THE VALE CLINIC | YOUR FOOT HEALTH MATTERS™

Podiatrist and Chiropodist based in three locations around Reading

Welcome to The Vale Clinic

Your foot health is critical to keeping you mobile and independent.  In a lifetime, we
can walk over 3 million steps in a year.  It is recommended you visit a Podiatrist at least once a year, for a foot health check.  A number of foot conditions can go unnoticed by the untrained eye, until it becomes a problem.

If your feet hurt, this is certainly not normal, book an appointment with a Podiatrist to talk through your concerns and they will treat and help manage your problem or condition, and get you back walking comfortably.

A Podiatrist should be the first healthcare professional you see, when you have a foot, ankle, or leg problem.  Podiatrists are specialists in “all things feet.”

At the Vale Clinic, I offer a complete Podiatry service dedicated to improving your foot health, individualised treatment plans are devised, and tailored to suit your foot care needs.

What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is an aspect of medicine, that specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the foot, ankle and associated structures.

Podiatrist and Chiropodists are Allied health care professionals who go through a three year degree course, where they are trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate foot and ankle conditions, keeping their patients and community healthy and mobile.

The title Podiatrist and Chiropodist are the same, and can be used interchangeably.  However, the term Podiatrist is more recent and is gaining popularity.
