ChiropodyChiropody service in Folkestone
What does it do?
At Age UK Folkestone we have a registered, professional Chiropodist who attends the Day Centre who can deal with your foot treatment needs.
The practice of Chiropody is the assessment of the foot and the treatment and prevention of diseases or disorders by therapeutic, surgical, orthotic and palliative means. It can help with several foot disorders, and visiting our Chiropodist could help with issues such as:
- Painful feet
- Thickened or discoloured toenails
- Cracks or cuts in the skin
- Growths such as warts, calluses and corns
- Scaling or peeling of the soles
- Bad foot odour
- In-grown toenails
In addition our Chiropodist has bio-mechanical training, allowing her to assess and potentially diagnose flat feet, intense heel pain, bunions, discomfort in the knee or other foot related concerns.
