A qualified chiropodist and podiatrist, who has experience in the NHS and private practice, has launched his own clinic in Bury St Edmunds.
Nick Howsam opened the Bury St Edmunds Chiropractic Clinic this week at the Northgate Street Business Park, where he is able to assess, diagnose and treat foot complaints.
By working privately, he says he is able to have longer appointments with patients to give them a ‘better service’ and explain the assessment process and diagnosis.
Mr Howsam said: “I can talk them through that so patients have a better understanding of what’s going on.
“As I’m a podiatrist and chiropodist, we’re trained to assess and actually work out what the cause of a problem is rather than just treating the actual signs and symptoms.
“We can then put a treatment in place to try and prevent that pathology or pain.”
He has been a chiropodist and podiatrist for about five years - working in the NHS in Norfolk and Yorkshire and in private practice in Norfolk and Dublin.
Mr Howsam used to live in Bury about 10 years ago and his family are also based in the town. He will be offering home vist appointments across the area for those unable to travel to the clinic. Contact the clinic on 01284 702155 or for home visits call 07717124907.
