CHIROPODY / PODIATRY is the field of medicine devoted to the treatment of problems related to the foot and ankle.
Such treatment often brings about improved well-being in other parts of the body, especially the relief of body aches and pain.
This is because problems and pain in the foot affect both posture and gait – the way we stand and the way we walk. And when we do not stand and walk in a proper, balanced manner, we tend to develop problems such as knee pain, back ache or even pain in the neck.
As such, chiropodists and podiatrists routinely work with other healthcare professionals who treat musculo-skeletal aches and pain, including osteopaths and chiropractors.
