Podiatry

 
Podiatry is a medical specialty focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders and injuries of the foot and ankle. Podiatrists are healthcare professionals who provide specialized care for issues affecting the lower extremities. They are trained to diagnose, treat, and manage conditions that affect how we walk and move around. This includes identifying problems like heel pain, bunions, ingrown nails, plantar fasciitis, diabetes-related wounds, and more.
 
 
 
When it comes to injury care specifically, podiatrists can provide preventive services to reduce risk of injury or help with healing after an accident has already occurred. They may use special techniques such as padding orthotics or therapeutic exercise to aid in recovery. Moreover, they play a key role in helping patients manage the long-term effects of injuries, such as chronic pain or loss of mobility.
