Welcome to Sassy Feet Podiatry

At Sassy Feet Podiatry, in Little Chalfont, Buckinghamshire, we are dedicated to providing you with podiatry or chiropody treatments in a friendly, professional and caring manner.  We are HCPC registered and we are members of the College of Podiatry. We are located in the Chalfont Wellness clinic which provides a welcoming and relaxing space for our clients.

What does a podiatrist do?

Many people wonder what the difference is between a podiatrist and a chiropodist – the answer is nothing – but podiatrist is a more commonly known name. Be it a podiatrist or a chiropodist, our role is to offer our advice and expertise to you and your family on how to take care of your feet and the type of shoes that you need to wear.

At Sassy Feet Podiatry we offer a wide variety of treatments – from general foot care advice to minor surgical procedures and treatment of diabetes-related conditions. This ranges from ingrown toenails or fungal nail infections through to the treatment of calluses and corns, verrucae, smelly feet, cracked heels, diabetic ulcers, athlete’s foot and biomechanics. 

What happens at your consultation?

At your first consultation, your podiatrist will take a full medical history, carry out basic tests and sensitively discuss your concerns with you to make a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Any minor problems that are picked up can usually be treated on the spot, including the removal of hard skin and corns. Many foot problems can be prevented by regularly visiting us, and painful conditions can be diagnosed and treated early on thereby avoiding unnecessary pain and suffering.   Even just one visit can make all the difference to your foot health.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our Little Chalfont Wellness Clinic so that we can help make your feet feel happy once again!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my podiatrist is qualified?

Podiatry and Chiropody are protected titles in law and only those who are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) are legally entitled to use them. This offers greater protection to the public with the assurance that practitioners have met the standards set by the HCPC, such as:

* assessing patients’ feet and explaining a diagnosis before the commencement of any treatment;

* maintaining their knowledge through Continual Professional Development thereby enabling them to practice lawfully, safely and effectively.

For further information: http://www.hcpc-uk.org/

To what level are Sassy Feet Podiatry’s practitioners trained?

All practitioners at Sassy Feet Podiatry are trained to Degree level, they are HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council ) registered and are members of the country’s leading professional body, the Society of Chiropodists & Podiatrists.

What exactly are Podiatrists?

“Podiatrists are highly skilled health professionals who have been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections”. (Society of Chiropodist & Podiatrist 2009).

Are there any other websites I can visit for background information?

Yes, simply click on http://www.hcpc-uk.org and http://www.scpod.org

 

Do I need a doctor’s referral to book an appointment?

No, you do not need a doctor’s referral to book an appointment.

Will it hurt?

This is a common concern but have no fear; your treatment should be entirely pain free. Conditions, such as ingrowing toenails, may be sensitive to treat but great relief is experienced following the treatment of the painful area. In some cases, anesthetic may be used to prevent pain.

What is a bio-mechanical assessment?

If you have pain in your feet when walking or running then you will probably need a bio-mechanical assessment. The podiatrist will look at the positioning of your hips, knees, ankles and feet whilst walking. If there is a problem with the positioning of the lower limbs then it disturbs the bio-mechanics of walking or running and this is what causes pain. Using orthotics can usually help alleviate this problem.

What are orthotics?

Orthotics are a type of insole that are used inside your shoes. They are used to help rectify certain mechanical abnormalities in the foot. Pain may be felt in the feet or legs when walking, running, or maybe even all the time. We assess how you walk or run and make a note of any problems; this is called a ‘gait analysis’. We can then recommend a ready-made orthotic or one which is custom made for your foot. Back pain, knee pain and ankle pain are some of the conditions that can be treated by wearing orthotics.

How many treatments will I need?

This will depend on many things, such as what kind of problem or condition you are suffering from. There are some foot conditions that need regular care. The length of treatment required will be discussed during the initial consultation and assessment. We aim to help you avoid certain problems from recurring and are happy to advise you on this. We will discuss the type of footwear that is suitable for you to wear everyday depending on your condition.

What is involved in nail surgery?

If you have an in-grown toenail that is not responding to conservative treatment then nail surgery may be needed. This is the surgical removal of the nail under local anaesthetic. The podiatrist will assess you to check if nail surgery is suitable for you, and will discuss the procedure and what is involved with you during your initial consultation.
