Podiatry is an Allied health profession, devoted to the study, diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower extremity.
Basic hygiene and nail cutting may be all that's needed to keep your feet in good health, but if you develop a problem, you can get professional help from a podiatrist (also known as a chiropodist). Podiatrists can help with a range of issues with your feet.
