Podiatry is the management of disease and disorders of the lower limbs and the key role of the podiatrist is maintaining a patient’s mobility and independence. Podiatrists treat a complex range of conditions using a variety of techniques to manage painful foot conditions and often have the ability to provide immediate pain relief.
The terms chiropodist and podiatrist are interchangeable. Many HPC/State registered chiropodists now use the title podiatrist, which is the internationally recognised name for foot specialists.
