Our Values

At Aalba we believe our patients deserve the best.

We only employ university trained Podiatrists! Why? A degree in podiatry is the only qualification recognised by the Irish government. Podiatry students study for a minimum of 4 years, complete a 1000 supervised clinical hours within the HSE and private clinics and undertake modules in Anatomy, Physiology, Lower Limb mechanics, Orthotics fabrication and prescription, Chiropody, disease management, cross infection control and psychology of health to name a few.

A degree is the gold standard for foot care providers. We are affiliated to the Irish Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists. Only holders of a degree are legally entitled to call themselves Podiatrists and Chiropodists. Next time you need a foot health provider ensure they are the real deal.
