PROBLEM FEET, YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE

CHIROPODIST / PODIATRIST

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

Nothing really. The term ‘Chiropody’ has traditionally been used in the United Kingdom, but in recent years ‘Podiatry’ is more commonly used within the medical professions. ‘Podiatry / Podology’ is the internationally recognised term for the speciality of foot care.

Podiatrists under take a 3-year professional training, resulting in Registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC Reg), and membership of The Royal Society College of Podiatry (RCPod)

RACHEL CIANTAR

HCPC & RCPOD REGISTERED PRACTITIONER.

I have worked in private practice for the last 25+ years. The practice initially focused on serving patient needs in their own homes, but 11 years ago I opened the doors to a new purposely designed clinic.

My focus is helping you achieve a better foot health. Whatever your age, it is important to have healthy pain free feet. Mostly, we forget about feet until they hurt. Being comfortable can make the difference between feeling free and mobile, or being restricted and inactive. Regular foot care treatments can have a huge effect on your mobility and your social life, regardless of age.
