Chiropody | Podiatry

Chiropody involves the assessment, management and treatment of diseases and disorders of the lower limb. Also known as ‘podiatry’, it is a branch of medical science practised by specialist ‘foot doctors’. These are commonly referred to as chiropodists.

A chiropodist uses a range of techniques to treat chronic conditions that affect lower limb function. Therapeutic, surgical, orthotic or palliative treatments are among the most effective methods. These can help to alleviate a range of common foot problems, such as corns, athletes foot and bunions.

On this page we will explore chiropody in more depth. We will look at how a foot doctor diagnoses and treats patients and how chiropody can benefit you. We will also identify the difference between chiropody and podiatry.
