Chiropodist Melbourne, VIC
Were you looking for a Chiropodist in Melbourne, but you were having some difficulty?
Or were you just trying to work out if you needed a Podiatrist or Chiropodist to treat your foot problem?
In Australia, a Podiatrist and Chiropodist are sort of the same thing...
Prior to 1977: what is today called a Podiatrist, was called a Chiropodist.
Chiropody was largerly an unregulated profession at that point.
Due to the change in education level and variety of services offerred by Chiropodists (or Podiatrists), it was decided that the name should be changed to Podiatrist.
Plenty of people still call a Podiatirst by the old name, Chiropodist.
It doesn't really matter, but it can make it hard to find a Melbourne Podiatrist, if you use the term 'Chiropodist" when you are searching for a clinic to get foot treatments.
Today's Podiatrists are able to provide the same services as Chiropodists did, plus a few more.
