FootSmart Podiatry can help you with all of your general podiatry and chiropody needs. A podiatrist is an expert in caring for your feet, with special skills focusing on the maintenance and treatment of nails and conditions of the feet and ankles. Regular treatment by a podiatrist can help prevent many common painful lesions such as ingrown toenails, corns & calluses, fungus and cracked heels. Self-treatment can often turn a minor problem into a major one and is generally not advisable.
Diabetic Foot Care

This can put you at a higher risk of foot complications including skin conditions, the development of foot ulcers and delayed wound healing. Diabetes can also negatively affect the joints of the foot and ankle, making them stiff and sore.
