What is Podiatry?

A podiatrist is a healthcare professional who diagnoses and treats disorders, diseases and deformities of the foot, ankle and lower limb. Podiatry was originally known as Chiropody but has since changed and podiatry is now the internationally recognised name for a foot specialist. The Health Professions Council of the United Kingdom regulates podiatrists.
