Chiropody

Chiropody (or podiatry) involves the treatment of foot related problems including ingrown toenails, athlete's foot, verrucas, corns and calluses, painful feet, cracked skin and bunions. The chiropodist/podiatrist may just need to remove any hard skin, clip toenails or check whether you are wearing the right shoes.

Chiropody (or podiatry) involves the treatment of foot related problems including ingrown toenails, athlete's foot, verrucas, corns and calluses, painful feet, cracked skin and bunions. The chiropodist/podiatrist may just need to remove any hard skin, clip toenails or check whether you are wearing the right shoes.

However, the podiatrist can also supply orthotics which are tailor-made insoles, padding and arch supports which help improve mobility and comfort.

Chiropodists may also specialise in:

  • sports injuries
  • paediatrics - treatment of foot injuries in children
  • rheumatology which deals with clinical problems involving joints and soft tissues

Each session is likely to last 30 to 60 minutes. Minor problems may be diagnosed and treated immediately. Certain conditions will take time to treat and may involve the use of creams.

Anyone practising as podiatrist or chiropodist must register with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Many chiropodists may also be members of professional organisations such as:

  • The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists
  • The Institute of Chiropodists and Podiatrists
