What Are Chiropody and Podiatry?

What Are Chiropody and Podiatry?

A Podiatrist is a healthcare professional who has been trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the feet and lower limbs. A Practising Podiatrist must study full time for a minimum of three years, after which they will obtain an approved, internationally recignised (BSc) Hons degree in Podiatry.

There is no difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist. The term Chiropodist was changed to Podiatrist in 1993 as it is the internationally recognised name for a foot a specialist. Podiatrist is more commonly used all over the world. It’s not just the name that has changed though. Podiatry is a constantly evolving profession, the extensive training given to students over the 3 or 4 years of their full time course and the continuing education after graduation enable Podiatrists to treat a vast array of foot and lower limb problems. Along with the most obvious treatments for corns and hard skin, specialities exist within the profession for almost any lower limb problem.

Podiatrists at The Centre have dealt with more than 20,000 pairs of feet over the past 25 years. Our HCPC registered podiatrists are able to diagnose and treat a wide range of problems for all ages. Our clientele ages range from 2 to 102!

What Our Customers Say

  • I have trusted Andrea to deal with my complex foot problems since 1987. Not only has she made my feet so much more comfortable but we enjoy a good catch up and laugh.

  • I can’t tell you how much I look forward to having my feet done at The Centre. My orthotics have helped my knee pain and my nails look lovely now. One essential I would never give up.

    JaneSawbridgeworth, Essex
  • I attend The Centre every couple of months. The staff are all welcoming and very friendly. I always feel like I am walking on air when my hard skin and thickened nails are reduced. Worth every penny, thank you.
