What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is the medical specialty that deals with the feet and lower limbs. Podiatrists diagnose, treat, and prevent foot conditions such as arthritis, ingrown toenails, corns, bunions, and calluses.

Podiatrists treat conditions that affect the feet and lower limbs, including diabetes, arthritis, bunions, corns, bunions, ingrown toenails, athlete’s foot, plantar warts, and other skin conditions. They can also prescribe medications for these conditions and treat injuries or infections in your feet. In addition to treating these common ailments, podiatrists may also focus on surgery, such as toenail removal or laser treatment for calluses and corns.

Podiatrists specializing in sports medicine may treat athletes’ feet after injuries by removing dead tissue from the soft tissue around their bones (the periosteum). They may also offer treatments for plantar fasciitis (inflammation of the plantar fascia) or Achilles tendinitis (inflammation of tendons in the ankle).

At Jiva Health

We believe treating your feet is as important as treating your heart. We take the time to get to know you and ensure that each patient has a unique treatment plan tailored to their needs.

Podiatry is the study of the feet and their anatomical, physiological, and pathological relationships to other parts of the body. While most podiatrists are general practitioners, some specialize in sports medicine or orthopedic surgery.

When many people think of podiatry, they think of doctors who treat injuries and diseases related to the feet. But podiatrists also work with athletes, dancers, and anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet. Podiatrists can help you prevent injury by identifying preventable problems before they become chronic conditions requiring further treatment. They can also help you recover from injuries more quickly so you can return to your regular activities sooner rather than later.
