Chiropody & Podiatry

What is the difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist?


There is no difference. Chiropody is an old term. Podiatrist is a new term for this profession and is used all over the world. The profession of chipody/podiatry has developed over the years from the "misconception" that a chiropodist "just cuts toenails" into a graduate profession which encompasses all aspects  of health and disease affecting the lower limb. The podiatrist, diagnoses and treats a vast array of conditions from corns/callus, verrucas, ingrowing toenails, bunions, foot deformaties, foot strain, flat feet, heel pain to sports injuries, diabetic foot care and surgery."When your feet hurt, everything hurts!"
