What is a Podiatrist?
Also known as a doctor of podiatric medicine, is the only physician whose total training focuses on the foot, ankle and related body systems. Also commonly known as a foot doctor, a podiatrist is dedicated to the medical & surgical treatment of foot and ankle disorders.
Podiatrists work closely with internists and other specialties involved in a patient's overall healthcare. The foot may be the first area to show signs of serious conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease. For example, diabetics are prone to foot ulcers and infections due to poor circulation and lack feeling in the feet.
Podiatrists treat plantar fasciitis, bunions, ingrown toenails, corns, calluses, heel spurs, and arch problems; ankle and foot injuries, deformities, and infections; and foot complaints associated with diseases such as diabetes and gout. To diagnose a foot problem, podiatrists may take x-rays, order laboratory tests, or perform more advanced testing. To treat these foot problems -- podiatrists may prescribe medication, order physical therapy, set fractures, and perform surgery. They also fit custom-made corrective inserts called orthotics. Foot doctors are uniquely qualified to detect warning signs in the early stages of disease in the lower extremities.
The journey to happy feet begins with healthy feet.
