WHY SEE A CHIROPODIST?
Many people think "why not just go and get a pedicure?" The reason you should see a chiropodist instead is because pedicures are considered a cosmetic service by non medical practitioners. Chiropodists provide a medical treatment for all nail and skin issues on your feet. This is done in a safe and sterile environment with the proper tools needed to handle the more sensitive or demanding issues. Chiropodists also provide routine treatment for patients who are considered higher risk (diabetics, impaired circulation, neuropathic (loss of feeling in feet), elderly etc.) You wouldn't let a mechanic handle your dental care.
