Chiropody/Podiatry - What's the difference?

Actually - NONE!

Nowadays chiropody seems to be used to describe the 'routine' care of feet, such as toenail cutting, corns and calluses. 

The College of Podiatry expanded their expertise and training to include nail surgery, prescribing rights, bio -mechanics and post graduate studies in foot surgery (podiatric surgeon). 

Therefore chiropodists with these extra skill sets were using the updated title of 'Podiatrist' however they still cover all routine foot care as well.
