French podiatrist chiropodist

    I am a French podiatrist chiropodist in Paris.

    I am specialise in sportpeople since 2001 (french tennis team, several famous sport people in the worldchampionship athletisme, rugby and triathlon..)

    our formation is similar I think:
    I treat corns, calluses, ingrown toenails, bunions, heel spurs, and arch problems; ankle and foot injuries, deformities and infections; and foot complaints associated with diseases such as diabetes. To treat these problems, I prescribe drugs, order physical therapy, set fractures, and perform surgery.
    for sport people the most important of my job is to make orthotics custom insoles.
    I also fit corrective inserts called orthotics, design plaster casts and strappings to correct deformities, and design custom-made shoes. I may use a force plate to help design the orthotics. my patients walk across a plate connected to a computer that "reads" the patients' feet. From the computer readout, after a video analyse of the biomechanical movement I drawn the correct design.
    the majority of my orthotics insoles are thermomodulable.
    We are looking for insert carbon and kevlar elements. most of our primary material is polyurethane like XE 1000, XE 700...

    I want to know how is our job in england, perhaps to chat with u and exchange experience.

    sorry for my english but it is my last wish... lol to improve my level in english language!

    thank u for your answer...

    Bonjour Arnaud,

    Well that is the limit of my French I'm afraid :eek:

    :welcome: to Podiatry Arena.

    We have a number of French colleagues as Arena members so you are in good company. :D

    Podiatry in England is very varied. Some (like yourself) have many areas of special interest. There are also others who have undergone additional training to specialise in Podiatric surgery.

    Personally, I am in private practice & my clinics are varied but the majority of my case load is routine Podiatry, nail surgery & I am trying to improve my knowledge in biomechanics so Podiatry Arena is a really valuable resource.

    thank u for your answer Mandy,

    you say hat you are trying to improve your knoledge in biomechanics to make new orthotics insoles?

    if someone come to see you with a pain in his leg when he make an effort, you can prescribe x-ray? if you can correct a static trouble with insoles (for walking every day or running)
    you patient has to see an another doctor? can you make it directly? how much it is for the treatment?

    and what kind of material do u use to make it..?

    sorry for the mistakes, I have not my dictionnary tonight lol

    best regards.
