Podiatrists are health professionals and are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of medical and surgical conditions of the foot. Common problems addressed by podiatrists include common skin conditions such as corns, calluses and warts, as well as infections of both the skin and nails. Painful ingrown nails can be almost immediately relieved with podiatry and for chronic cases ther is the option for permanent surgical correction under local anesthetic.
More complicated systemic conditions such as diabetes and arthritis can have implications on the circulatory and neurological health of one’s foot and can also affect general mobility making every day tasks difficult. Developmental problems such as flat feet, knock knee, pigeon toe and postural alignment issues can interfere with correct growth and activity. In all these cases mentioned, podiatry can play an important role in providing relief and preventing long term complications.
