Podiatrists are licensed medical professionals who treat disorders of the foot, ankle, and other related leg structures. This covers care for the tissues, joints, as well as skin surrounding the lower limb area. Because of this, many people believe that anything concerning their foot has to be brought to the attention of a podiatrist. But that’s not always the case. There are cases where you might need a different specialist altogether.
Foot or ankle problems that originate from areas like the hip, knee, or lower back are best assessed first by podiatrists, chiropractors, or physiotherapists. It’s important to undergo a thorough evaluation to get the best recommendation as to which specialist you need to work with. A proper diagnosis can remove all confusion.Consult with a Podiatrist Today!
