Chiropody
at the Park Practice

What is Chiropody?

Chiropody involves many different techniques, to treat a wide range of problems with the feet to maintain their good health.

The foot is a highly complex and intricate structure whose care and well being are usually ignored until it is unable to perform the normal functions we expect of it. Anne Mofid, the Park Practice's Health Professions Council Registered Chiropodist, is a highly trained specialist who provides a comprehensive foot health service for conditions affecting the foot and lower limb.

As well as short- and long-term pain relief, the chiropodist is able to provide or prescribe individual appliances and orthotics.

What can the chiropodist treat?

  • Callous & corns
  • Nail management
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Diabetology
  • Verrucae & warts
  • Biomechanical exams
  • Provision of orthotics
  • Sports medicine
  • Physical therapies
  • Footwear advice

Other therapeutic techniques include nail surgery with local anaesthesia, cryosurgery, topical chemotherapy and physical therapies such as ultrasound.

Anne Mofid is also trained in the recognition and treatment of medical conditions affecting the foot, e.g. ulcerative conditions, arthritic problems and diabetic complications.

How is Chiropody regulated?

A Health Professions Council registered chiropodist can dramatically improve mobility and maintain fit, active and pain free feet. You do not need to be referred by your GP.

Health Professions Council Registration is a standard set by the Profession under statute. To reach this standard, Anne Mofid completed a three year full time course at Birmingham, leading to a BSc degree in Podiatry.

Only Health Professions Council registered chiropodists may be employed within the National Health. Health Professions Council Registration is the only standard acceptable to the NHS, which is why you should not accept anything less.

Anne Mofid is a Member of The Society of Chiropodists & Podiatrists
