Podiatry Medway - Understanding Podiatry

Podiatry is a fast evolving healthcare profession concerned with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of lower limb and foot injuries, diseases and abnormalities. The foot is a highly complex structure, comprising 26 bones and together the feet make up over a quarter of the bones in the adult body! So like any complex mechanism feet are prone to mechanical problems and benefit from regular maintenance.

“As you know I was training for the London Marathon when I was struck down over Christmas with the most excruciating pain in the arch of my right foot. I really thought my chances were over. However thanks to your wonderful treatment I was literally back up and running again within a couple of weeks. I had never heard of plantar fasciitis before but now I can even pronounce it! Thanks to you I was able to complete the race in 3 hours 47 minutes.”
Jenny Campbell, Chatham
“I would just like to thank you for the excellent work you have carried out to ‘repair me’. Since you supplied my orthotic insoles, the pain in my right knee has disappeared completely. This after three years of non-stop suffering. I really can’t thank you enough and can whole heartedly recommend your services to everyone. Best regards.”
Richard Cunningham, Maidstone

Podiatry Medway - Chiropody or Podiatry?

There is often confusion between what is a ‘podiatrist’ and a ‘chiropodist’ but they are the same. The word ‘chiropody’, in use since the 1700’s with regards to footcare specialists, is actually a misnomer. It derives from the Greek ‘chiro’ meaning ‘hand’ and ‘pous’ meaning foot (plural ‘podes’). In the US, ‘chiropody’ was used until 1958 when it was officially changed to ‘podiatry.’ Now ‘podiatrist’ is becoming universally adopted.
