What is Podiatry?

A Podiatrist is a healthcare professional who diagnoses, treats, and prevents foot problems. A four-year university degree, Podiatry is an integral part of the health care system in both the public and private sectors.

Foot problems affect athletes and sedentary people alike and can cause pain in the lower back and other joints by changing how you walk or run. Foot problems include infections, sporting or overuse injuries, or can be the consequence of some systemic diseases, such as diabetes.
