If you’re based in either Thornbury or Portishead and you’re looking for a chiropodist then you’re in the right place.
A chiropodist or podiatrist is someone who assesses, diagnoses and treats problems with the lower limb, from the hip down to the toes. So if you have any problems at all related to the ankles or feet, then we can certainly help. We even provide a surgical service in-house so that if your condition requires any surgical treatment, we will be happy to carry that out for you.
If you’ve been looking for chiropodists in Thornbury and south Gloucestershire and have been struggling to find one, then you’re not alone. Sometimes there is a little confusion between a chiropodist and podiatrist.
In reality there really isn’t any difference between chiropody and podiatry and the two words are interchangeable, although here in the UK, we tend to call ourselves podiatrists.
In either case, we provide an extremely high standard of treatment and come highly recommended. We’ve treated many patients for a wide range of lower limb problems and utilise a variety of treatment methods, including orthotics, ultrasound, the latest software to customise and design any insoles you may need to correct imbalances, electrotherapy and more.
We pride ourselves on our professionalism and strive to do our best to provide you the very best chiropody/podiatry the Thornbury and Portishead areas.
When you book your consultation with us, we will carry out a full analysis which takes into consideration any problems relating to the lower back as well, because this is an area that may indirectly be affected. If we diagnose any problems with this area, we can always refer you on to one of our chiropractors or physiotherapists.
We think it’s important to take time to explain the cause of your problem and we strive to do this as clearly as possible. We think this is an important step as it helps to provide our patients clarity and be part of the healing process as well.
At Optimus we treat patients of all ages from infants to the elderly and we are able to alleviate, prevent and correct these disorders whilst providing professional advice on proper foot care.
