The Michener Chiropody Clinic offers hands-on training to Chiropody students and care to regional clients in a clinical setting under the supervision of faculty who are also certified chiropodists.
Chiropodists are primary healthcare providers who treat people of all ages and activity levels. A referral or previous diagnosis is not required to visit a Chiropodist. We offer general and preventative foot care for a wide range of foot conditions. We treat at all the levels of the foot, from surface skin infections to bone and joint pain. Your first visit will include a full history and foot exam which will allow us to develop a comprehensive management plan to meet your foot care needs.

What to Expect During Your Initial Visit
This clinic is a teaching facility. We are committed to providing our patients with high quality foot care, utilizing the most recent techniques and advances available. Your care will be performed by students in The Michener Institute’s Chiropody program. Students treat under the supervision and guidance of licensed Chiropodists who are also clinical faculty.There may be more than one student involved in your care during each appointment. We ask for your cooperation with this to ensure students get quality instruction and hands-on experience at this teaching clinic. You may not see the same student or clinical faculty during each visit, but continuation of care is ensured through detail clinical recording and patient response to previous treatment. Please bring a list of prescribed/non-prescribed medications, your regular shoes and all laboratory and/or imaging reports that are relevant to your foot ailments.
