While podiatrists do not attend conventional medical school, they are still considered as doctors. Podiatrists work in sync with other healthcare professionals in most cases.
Podiatrists start their evaluation of patients with a detailed analysis of the patient's medical history. Information about medications and prior surgeries are also factored in before the treatment begins. Patients may have to demonstrate their walking style and functionality of their joints, to help the podiatrist in assessing the problem. The treatments are usually administered in the clinic itself. Additionally, physical therapy or orthotics may also be prescribed to expedite healing. Common issues encountered by podiatrists include: Arthritis: Primary causes are inflammation and wear and tear of the joints.
