FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Podiatrists treat a wide range of foot and ankle problems. Here we have answered some frequently asked questions regarding podiatry.
If you can’t find your question below, please feel free to get in touch.
WHAT IS A PODIATRIST?
A podiatrist is a medical professional specializing in the treatment of disorders relating to the feet, ankles, and lower limbs. Podiatrists must complete 4 years of undergraduate study and 4 years in podiatric medical school. They must also complete 3 years of hospital residency training.
WHY SHOULD I SEE A PODIATRIST?
Your entire body weight rests on your feet, so your feet have to undergo a lot of hard work. Your feet are comprised of bones, ligaments, muscles, and tissues that must be healthy and work perfectly to keep you moving.
You must see a podiatrist if you experience foot pain, have thick or discolored toenails, or have cracks or cuts on the skin of the feet. If you have any kind of growth on your feet like warts or experience any scaling or peeling on your soles, you must consult a podiatrist. Numbness or swelling in the feet, fungal infections, or painful calluses are also some common reasons to see a podiatrist. Diabetic patients must also visit a podiatrist regularly to prevent the occurrence of diabetic foot.
IF I HAVE FOOT PAIN, SHOULD I SEE A PODIATRIST OR AN ORTHOPEDIST?
Orthopedists specialize in conditions of the musculoskeletal system. Podiatrists, on the other hand, specialize in conditions of the feet, ankles, and lower limbs. Both of them can treat foot pain, surgically and non-surgically. However, a surgically trained podiatrist is a better option to treat a foot injury than a general orthopedic surgeon, due to the fact they have the specialized experience and knowledge.
WHAT AILMENTS DOES A PODIATRIST TREAT?
Podiatrists treat a variety of ailments like fractures and sprains, bunions, hammertoes, and nail disorders, such as thickened toenails, fungal nail infections, or ingrown toenails. They also treat corns, calluses, verrucas, athlete’s foot, smelly feet, dry and cracked heels, flat feet, heel pain, aging feet, blisters, gout, and sports injuries.
CAN A PODIATRIST PERFORM FOOT SURGERIES?
Yes, podiatrists can perform foot surgeries. Some common foot surgeries that podiatrists perform are bunionectomy, correction of hammertoes, Morton’s neuroma, and metatarsal arthritis.
WHY SHOULD DIABETICS SEE A PODIATRIST?
Chronic diabetes is known to cause many nerve and circulatory problems in the feet. Diabetes delays the healing of any cuts or bruises on the feet that can soon become a breeding ground for infections. Thus, diabetics should periodically see a podiatrist for a comprehensive foot examination.
DOES MY HEALTH INSURANCE COVER THE SERVICES OF A PODIATRIST?
Most services that a podiatrist performs are covered under standard health insurance. There may be certain exceptions that can be clarified by your insurance service provider.
