I am a registered chiropodist and foot specialist and have been helping patients for over 20 years.
Are you uncertain about whether you should choose a chiropodist vs. podiatrist? Chiropodists and podiatrists provide the same care. There are 600 registered chiropodists in Ontario and only 60 podiatrists. The College of Chiropodists of Ontario stopped using the name podiatrist in Ontario in 1993, over 26 years ago — but the name is still used in other provinces in Canada, also USA and UK.
Chiropodists today must complete 7 years of post-secondary education. We offer comprehensive podiatry services and do complete case management of foot problems, assessing and treating the entire foot with a variety of modalities. We strive for the best possible outcome.
Chiropodists and podiatrists are the only regulated health professions who have the ability to prescribe and provide custom orthotics to treat foot conditions as defined in the Regulated Health Profession Act of Ontario, 1991 (RHPA).
