Bal Heer Podiatry/Chiropody in Benfleet & Thurrock

16 Apr

Is it Chiropody? Or is it Podiatry? In fact there is no difference. The term chiropodist is used traditionally in the UK, whereas the term podiatrist is used internationally. More and more though in the UK you will hear the term podiatrist used. Whatever the title  a chiropodist/podiatrist is a health professional who assesses, treats and manages conditions effecting the feet and lower limbs.

Our chiropodist/podiatrist Bal Heer regularly treats common foot conditions including athlete’s foot, bunions, corns, callouses, verrucae,  cracked heels, sweaty feet, ingrown toenails and diabetic footcare. But also, being  skilled in biomechanical assessment and the supply of custom made orthotics, he often treat athletes in conjunction with our osteopaths. Orthotics in children help to correct and prevent further mechanical problems eg knee, hip and lower back pain and Bal has many youngsters referred to his clinic.
