What is the difference between a Podiatrist and Chiropodist?
This is a common question. There is essentially no difference, Podiatry is the new name that has been given to the Chiropody profession since 1993.
Podiatrists are healthcare professionals who have been trained to diagnose and treat abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They can also treat and alleviate day-to-day foot problems.
Chiropodist/Podiatrist is a protected professional title recognised in law and may only be used by an individual registered with the HCPC if that practice is within the United Kingdom.
