Today's Podiatrist

An astounding 81 percent of obese Americans say they suffer from foot pain and at times experience multiple foot and ankle conditions, according to a recent survey by our organization. An additional 60 percent of obese Americans said that foot pain restricts their regular activity. 

Luckily, today's podiatrists have specialized medical training and unique qualifications in treating the foot and ankle.

Learn more about how today's podiatrist can help treat a variety of foot and ankle conditions. Whether it is heel pain, fungus, or a full ankle reconstruction, today's podiatrist can do it all. 

It is important to note that foot pain is never normal and will not go away on its own. Make an appointment with a podiatrist near you and get moving again
