Podiatry Services in Penarth and Barry

Recommended by Club Member Debbie….must tell you about Chiropodist in the Pharmacy opposite Penarth library…..he is a Sports Chiropodist and is excellent. Got my feet looking almost normal today in 45 mins. Wish I had gone before but have been pretty embarrassed by how they looked, but he was great. Thoroughly recommend- 02920 709319 for appts (he also works out of Barry Eye centre)”

 

 

 

Barry-based Osteopath

Recommended by me (Simon W)….“Rob has worked wonders with my back and shoulders, both much abused by years of cycling and slouching in front of a computer screen. He gives very clear explanations of his treatments and what, if any, follow ups are needed”
