What is Podiatry?
Podiatrists diagnose and treat conditions that affect the feet, ankles, and lower limbs.
The human foot is made up of bones, joints, and muscles. It is designed to support the body’s weight and provide mobility.
Many factors can cause foot problems, including injury, arthritis, and diabetes. These conditions can be treated by podiatrists using various methods including manual manipulation, exercise, stretching, shockwave therapy, and orthotics (custom made arch supports).
Foot disorders can also be prevented by podiatrists. They can advise about shoes, exercise, and other things to help keep your feet healthy.
