What is Chiropody?

Chiropody (pronounced chi-rop-o-dy) is the assessment, treatment, and prevention of foot and lower limb disorders using therapeutic, surgical, orthotic or palliative means.

Chiropody is the health care profession that spcializes in the assessesment and treatment of foot conditions. Physicians as well as other health care professionals often refer their patients to a Chiropodist for consultation. A referral to a Chiropody or a Podiatry clinic from a physician is not required.

A Chiropodist attends a Chiropody School, where medicine, surgery, immunology, radiology and pathomechanics are among the subjects studied. The modern Podiatrist/Chiropodist is uniquely placed to provide comprehensive footcare.

Chiropody training involves extensive theoretical, practical and clinical aspects of normal and pathological mechanics of the lower limb. Chiropodists are trained in the casting and “dressing” of orthoses and subsequent fabrication of functional and accommodative orthotic devices.
