Why podiatry and not chiropody ?

Podiatry is the new word for chiropody, a term with which most people are more familiar.  It is the treatment of foot disorders in health and in disease. 

Until a few years ago it was possible for anyone to call themselves a chiropodist without having to undergo any formal training.  These days, however, someone can only legally call themselves a podiatrist or chiropodist (the terms are interchangeable)  if they have completed the recognised degree-level training course or if they have undertaken further training to bring their skills and knowledge base up to the required standards.  In addition, all practitioners must be registered with the Health Professions Council.  You can check if a podiatrist or chiropodist is registered by visiting www.hpc-uk.org.
