Podiatry by Brendan Bergin

What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is all about foot health and can act as a key tool in detecting other medical conditions. Podiatrists are qualified health professionals specialising in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and surgical conditions of feet and lower limbs. The Podiatrist's Scope of Practice includes paediatrics, diabetes, sports injuries, structural problems (biomechanics), treatment of the elderly and general foot care. The complex mechanics of feet (52 bones, a network of muscles, joints and ligaments) and a wide range of foot problems (over 200 identified conditions) demand professional expertise.
