Chiropodists in Northern Ireland


Recommended Posts

Hello Angela

 

Welcome to this forum!

 

I don't personally know of anyone to recommend but had a though who you could ask. What about asking a rheumatology department/rheumatology nurse as they may well may be able to recommend someone, feet being problematic in scleroderma.

 

Our Scleroderma Society U.K. has the details of a number of rheumatologists familiar with scleroderma and there may be one local to you. Have a look at the list on that website, once there click on "click here to download the current list" and you'll be taken to it.

 

I do hope this proves a fruitful search and let me know if you have any problems with accessing the list.

 

Take care.

Hi Angela, I think there will be quite a number of chiropodists who would be able to treat someone with systemic sclerosis if they perform diabetic footcare. All people who have diabetes need to see a chiropodist for footcare as injuries sto the feet may lead to infection and gangrene, similar to people with systemic sclerosis. I would suggest that a good place to ask about experienced chiropodists is your general practitioner practice. Most practices will have someone (often a practice nurse) who has responsibility fo care of diabetic patients and they should be able to point you in the direction of a good chiropodist.
