What is Podiatry? 

Podiatry is an essential field of allied health that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions related to the feet, ankles, and lower limbs. Podiatrists, commonly known as foot doctors, are highly trained healthcare professionals who use a combination of techniques, including medical, surgical, and rehabilitative, to address 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.
