Chiropody is the professional care and treatment of peoples feet. A chiropodist is a professional trained to treat and prevent foot disorders. Chiropodists provide patients with nail and skin care, conduct nail surgeries using local anesthetics, and prescribe custom insoles and ankle-foot orthoses. Chiropody is often referred to by the more modern term podiatry, there is no difference between a podiatrist and a chiropodist. A degree in Podiatry and HCPC (state) registration is required to practice as either a podiatrist or chiropodist.
