A chiropodist is someone who specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of foot conditions and, since 2005, the title can only be used by someone who is registered with the Health Professions Council. This depends on successful completion of a recognised course of training and a commitment to continued professional education.
A chiropodist can help with the following;
- skin infections
- skin disorders
- problem nails
- assistance with footware
- self care advice
- sports injury management
- stress fractures

- orthotic devices/arch supports (see Orthotics> page)
- any foot problems associated with diabetes, arthritis and musculoskeletal problems
