According to the American Podiatric Medical Society (APMS), the average person will have logged 75,000 miles by the time he or she is 50 years old. And that adds up to tons of pressure on your feet. The complicated, delicate bone structure of our feet combined with diseases like diabetes and circulatory issues that affect the feet and poor-fitting shoes can spell chronic foot pain for millions of Americans.
Not until you have experienced the excruciating pain from serious foot conditions do you appreciate the importance of the proper functioning of those hard-working "dogs." Thankfully, the highly-skilled podiatrists at Crozer Health can help.
A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM) who completes four years of training in podiatric medical school and three years of residency. Podiatrists can specialize in many fields, including sports medicine, surgery, wound care, diabetic foot care and pediatric (child) foot care.
