Specializing in medicine & surgery of the foot & ankle.
Americans spend a great deal of time on their feet. As the Nation becomes more active across all age groups, the need for foot care will become increasingly important.
The human foot is a complex structure. It contains 26 bones-plus muscles, nerves, ligaments, and blood vessels-and is designed for balance and mobility. The 52 bones in the feet make up about one-fourth of all the bones in the human body. A podiatrist, also known as a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPMs) (a foot doctor) diagnoses and treats disorders, diseases, and injuries of the foot and lower leg.
Podiatrists treat corns, calluses, ingrown toenails, bunions, heel spurs, and arch problems; ankle and foot injuries, deformities, and infections; and foot complaints associated with diabetes and other diseases. To treat these problems, podiatrists prescribe drugs and physical therapy, set fractures, and perform surgery. They also fit corrective shoe inserts called orthotics, design plaster casts and strappings to correct deformities, and design custom-made shoes. Podiatrists may use a force plate or scanner to help design the orthotics: patients walk across a plate connected to a computer that “reads” their feet, picking up pressure points and weight distribution. From the computer readout, podiatrists order the correct design or recommend another kind of treatment.
To diagnose a foot problem, podiatrists also order x rays and laboratory tests. The foot may be the first area to show signs of serious conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease. For example, patients with diabetes are prone to foot ulcers and infections because of poor circulation. This is commonly known as diabetic foot. Podiatrists consult with and refer patients to other health practitioners when they detect symptoms of these disorders. Serving the Vero Beach, Florida area in Indian River County .
