Foot Health Practitioners attend to all of the common conditions that affect the foot and lower leg. This can range from routine care of the nail to the treatment of verrucae, corns, callus (hard skin), ingrown toenails, nail infections or simply treating those who enjoy keeping their feet in good condition. Foot Health Practitioners also treat functional problems of the foot in gait.
The human foot is a complex part of the body and is susceptible to wear or damage when injured or stressed beyond its capability.
The incidence of diabetes is rising and it is essential that a diabetic maintains good foot care including infection control.
