Today's Podiatrist: Your plantar fasciitis expert

Today’s Podiatrist is the heel pain expert. Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPMs) complete years of rigorous foot and ankle training in podiatric medical school and hospital-based residency and are uniquely qualified to treat plantar fasciitis and other conditions that cause heel pain.

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.
