The term 'Podiatry' takes over  from Chiropody and covers all things foot and leg related. If you have issues with the skin, nails, or think you have an infection of your feet? Then this is the place for you.

Podiatry is the branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases of the human foot.

Podiatrists treat common conditions that affect the foot and ankle, they may also perform surgery and prescribe medicines or orthopaedic devices.

Within the United Kingdom the title “Podiatrist” is protected by law, meaning that it can only be used by those registered with the Health Professions Council.

The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists is the Professional Body for registered podiatrists.
