What is a Podiatrist?


A Podiatrist is a trained and highly qualified health professional who specialises in diagnosing and treating problems or conditions of the lower limb and foot.

There is no difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist, both do the same job and the titles are often used inter-changeably. Both are protected titles regulated by the health professions council (HPC). This is similar to your GP being registered with the GMC. Always ask your podiatrist if they are HPC registered.

     
Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the study, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. The term podiatry came into use first in the early 20th century where it now denotes a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM), a specialist who is qualified by their education and training to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg.[citation needed] Within the field of podiatry, practitioners can focus on many different specialty areas, including surgery, sports medicine, biomechanics, geriatrics, pediatrics, orthopedics, or primary care.

Podiatry is practiced as a specialty in many countries including Australia, Brunei, Canada, Cyprus, Ireland, Malta, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In many English-speaking countries, the older title of "chiropodist" may still be used by some clinicians but is gradually falling out of use.
