Chiropodists can treat a variety of foot conditions, including corns, calluses, bunions,
ingrown toenails and plantar fasciitis, and can prescribe custom orthotics.
HealthCasa's chiropody service focuses on the assessment and management of foot and lower limb disorders. Our registered chiropodist works with patients of all ages to help improve mobility, alleviate foot pain, provide health education and improve overall quality of life.
What Is a Chiropodist?
A chiropodist is a regulated healthcare provider who specializes in diseases and disorders of the foot. They must be registered with the College of Chiropodists of Ontario.
A Chiropodist is trained to diagnose and manage conditions affecting the feet and lower limbs, including foot and ankle pain and sports injuries. They perform biomechanical exams and gait analyses to prescribe and fit patients with custom orthotics. They also treat and manage skin and nail conditions such as corns, calluses, warts, damaged toe nails, misshaped toenails and ingrown toenails. Chiropodists can administer cortisone injections and perform surgeries for ingrown toenails and soft tissue injuries. They also have the ability to prescribe certain medications, both oral and topical.
There is no significant difference between Chiropodists (pronounced: ‘ker-ro-po-dist’) and Podiatrists in Ontario. Both professions are regulated by the College of Chiropodists of Ontario and both must pass comprehensive board exams and provincial licensing exams to be licensed to practice.
The difference in title is determined by which country the Chiropody or Podiatry degree was obtained. A Podiatrist practicing in Ontario will have graduated outside Ontario (usually in the US) and will have moved to Ontario before 1993. All Podiatrists who moved to Ontario after 1993 are registered as Chiropodists in the province of Ontario. Therefore, in an effort to promote the profession of Chiropody in Ontario, there have been no new Podiatrists registered in Ontario for the past 25 years.
