Nav Walia owns and runs MyPod foot Clinic Ltd, a Chiropody / Podiatry practice situated in Kidderminster town centre. Nav is HPC registered and also a member of the Society of Chiropodists & Podiatrists. Following a rewarding career with Dudley PCT, where Nav specialised in diabetic foot care, nail surgery and patient education, he decided to move on from the NHS to open his own private practice.
Mypod offers a range of services, from routine hard skin & nail treatments, verrucas, in-growing toe nails to insoles / orthotics. With a broad base of experience behind him, Nav aims to inform and advise people through his blog, about common foot problems and hopes to raise awareness about one of the most neglected parts of our bodies.
