chiropody

A specialty supplementary to medicine devoted to the care of the feet and the treatment of minor foot complaints such as ingrowing toenails, bunions, plantar warts, foot strain, flat feet and the care of the feet of diabetics. In the United States, chiropody is known as podiatry, the other half of the activity being, perhaps, left to manicurists. From the Greek cheir , hand, and podos , foot.
