A Chiropodist is a medical professional who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of foot disorders. This involves an analysis of the patient's way of walking, also called the "gait analysis", to diagnose foot, leg and back pain, and make recommendations for how to relieve such discomfort. The practice of chiropody include (but is not limited to) prescribing orthotics and orthopedic shoes, and in rare instances prescribing medical socks.
The practice of Chiropody is regulated and practitioners must undergo government established and recognized programs and examinations.
Only those who are registered by the Ontario College of Chiropodist are licensed to practice as Chiropodists in Ontario.
Physiotherapy is a type of treatment that uses modalities such as IFC, Tens, ultrasound, heat and ice to relieve pain. Exercise programs are also prescribed to improve ranges of motion, restore muscle strength and endurance and return patients to normal activities of daily living.
Chiropractic treatment uses a similar treatment approach to physiotherapy such as modalities and active exercise programs. In addition chiropractors focus on the examination, diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to the musculoskeletal system.
Massage therapy is a process of manual treatment of the body's muscular and soft tissue structures. The benefits are increased ranges of motion and flexibility, stress reduction and improved circulation helping to achieve an overall feeling of well-being.
Laser therapy is a revolutionary form of treatment which is used in the treatment of a wide range of acute and chronic conditions. This form of therapy uses low intensity laser to promote healing within the cells.
