What is the difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist?
There is no difference between a chiropodist and a podiatrist.
Chiropodist was changed to podiatrist in 1993 as it is the international recognised name for a foot specialist.
Podiatrist is more commonly used all over the world.
Podiatrist is more relevant as the term podiatry refers just to feet while chiropody refers to both feet and hands.
The podiatrist can diagnose and treat a vast array of conditions from corns, callus, ingrowing toenails, bunions, verrucas, foot deformaties, heel pain, foot strains, flat feet to sports injuries, diabetic foot care and surgery
