What is a Chiropodist

Someone suffering from a foot problem will likely want to see a Chiropodist.  The word chiropodist literally means “medicine of the hand and foot,” although today’s chiropodist does not treat difficulties of the hand.

A Chiropodist is a regulated primary health practitioner who is trained in the assessment, prevention and treatment of foot and ankle related disorders.  An essential member of the health care team, the Chiropodist has many skills and techniques that help patients eliminate foot pain, gain mobility, and maintain healthy feet.
