What is Podiatry?
Podiatry is a branch of medicine concerned specifically with foot and lower leg health. As with many branches of health care, podiatry involves working with patients to both prevent and cure, or to offer long term treatment for particular conditions.
What do Podiatrists do?
Podiatrists are highly trained healthcare professionals. They are clinical practitioners who are able to diagnose, treat and advise on a comprehensive range of problems, injuries and conditions of the foot, ankle and leg from below the knee. They are also able to give advice on a variety of issues such as footwear, as well as treating infections, and helping to relieve foot pain.
