General Foot Care

Routine foot care is the main service provided by foot specialist (Chiropodists/Podiatrists). It is the bread and butter of most foot clinics.

Many people have difficulty managing their own feet due to inability of reaching their feet, the lack of proper instruments to care for their feet or extremely difficult to cut toenails and excessive hard skin build up.

Routine foot care is a general service to help maintain people’s toenails, hard skin build and overall foot health. It is usually performed on a routine basis depending how fast that foot issue returns. For example, most patients come back every 6-8 weeks for routine nail trimming while some patients who get hard skin build up only need to come back every 3-6 months.

If you are having difficulty maintaining your feet, seeing a foot specialist for routine foot care is a vital step in order to maintain happy, healthy feet!
