What is A Chiropodist

Someone suffering from a foot problem will likely want a Chiropodist to lend a hand or two. A chiropodist is more commonly known as a foot doctor. Chiropodist is the English language version of podiatrist, which is the American English version of “foot doctor.” Depending on which country you are in, you will want to ask for the appropriate person if you are having foot difficulties. The word chiropodist literally means “medicine of the hand and foot,” although today’s chiropodist does not treat difficulties of the hand.


A person who wants to become a chiropodist or podiatrist must go to medical school and obtain a medical degree specializing in chiropody or podiatry. Medical school is usually followed by residency, which is a hands-on form of schooling that is a sort of on-the-job training. After residency, the person can practice medicine, helping people work through their foot and ankle problems.


A chiropodist or podiatrist commonly agrees to sees patients in an office in order to diagnose their problems. Treatments commonly include medicine, physical therapy, devices such as orthotics to aid in recovery, and even surgery. A chiropodist or podiatrist has received training in surgery in most cases and is able to perform surgery as needed.


Foot Problems

  • Dry skin
  • Redness
  • Blisters
  • Itching
  • Peeling

If not treated right away, an infection may be hard to cure. If not treated properly, the infection may reoccur. To prevent infections, keep your feet - especially the area between your toes - clean and dry. Change your shoes and socks or stockings often to help keep your feet dry. Try dusting your feet daily with foot powder. If your foot condition does not get better within 2 weeks, talk to your doctor.
