Podiatry is the branch of medicine related to foot and lower limb disorders. The role of the podiatrist (also known as a chiropodist) is to prevent or correct deformity and maintain normal mobility and function.
Podiatrists provide the basis for the ideal walking style and posture and any medical or surgical condition that may require further referral and management. They also relieve pain, treat skin and nail problems. This is done in conjunction with other members of the health care team.
Podiatrists can also give expert advice on footwear, so it is a good idea to take a pair of shoes with you when you next see your podiatrist.

Healthy feet are essential for healthy ageing yet three out of four people develop foot problems as they age.
Healthy feet allow you to be active which has numerous benefits such as keeping weight off; maintaining and improving muscle and bone strength; and improving our emotional and mental health, to name a few.
Feet that are healthy allow for proper foot and body mechanics which help prevent falls; a major cause of disability in seniors.
Correct foot care can alert people to early signs of other more serious health issues such as diabetes or poor circulation.
