What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is a branch of the medical field focused on studying, diagnosing, and treating disorders of the feet and ankles. The feet absorb shock, stabilize the body, and allow us to perform everyday activities that are important to overall well-being. Because the feet are so important for movement, they require professional podiatry services when issues occur. Podiatry care services can treat a wide range of foot conditions, including pain in the feet and cracks or cuts in the skin. A number of diseases have symptoms that originate in the feet, such as diabetes and kidney disease. Podiatry care services can help manage the symptoms and prevent these conditions from worsening.
