Podiatry?

FOOT TALK

Let’s talk about Podiatry, the study of the foot and ankle.

Podiatrists are some of the most hard working, dedicated and amicable group of professionals that have devoted their lives to restoring proper health to the lower extremities. Podiatrists do so much: they treat conditions of the skin, nails, muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, nerves, etc. In a world where we are constantly in motion, we  heavily rely on our feet to get us to our destination. For many of us, we have the capability to walk, jump and run all without questioning our  limitations. However, there are hundreds of people that are incapable of performing these actions. These individuals suffer from continuous pain and even immobility; they face harsh daily struggles that most of us could never imagine.

Foot health is a very serious matter, and addition to taking care of your feet, you should consider podiatry as a choice for your future medical profession; it certainly changed our lives,

and I know it could do the same for you!

Foot & Ankle Specialists

In the U.S., Studying for your D.P.M., or Doctor of Podiatric Medicine, is a four year degree followed by three years of residency. You have to apply and be accepted by one of the 9 schools in order to begin the journey of becoming a foot and ankle surgeon. There are several schools across the country, it is up to you to find which one fits best for you.

In podiatry you work on a patient’s foot, so there is no obstruction of face-to-face communication. You get to connect with your patient, understand their occupation, get a glimpse of their lifestyle, and hear about their hobbies in order to restore them to a full, healthy life.

There is so much variety! Surgery, biomechancis, and patients of all ages- you really get a scene of diversity in this field. There is nothing quite like this profession! Its a unique fulfilling lifestyle, with a rewarding one-on-one patient experience.
