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.
