What is Chiropody?

Chiropody is the field of healthcare specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot and ankle and aspects of the lower limbs.

When the foot hits the ground, each component of the foot and ankle and lower limbs is affected by this motion. Podiatrists and chiropodists are experts in this interaction of body joints, which is known as biomechanics.

Chiropodists are registered with the College of Chiropody which regulates qualified medical foot care in Ontario. The foot specialists at The Foot Clinic work in partnership with our team of consultant physicians, orthopaedic surgeons, diabetes specialists and others to ensure each patient is thoroughly assessed, diagnosed and optimum treatment is selected.

An assessment by one of our chiropodists is undertaken in clinic and may include a gait analysis. In most cases, conservative treatment by our experts may be effective without surgery.

Many foot and ankle problems are stress injuries, caused by inappropriate footwear and poor gait when running or walking. These injuries can often be treated by Chiropody, using a combination of orthotics, appropriate footwear and activity modification.

Our specialists provide advice on appropriate footwear, core stability and stretching exercises, as well as prescribing orthotics.
