Many people ask us: “What’s the difference between a Chiropodist and a Podiatrist”?
Basically, the terms now overlap. It’s reassuring for you to know however, that they are both ‘protected’ titles by law. Only graduate, registered practitioners can legally use the titles “Chiropodist” and “Podiatrist”.
Out of “Podiatry” and “Chiropody” terminology, “Chiropody” still tends to be used in line with regular foot care – of your skin and nails. Our Chiropody sessions therefore, are for general toenail trimming, scalpel removal of hard skin, corns, verruca’s, warts and all!
Regular, routine foot care is central to overall health and well-being. Everyone can feel the benefit of good, regular Chiropody sessions. If you have Diabetes or other medical conditions that impact on your foot health, it’s even more important that you have regular check-ups.
Our Podiatrists (Chiropodists) at our Chester clinic are on hand to help out with your feet! It’s sometimes only when you get a spot of bother, or pain, that you realise the importance of your feet and how much discomfort an ingrown nail or corn can cause. If you find it difficult to look after your feet, our Chiropody services will be just what you need.
For a one-off fix, we can advise and treat you regarding discoloured nails, thickened nails, corns, callouses, ingrown nails, athlete’s foot, and more!
Equally, we’ll happily take up the management and regular treatment of your on-going foot-care and nail-trimming regime.
At our fully refurbished clinic in Chester, we have complete access to the latest equipment which Peter, Ollie and Nicky use to provide your high-quality Chiropody treatments.
Our In Motion Clinic is easy to find on the main A41 in Chester (near Chester Zoo). We also have private, free car parking on-site directly in front of the clinic itself.
We look forward to helping you soon!
We offer full (30 minute) Chiropody appointments for £32.00.
We offer mini (15 minute) Chiropody ‘toenail trim only’ appointments for £22.00.
Awesome team – just amazing! Have been a regular customer and can completely recommend. Thank you for everything!
Wonderful care and treatment. Having a chronic painful condition, it is so good walking out feeling so much better than when I arrived. Thank you.

Our Clinical team also proudly welcomes Tom Woods - graduate Prosthetist and Orthotist - who can provide functional help on any part of the body.
Podiatry is the international name for “Foot Doctors”. It covers more specialist advice and treatment options than general Chiropody (routine foot and nail care).
Whilst our team of Podiatrists can provide specific Lower Limb and Foot treatments, our Physiotherapists add much more.
We are proud to be Chester's first clinic to use an Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy Machine for the benefit of our patients.
