Podiatrist or Chiropodist ?

A frequently asked question is what is the difference between a podiatrist and a chiropodist. The simple answer is that podiatry is a more up to date version of chiropody. A podiatrist can do everything a chiropodist can, and more. For example, a podiatrist is able to perform nail surgery, carry out biomechanical assessments (check how your feet perform) and supply you with certain prescription only medicines.

Be sure to check that your podiatrist is registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC). The HCPC will also confirm that your practitioner is qualified to perform local anaesthesia (essential if carrying out nail surgery) and that they are able to supply prescription only medicine.

Your podiatrist has extensive medical knowledge, particularly regarding conditions such as diabetes, stroke and rheumatoid arthritis, all of which may have an effect on your feet. They will be able to give you invaluable advice regarding your health and that of your feet.

In order to maintain their registration with the HCPC, all podiatrists must be able to demonstrate that they are continually learning in order to keep their skills and knowledge up to date with current standards.
