It is the treatment of the foot in health and in disease.
A healthy foot can still present with problems – calluses (hard skin), corns, thickened
or ingrown nails etc. All can be relieved by treatment, although a “cure” can only
happen if the cause is dealt with. This is because symptoms arise as a result of
the body’s response to an internal or external stimulus. It may be necessary to review
footwear styles, wear protectors over problem areas or to wear orthoses (insoles).
Medical conditions which can have an effect in the feet include arthritis in all
its forms, multiple sclerosis, Paget’s disease, circulatory disorders, neuropathies,
strokes, heart conditions and skin complaints such as eczema and psoriasis. Particular
care is needed for people with diabetes.
