We recognise that Chiropody and the proper care for your feet and lower limbs has been around ever since the days of ancient Egypt, through the bas-relief carvings at the entrance to Ankmahor's burial place which are dated to about 2400 BC. It is commonly recognised that the name 'corn' came from the roman scientist Aulus Cornelius Celsus not to mention Hippocrates described the necessity to have corns removed, inventing a unique 'skin scraper' for this specific purpose which was the original source of the modern day scalpel.
The wonderful advantages of healthier feet and limbs brought about by proper care and attention have already been enjoyed by huge numbers of people over several thousands of years. Countless prominent figures in recent times, have seen the advantages in using the services of their own Chiropodist. Napoleon was attributed with stating "An army marches on its stomach" the reality is, an army marches on its feet and so do we, so it is important that we take care of them.
The number of foot and lower limb conditions that can be handled by chiropody is substantial, including corns, calluses, verruca, bunions, nail issues, diabetes associated problems, toe deformation, warts and walking or balance difficulties. Essentially any sort of difficulties associated with the lower limbs and feet can be looked into for treatment by a professional Chiropodist.
People look to a Chiropodist when they suffer from problems with their feet and lower limbs An a lot of these problems have their origins in our own individual habits. Using poorly fitted or inappropriate shoes can result in a whole host of problems. We can damage our feet when we overwear particular sorts of footwear or when we do not follow a suitable regime of cleanliness and care.
Whenever we are plagued with unhealthy feet, it isn't just the pain of the affected areas that causes concern. We're also psychologically worn out and stressed when we attempt to complete our regular day-to-day practices. Walking with a hammer toe, bunion or verruca can be extremely painful and the tension takes so much of your mental concentration. This loss of concentration can lead to other sorts of tense situations as you are struggling to accomplish your normal everyday duties to a reasonable degree.
