What is Podiatry?
In the allied health spectrum, Podiatry is the specialty concerned with diagnosing, preventing, and treating foot, ankle, and lower extremity conditions.
Podiatrists, with their specific training, are skilled in identifying and addressing biomechanical problems that could lead to injuries or compromised performance, such as;
- Heel Pain
- Foot Pain
- Heel Spur
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shin Splints
- Knee Pain
- Running Injuries
- Flat Feet
- Callus & Corns
- Ingrown Toenails
- Plantar Warts
The human foot has 26 bones, 33 joints plus numerous muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels and nerves. It is an extremely complex and well-designed structure that for most of the time functions normally. However, an injury to any of these structures can quickly become very debilitating and affect a person’s overall health and wellbeing. As a foot and lower leg specialist, a podiatrist can accurately diagnose the cause of the pain and find the underlying cause. This provides a more comprehensive approach that reduces the likelihood of the injury reoccurring while maintaining mobility and independence.
