What is a Chiropodist?
A Chiropodist is a primary health care provider educated exclusively in the assessment, treatment and prevention of foot disorders. Chiropodists provide patients with total nail and skin care, perform nail and soft tissue surgeries under local anaesthetic, and prescribe and fit patients with custom orthotics and/or orthopaedic footwear.
Your Chiropodist can also prescribe topical and oral antibiotics and anti-inflammatories according to your condition.
Why Foot Care?
The key to a healthy lifestyle is being in good health from head to foot. The foot, though often overlooked, is essential to healthy living. People don’t realize the tremendous pressure that is placed on their feet by simply performing normal daily activities. Proper foot care not only ensures healthy feet, but also overall health.
Foot problems contribute to pain in the knees, hips and lower back. Our custom corrective foot orthotics and sandals help you manage your foot problems, and may help prevent future conditions from developing.
DeSimone Foot & Ankle Centre Inc. helps ensure that your feet keep your life moving step-after-step.
