Importance of Seeing a Podiatrist

Most people encounter pain in their feet and ankles at some point in their lives, but many do not take their pain seriously, or they think that the pain will go away eventually. Your foot has 26 bones, and over 100 tendons and ligaments that work together in a complex manner to support your body weight. It is therefore very important to take good care of your feet and ankles and to make sure any discomfort is addressed.

A Podiatrist is a foot and ankle specialist who knows how to diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions such as injuries, bunions, plantar fasciitis, and skin diseases.

Below are reasons why it is always important to consult a podiatrist:
