What is Podiatry?
Within the field of allied health, Podiatry is dedicated to diagnosing, preventing, and medically treating disorders affecting the foot, ankle, and lower extremity.
Podiatrists are distinctly trained to spot and treat biomechanical issues likely to cause injury or diminished performance, which include;
- Heel Pain
- Foot Pain
- Heel Spur
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shin Splints
- Knee Pain
- Running Injuries
- Flat Feet
- Callus & Corns
- Ingrown Toenails
- Plantar Warts
Comprising 26 bones, 33 joints, and countless muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves, the human foot is an intricate and well-constructed design that usually works seamlessly. Nonetheless, an injury to any of these components can rapidly become severely incapacitating, affecting an individual's overall health. As foot and lower limb experts, podiatrists can accurately determine the pain's origin and detect the underlying cause, ensuring a thorough approach that lessens the chance of injury repetition while upholding movement and independence.
