Helen M Chapman M.Inst.Ch.P Podiatrist/Chiropodist - HCPC registration CH19692
I am a Member of The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists with over 19 years experience in Private Practice. Having graduated from The Oxford School of Chiropody in July 1997 I joined another established Podiatrist in Bromyard, then in 2004 moved to a ground floor clinic working alongside Physiotherapists prior to my relocation to Bromyard Osteopathy & Natural Therapy Centre allowing me once more to work within a multidisciplinary team.
I am passionate about the role of the Podiatrist in maintaining mobility and our ability to improve quality of life in conjunction with other health professionals . Foot problems rarely occur in isolation and there are many systemic conditions which directly affect foot health, particularly Diabetes Mellitus, Rheumatoid arthritis, gout, vascular disease as well as problems caused by poor biomechanical functioning of the foot.
As a private practitioner I can offer my patients continuity of care enabling reassessment of any ongoing or new issues at every appointment to achieve the best possible outcome . Whether your requirements are for one off, occasional or regular appointments my aim is to advise, treat and work in conjunction with the patient and their specific needs.
I diagnose, treat and advise on all aspects of foot care and health, some examples of which are :-
Dry and cracked heels
The ageing foot
If you are unsure whether a Podiatry appointment is appropriate, I am happy to discuss this on the telephone so that should your particular problem be out of my scope of practise e or better addressed by another Health Professional I can advise you.
