About

Chiropodists & Podiatrists Edinburgh Midlothian - Murrayfield Podiatry Clinic

Helen McLean has provided podiatry & chiropody to patients in Murrayfield (Edinburgh) since 2000 and has recently started a home visit service in Dunblane and the surrounding area. Helen has a wealth of experience in treating a wide range of conditions affecting the foot and aspects of the lower limb. She treats adults, children and the elderly. Alongside routine podiatry & chiropody, Helen can provide specialist care and advice for people with diabetes, circulatory problems and sports injuries. Helen provides podiatry & chiropody at Murrayfield Podiatry Clinic or for those who are house-bound in the Edinburgh North & West areas, as a home visit. The term "Podiatrist" is the modern title for a chiropodist and means an expert qualified to diagnose and treat foot disorders and aspects of the lower limb. This professional title is now protected by law, and can only be used if the Podiatrist is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). A biomechanical assessment involves a complex evaluation of the function and alignment of the feet and legs whilst non-weight bearing, standing and walking. This assessment can identify the cause of pain or injury and a treatment plan can then be developed to improve the condition. An orthotic is custom made insole that supports, realigns and improves the functioning of the foot. The prescription of an orthotic is based upon the findings of the biomechanical assessment and may involve casting the foot which results in the orthotic being an exact fit. The assessment can take up to an hour and it is advisable to bring a pair of shorts and a selection of footwear. General podiatry includes most conditions affecting the feet. Painful toenails, calluses and corns can normally be easily treated and prompt professional diagnosis and treatment will not only relieve discomfort, but prevent any foot condition from worsening.
