Your Podiatry Questions Answered

Podiatrists are allied health professionals who specialize in diagnosing, treating, and preventing conditions related to the feet and lower limbs.

Podiatrists treat foot pain, sports injuries, ingrown toenails, diabetic foot care, and other issues. Podiatry can also involve orthotics, wound care, and other corrective procedures.

With their expertise in foot health, podiatrists play a crucial role in promoting mobility and alleviating discomfort. If you’re experiencing foot-related concerns, consulting a knowledgeable podiatrist can provide personalized care and help you put your best foot forward.

In the past, both chiropodists and podiatrists used to refer to foot specialists. However, in recent years, the profession has focused on the term podiatrist.

While some practitioners may still identify as chiropodists, the preferred and more commonly used term is podiatrist. It’s also important to note that podiatrists are recognized and regulated healthcare professionals specializing in foot care in Canada.

In general, you don’t need a referral to see a podiatrist. You can directly book an appointment with a podiatrist for your foot or lower limb concerns. During your podiatry appointment, the podiatrist will conduct an examination, assess your medical history, and discuss your symptoms.

In some cases, a podiatrist may order diagnostic tests if necessary. Based on their findings, the podiatrist will provide a personalized treatment plan, including interventions such as orthotics, nail and skin care, physical therapy, or minor surgical procedures.

General podiatry visits are often not covered by provincial health insurance, although some health plans will cover podiatry, especially if medically necessary. It’s always best to check if your province and your insurance cover podiatry services.

Without insurance, the cost of visiting a podiatrist in Canada can vary depending on location, specific services needed, and individual clinic fees. In general, the cost of an initial consultation with a podiatrist can range from $100 to $200 or more. Later visits or treatments may have additional charges.
