What is a Chiropodist“You say potato, I say potahto…” Ella Fitzgerald’s song about what we call things is fun and funny, but confusion about words is so true to life. Sometimes we have trouble pronouncing them, much less knowing what they mean. Take chiropodist: What is it and what can one do for you? Lest we get too confused about words and “call the whole thing off,” let’s take a closer look at this profession.

Following an undergraduate degree, a student in Ontario undergoes three years of training that qualify him or her to sit for the exam to be licensed by the College of Chiropodists in Ontario. Once the exams are passed, the student can practice in the province.

The area of focus for chiropody is assessing and managing problems in the lower legs and feet—both ongoing issues and injuries. As such, we deal with everything from children’s developmental issues and sports injuries to gait analysis and rheumatology. We focus on alleviating foot pain, helping your feet and legs stay mobile, and educating you about healthy practices to improve your quality of life.

We often team up with other medical professionals to provide you and your family with complete care. For instance, your internist manages your diabetes, but chiropodists can treat and care for your diabetic foot problems. A paediatrician will treat childhood diseases, but we can help straighten their club feet or alleviate their heel pain. It makes sense to take your family’s foot problems to someone who focuses on and has expertise in treating your lower limbs.

Chiropodist Douglas Broad of Achilles Custom Orthotics & Footcare in Cambridge, ON, can diagnose your foot pain, use tests to see what is causing it, find treatments such as custom orthotics, and send you on your way with helpful hints to prevent future discomfort. Give us a call at (519) 624-4122 and set up an appointment today.
