Our feet are complex and hard-working parts of our body that carry us through our life’s journey. They are what keep us grounded and keep us moving. Being that they play such an important role in our life, we must keep them healthy, just as we do our hearts and minds.
Feet shouldn’t hurt. Yet many people walk around in pain because they don’t know what to do or who to see about their aching feet.
For those in the know, podiatrists are the sought after experts in foot and ankle health. A podiatrist is a doctor of Podiatric Medicine. They are physicians and surgeons who specialize in the foot and ankle. Podiatrists complete four years of podiatric medical school followed by three years in hospital residency training. Podiatrists become board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. Many podiatrists receive specialized surgical training during their residency. Podiatrists can specialize in different fields such as surgery, diabetic foot care, wound care, pediatrics and sports medicine.
