What is the difference between Chiropody and a Podiatry?
Podiatry is the modern term for Chiropody; it is the internationally-recognised name for a foot specialist. Podiatry is our entry level service with long-lasting results, providing comprehensive advice and treatment in all areas of foot health; Podiatrists are specialists in the way people walk and are able to give advice and treatment on all aspects of foot pathology.
Our Podiatrists are trained to a degree level. Each one specialises in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of all problems relating to the foot and lower limbs. They are all Health and Care Professions Council registered and members of the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.
