The main form of treatment chiropractors deliver is called an adjustment – a non-invasive procedure consisting of a precise directed movement to help relieve pain and discomfort and restore range of motion. Sometimes chiropractors will also use other therapies like massage, heat, laser and ultrasound.
A Chiropodist has specialized training to address conditions affecting the feet and lower limbs, including foot and ankle pain and sports injuries. They perform biomechanical exams and gait analyses to prescribe and fit patients with custom foot orthotics. Chiropodists can administer cortisone injections and perform surgeries for ingrown toenails and soft tissue injuries. They also have the ability to prescribe certain medications, both oral and topical.
They also treat and manage skin and nail conditions such as corns, calluses, warts, damaged toenails, misshapen toenails and ingrown toenails.
