Your foot also deserve all the care and pampering



We take care of our skin. Our body, our health, even of our looks and appearance but sometimes forget our foot or give then the last priority. Whereas our feet carry us everywhere irrespective of our weight, looks and we forget to take care of it. But medicines have not forgotten it and therefore have a dedicated branch for our foot only which is called as Podiatric Medicine. Podiatry or Podiatry medicine is the study, diagnosis and treatment of various disorders of foot, angle and lower leg. It also includes rehabilitation of medical conditions of the feet and the lower leg.

Various diseases and disorders treated by Podiatrists include corns, calluses, ingrown toenails, bunions, heel spurs and ankle and foot injuries and infections. The disorders and complications arising in lower limbs because of arthritis are also treated by podiatrists. Sometimes a child also develops certain deformities which are also diagnosed and treated by podiatrists. The early detection and treatment of child’s feet helps in proper development of the feet before the growth of a child, as an adult ceases.

Podiatrists are also known as doctor of podiatric medicine often abbreviated as DPM. Podiatrists enjoys a good remuneration are both self-employed and salary based employees in offices and health centers. To become a Podiatrist, one needs to undergo three years of degree and then has to get himself or herself registered with the concerned board of the country as a Podiatrist practitioner. Podiatrist also undergoes the internship program and then has to obtain the license. This license is required to practice as podiatrist and is obtained after qualifying the examination at provincial and federal level. Podiatrists are authorized to do nail and cutaneous surgery but it is advisable that one must undergone the knives of the podiatrist who has further specializes in surgery. Podiatrists also design Orthoses. Orthoses are the custom made shoes insertions that are used to prevent foot pathology. They are made to align the structure of the foot to work in its most suitable position.

There are certain occupations like factory workers, hairdressers and nurses, where the person is more prone to develop foot disorders due to excessive standing and walking. Therefore a proper care of the feet should be taken and even the minute pattern change should be noticed and informed to the podiatrist. This phenomenon is called as occupational podiatry. Many of them can be found in Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver and many other cities.
