What is Podiatry? 

Podiatry is an important area of allied health that is focused on diagnosing, treating, and preventing conditions of the feet, ankles, and lower limbs. Foot doctors, also known as podiatrists, are highly qualified healthcare professionals who use a variety of methods, including medical, surgical, and rehabilitative techniques, to address foot and ankle problems.  

Podiatrists work with patients of all ages, from children to the elderly, and provide care for individuals with a wide range of medical conditions, such as diabetes, sports injuries, and arthritis. They play an important role in helping people maintain their mobility, independence, and overall quality of life. By providing tailored care, advice, and treatment, podiatrists can help prevent further complications and improve the overall health and well-being of their patients.
