Podiatry is a field of healthcare devoted to the study and treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and sometimes knee, leg and hip (collectively known as the lower extremity). Podiatrists receive core medical training by studying anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, general medicine and microbiology. They then go on to more advanced and specialised training in the examination, diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the feet.
A Podiatrist is a health professional who deals with the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of medical conditions of the feet and lower limbs. Their specialist skills are used to treat minor infections/ailments, defects and injuries, as well as conditions and symptoms relating to other major health disorders to maintain normal mobility and independence.
