HCPC Registered Podiatrist and Chiropodist
What is Podiatry?
Podiatry (also known as chiropody) is the diagnosis and treatment by podiatrists of diseases and other disorders of the feet.
The term podiatrist is used all over the world unlike chiropodist. Podiatrists are highly skilled health professionals who have been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
All Podiatrists should be registered with the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
