We are pleased to announce that we now offer podiatry treatments at our health and beauty clinic in Huntingdon. Podiatry (also known as chiropody) is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and other disorders of the feet. Podiatrists work to improve the mobility, independence and the quality of life for their patients by providing preventative care, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of problems affecting the feet, ankles and lower limbs.
Podiatrists are highly skilled healthcare professionals registered with the Health and Care Professions Council who have been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
Melior Clinics’ resident Podiatrist is Angela Foster HCPC who visits the well-being clinic at 10 St Peters Road, Huntingdon PE29 7AA on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Angela has over 23 years experience in private practice working in clinic in the Huntingdon, St Neots and St Ives area.
She can now offer acupuncture for lower limb disorders, especially helpful for ankle, heel, plantar fascia conditions, morton’s neuroma and capsulitis. This with mobilisation and manipulation of the lower leg and foot can relieve many conditions.
Angela has teamed up with Langer to provide off-the-shelf, semi and fully bespoke orthotics.
Although chiropody can be accessed without a doctor’s referral, Angela will liaise with the patient’s doctor for continuing care, where appropriate.
In her clinics, she has much experience working with children, people with disabilities and special needs. She has also provided chiropody/podiatry to the RAF at RAF Wyton and Brampton medical centres for service personnel.
Angela has held the posts of Chair/Education Officer of the East Anglia Branch of the Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists. She has also helped facilitate training courses for colleagues and has been involved with student mentoring.
