What is the difference between Podiatry and Chiropody?
Our profession has moved forward under the umbrella term of “Podiatry” in more recent years rather than “chiropody”. The practice of podiatry is based on comprehensive understanding of medicine, surgery and biomechanics as applied to the foot, ankle and lower limb and the ability to treat the foot and its related problems. Podiatrist is the internationally recognized name for foot specialists.
