Foot & Ankle

What Does a Podiatrist Do?

Podiatrists specialize in the treatment of the lower limbs and feet. A few of the common conditions they might see patients for include arthritis, soft tissue injury, balance issues, and bunions. But did you know that they will often see patients who suffer from diabetes, blood disorders, and kidney problems? This is because these conditions can adversely affect circulation and have a direct effect on foot health. For example, amputation is a very real concern for diabetes sufferers- a podiatrist can help patients follow a program of leg exercises and massage to improve circulation so that the feet and legs remain healthy.
