Good question. Podiatrists are registered healthcare professionals trained to treat foot, ankle, and lower limb problems. Solutions to those problems can range from prescription orthotics to minor surgery.
A good podiatrist will take your individual problem, lifestyle, and goals into account before developing an ideal, long term solution.
