What is the difference between a chiropodist and a podiatrist?
Nothing at all, they are exactly the same. Both are health care professionals registered by the HCPC (Health Care Professional Council) and entitled to use the protected title Chiropodist or Podiatrist. They are trained to diagnose and treat abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs and are qualified following a lengthy university training.
What is the difference between a Podiatrist and a Foot Health Practitioner?
A Podiatrist is a registered healthcare professional, but a Foot Health Practioner is not, however the latter will have undertaken some basic training in foot care but will need to refer onto a podiatrist if further or more complex treatment is required.
Struggling to care for your feet?? Routine nail treatments offered to those who can no longer care for their own feet.
