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
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.
