What is Chiropody & Podiatry?

The Institute of Chiropodists & Podiatrists (of which Lisa is a member) is one of the longest established Chiropody organisations formed in 1955 as the ‘Institute of Chiropodists’ and later in 1997, changed, to its present title.  Its members undertake to adhere to a strict code of professional conduct.

Chiropody (originally from a Greek word and is pronounced Kyr.) & Podiatry is the care and treatment of the foot and foot disorders, but encompasses far more as the body as a whole is affected by lower limb and foot conditions and indeed vice versa i.e. back, knee & hip.
