What is Podiatry? 

Podiatry is an essential allied health field that deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of issues related to the feet, ankles, and lower limbs. Foot doctors, also known as podiatrists, are knowledgeable healthcare experts who use a variety of methods, from medical to surgical and rehabilitative approaches, to treat foot and ankle problems.  

Podiatrists are responsible for treating patients of all ages, from children to the elderly, who have a range of medical conditions, including diabetes, sports injuries, and arthritis. Their work is vital in helping people maintain their independence, mobility, and overall quality of life. By providing tailored care, advice, and treatment, podiatrists can prevent further complications and promote the overall health and well-being of their patients.
