FAQs for One Step Ahead Podiatry, Whitefield
What does a podiatry clinic do?
Podiatrists are specialists in all conditions of the lower limb. Within our podiatry clinic your problem will be assessed, treated and reviewed as needed until your condition improves. This may be done with a hands-on assessment, physical treatment and/or the use of state-of-the-art machinery such as Swift Microwave verruca treatment or therapeutic laser.
What problems can a Podiatrist help fix?
The main problems we see in our clinic are verrucae, ingrowing toenails, fungal nails, fungal skin infections, corns, callus, heel pain and forefoot pain.
Is it worth seeing a Podiatrist?
Yes, a podiatrist can help to prevent conditions developing or worsen and keep your feet healthy. A podiatrist should be the first health professional you see if you have any toenail or foot skin problems or indeed any foot pain.
How long does a Podiatrist train for?
It takes a minimum of 3 years to become a Podiatrist via a degree course which involves written work, exams and lots of hands-on clinical placements. Once qualified, extra accredited courses can be completed, such as further training for the administration of steroid injections.
How do I tell if my Podiatrist is qualified?
All qualified Podiatrists have to be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). The role of the HCPC is to protect the public and by law we as Podiatrists (or Chiropodists) have to be registered with them to be able work within the UK.
