History of Podiatry

Podiatry, Chiropody, Foot Doctor, Podiatric Medicine – whatever you call it – it’s all the same. The actual care of feet as a profession goes far back as ancient history; drawings have been identified in tombs showing feet being cared for.

The first Chiropody Society was founded 1895 in New York.

Podiatry has come along way and, as with all trades, new technology, research and equipment is consistently produced so Podiatrists can take better care for their clients foot health.
