Do you have any footcare problems or questions?
Too much info, not enough info?- Picture by Tsahi
L&D Footcare is built by professional foot health experts offering the very best:
Medical quality information that actually works, boiled down into easy information bites for you.
Our Chiropody medical professionals have over 18 years of experience incorporating hospital, clinic and Doctor surgeries as their base of operations.
We will cover a wide range of conditions giving explanations to:
1- How you got it in the first place. Removing the initial cause will then leave you to stop re-treating the problem constantly.
2- Does it get worse, or stay the same- the conditions process. Sometimes conditions do get worse, sometimes they can stay as they are- we will explain how things get worse, and how to limit it from getting worse
3- How to treat it effectively. You may find simple treatment options and you may find options that you need to see a qualified clinician. All treatment options are discussed, but only the effective are offered- you maybe surprised to learn that most websites actually over treat, or even offer a treatment without the known facts.
4- What steps can be taken to stop it from coming back. Some treatment options if used too regularly can build up toxicity within your body, we don't want that. Also most of the common conditions can be reduced or even prevented from appearing again.
That's Dominic. He trained in the UK and practiced from 2004.He worked in the NHS system in local clinics and then in 2008 emigrated to Ontario, Canada with his wife Lucy (also a Chiropodist).
In Canada they created L&D Footcare which was a...erm...footcare clinic :) You can see it here:
Within 5 years the clinic was sold and Dominic continued with Chiropody in Petrolia, where he still works (and is very fortunate to work) in a Family Health Team- similar to the clinics where he worked in the UK. He is very active in training health professionals on identifying foot injury prevention techniques, does many online Q&A and writes books.
