Cleveland Clinic Canada’s chiropody service focuses on the assessment and management of foot and lower limb disorders. Our chiropodist works with patients 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 has specialized training to address 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 foot 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.
