What is a Podiatrist?
A podiatrist, also called a doctor of podiatric medicine, is a specialist who provides medical diagnosis and treatment of foot and ankle problems.
What is foot pain?
The foot is made up of 28 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles, and numerous tendons. Complex biomechanics keep all these in the right position and moving together. Given these intricacies, it is not surprising that most people will experience some problem with their feet at some point in their lives.
How do I know if I should call a podiatrist?

- Change in the color, temperature, or appearance on your feet, skin, or toenails.
- You have blisters or a rash on your foot or feet.
