Chiropody / Podiatry Service

Chiropody / Podiatry Service at Alsager Osteopathic surgery.

Everyone understands the term Chiropodist, so what is a Podiatrist?

Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the study and treatment of disorders of the leg and foot . ‘Podiatrist’ is a reserved title in the UK, meaning that it can only be used by those registered with the Health Professions Council. Within the United Kingdom, the titles “podiatrist” and “chiropodist” are to some extent interchangeable. Although the UK government-appointed regulator acknowledges both titles and makes no distinction between them, they are used differently within the occupation. Inside the profession, chiropody is used to suggest the routine processes of foot care, whilst podiatry is indicative of the higher skills and academic levels.
