You should take special care if you have been diagnosed with diabetes, chiropody can offer an important element of care. The long-term effects of diabetes, such as loss of sensation, poor circulation and impaired vision, place patients at a higher risk for serious foot infections and potential amputations.
A chiropodist provides individual assessment to establish the circulatory and neurological status of your feet, as well as personalised advice regarding your specific foot care needs.
