Podiatry / Chiropody
Podiatrists / Chiropodists assess, diagnose and treat people with feet, ankle and lower limb problems. They aim to improve mobility, independence and quality of life for their patients and to help reduce complications associated with all risk conditions affecting the feet.
A number of Podiatrists specialise in particular areas such as;
- Sports injuries
- High risk wound healing
- and are part of multidisciplinary teams in areas such as rehabilitation and community development.
Health promotion is an important role for Podiatrists.
Clinics are held in the following locations:
- Limavady Health Centre
- Bridge Street
- Shantallow Health Centre
- Sion Mills
- Strabane Health Centre
- Great James Street
- Waterside Health Centre
Domicillary Visits (Home Visits) are also carried out throughout the Western Trust. If you think you need to see a Podiatrist speak with your GP or other Health Professional.
