Are Chiropodists and Podiatrists the same?
Chiropody / podiatry is the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the foot, ankle and lower leg conditions, and there is no difference between a chiropodist or a podiatrist. Chiropody is the old term for treatment by a foot health professional but the term podiatry is becoming increasingly used as it is a common term, used all over the world, for treatment by a foot health professional.
