Posts for tag: What is a Podiatrist
Maybe you rolled your ankle playing beach volleyball, or you cut your foot on a seashell, and it just won’t seem to heal. When injuries don’t go away, or you have other health issues with your feet, it is likely time to enlist in some medical help, but what exactly should you expect in a typical podiatrist?
A typical podiatrist, otherwise known as a “foot doctor,” provides diagnosis and treatment for all types of foot ailments, from injuries to types of arthritis to toenail fungus. They can specialize in areas such as surgery, diabetic care, or sports medicine. They are doctors who are educated, experienced, and the most qualified to not only diagnose and treat foot problems, but to help in the prevention of further issues. To put it simply, podiatrists are the experts when it comes to your feet.
