What is the difference between chiropody and podiatry?
Chiropodists and podiatrists, deal with the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the lower limb and are qualified to treat people with arthritis, diabetes, nail surgery and sports injuries. They work with people of all ages but play a particularly important role in helping older people to stay mobile and, therefore, independent.
There is no difference between a chiropodist and a podiatrist. Podiatrist is the term used for chiropodists in some English speaking countries.
