Foot care / chiropody

Our feet carry us about, day in and day out, and so they need lots of care. Yet foot care is a sensitive topic, especially for diabetics, as even the smallest wounds are hard to heal. A chiropodist knows what to look out for and in particular keeps the medical side of foot care in mind when working.
