How can a podiatrist help me?

She may assess the way the bones, muscles, and associated structures such as tendons are aligned and interact in feet and ankles. Podiatrists look at factors such as stability, body posture and other musculoskeletal factors. She will take into account the lifestyle, age and history of the patient and may even recommend stretching and strengthening exercises.

Foot surgery is usually recommended by your podiatrist to relieve pain, correct a foot deformity, or restore function in your foot and/or ankle. Many times, it is a last resort and final option for treatment of a foot problem, condition or injury. Most foot surgery is elective, and can take place at the podiatrist's office or at an ambulatory surgery center.
