fungal nail and skin infections. A podiatrist can also help biomechanical issues and provide Gait analysis.

 

If you’re experiencing a musculoskeletal condition within the lower limb you could benefit from a biomechanical assessment. Most biomechanical conditions seen within podiatry can be significantly helped with orthotics/insoles. Orthotics are usually custom made or prefabricated inserts placed within the shoe to restore our natural balance and foot function by offloading overworked structures of the foot and lower limb, thereby improving function and efficiency.

 

At Physical Balance we also have unique solutions for verruca treatment.
