What Is Podiatry?

Podiatric medicine, also known as podiatry, deals with the medical care and treatment of diseases on parts of the lower legs, including the foot or ankle. Injuries in these locations, such as fractures or sprains, can also be treated by a foot and ankle specialist in Salisbury, MD. There are many fields of specializations in podiatric medicine. This includes general or constructive surgery, sports medicine, wound care, pediatrics, diabetic care, geriatric foot conditions, and more.

The risk of foot and ankle conditions is higher for people who are suffering from diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and more. So, if you notice symptoms, such as pain or numbing of your feet, dry or cracked skin, or discoloration of your nails, seek podiatric services immediately.

What Is a Podiatrist?

Podiatrists, also called doctors of podiatric medicine, are medical professionals specializing in the treatment of feet and their ailments. Apart from diagnosing and treating feet and ankle problems, they are also trained in prevention and rehabilitation. If you want to ensure optimal mobility before getting into sports or want to restore your foot’s previous health, consulting a podiatrist is beneficial.

Sudden injuries or foot ailments may bring discomfort and inconvenience to your daily life. For that reason, if you notice anything unusual with your feet or have difficulty with walking, reach out to a podiatrist right away.

What Conditions Can Podiatrists Treat?

Our specialists can treat several foot and ankle problems.
