Podiatrist or Chiropodist?
Podiatrists and chiropodists are specialists in foot health. Sometimes there is confusion between the two titles. Chiropody is the traditional term given to treatments of foot ailments. Podiatry, a more recent title, encompasses the complete detailed study, diagnosis and treatments of the foot and ankle. This includes chiropody as one form of treatment option. Podiatry can involve gait analysis, custom orthoses (insoles), nail surgery, shockwave therapy, prescription only medicines, administration of local anaesthetics / steroid / PRP etc.
In short, all Podiatrists can carry out chiropody but, not all Chiropodists are Podiatrists. You can read more about this in the blog section under “Why should you consult a professional podiatrist for your foot and ankle problems?”.
