What is a Podiatrist?

Podiatrists are healthcare professionals who are trained to assess, diagnose and treat a range of
foot, ankle and lower limb problems. Innes Graham - Lead Podiatrist for Foot Mechanics Podiatry, NZ

Podiatrists also have extensive knowledge on footwear and the way they assist or disrupt a patient’s natural walking gait. Part of the assessment for foot problems is often a footwear assessment.

To become a Podiatrist, a person must complete an undergraduate degree in Health Science majoring in Podiatry. During this time they get a significant amount of hands on training enabling them to get a thorough understanding of the treatment of foot and lower limb problems.  

Around the world, no other segment of health professionals sees and treats more foot problems day by day than Podiatrists.
