Hema has worked in private practice since qualifying as a Podiatrist/Chiropodist from Northampton School of Podiatry and is registered with the Health Professional Council. Her key interests are in biomechanics and Verruccae treatments. She firmly believes in Continuous Professional Development as a way of keeping updated on new treatments and developments within the profession. She likes to promote various issues and new research that comes to light through lecturing at seminars. Hema is extremely passionate about podiatry and would like to see advances in homeopathic podiatry. She is working actively to increase her knowledge in this area.
As well as having a full time career she is a leader at a local Brownie pack and teaches maths to students in need of extra support.
Hema enjoys working in a multi disciplinary environment and believes this to be a healthy change in the way people perceive healthcare, as it allows for patients to get the best possible treatment. As well as mutually beneficial for the practitioners who can learn from each other. Healthy comfortable feet should be within everyone’s reach and Hema believes this target to be attainable; her enthusiasm is as contagious as is her positive attitude towards podiatry.
Hema works at our Goswell Road Clinic.
A few months ago I was waking up with a very painful foot I ignored it at first thinking it would disappear but after 6 weeks I consulted my GP who recommended I take painkillers but after two weeks of this my foot was no better. This is when I discovered the clinic. It was diagnosed as planar fasciitis and I was put on a treatment plan of orthotics/insoles, cold therapy and stretching I could feel the difference in my feet almost immediately.
I have suffered from hard skin for years I thought it was normal to get hard skin on the souls of your feet as you get older. I used to see a chiropodist to have the hard skin taken down every 4 weeks as it would become painful. However, it wasn’t until I came to the Islington & Clerkenwell Chiropractic clinics to see the chiropodist/podiatrist that I realized that it wasn’t just hard skin it was a family of verrucaes. Since the diagnoses I have had a series of treatments which has got rid of the verrucae and I now no longer get hard skin in those areas and my feet feel much better.
