Worthing Foot Clinic Footcare / Chiropodist & Reflexology
Our team consists of fully qualified chiropodists and foot health practitioners who are ready to assist you with your ongoing foot issues and help you maintain healthy feet. At BOP, we have two specialists who offer foot care treatments in our foot clinic:
Sue Potten: Our Chiropodist
James Barber: Our Foot Health Practitioner
Both therapists perform similar assessments and treatments. However, it’s important to note that treatments carried out by our chiropodist may be covered by private health insurance due to differences in qualifications and associated regulations.
As with any form of treatment, there are potential risks involved in chiropody and foot care, including pain, swelling, bleeding, and infection. Your therapists will discuss these risks and benefits with you, tailoring the information to your specific case. Please don’t hesitate to ask our healthcare practitioners any questions or express concerns you may have.
A chiropody or foot health appointment begins with a discussion about your foot problems and general health. It includes a thorough assessment of your feet, addressing common issues such as:
- Nail trimming
- Fungal infections
- Thickened nails
- Diseased nails
- Hard skin and corn removal
- Ingrown toenails
- Athlete’s foot
- Diabetic foot care
You might also require advice with conditions like bunions, plantar fasciitis, heel pain, and toe pain. Custom-made devices may be made, if appropriate, to alleviate pressure on specific areas of your feet.

Understanding Chiropody and Podiatry: Interchangeable Terms
In the realm of foot care, you may come across two terms: “chiropody” and “podiatry.” While they are often used interchangeably, they do have subtle distinctions.
Chiropody: Historically, chiropodists focused primarily on treating common foot problems, nail care, and general foot health. Today, the scope of chiropody encompasses a wider range of services, including biomechanics and orthotic prescription.
Podiatry: The term “podiatry” typically represents a broader field that includes advanced foot care, surgical interventions and more detailed biomechanics.
In the United Kingdom, both chiropodists and podiatrists undergo rigorous training and adhere to high standards of professional practice, ensuring that patients receive the best possible care for their foot health.
