How is a podiatrist different from an orthopedist?

In short, podiatrists provide more comprehensive and specialized foot and ankle care. While orthopedic physicians specialize in bone and joint structures throughout the body, podiatrists specialize solely in the diagnosis and treatment of foot, heel, and ankle problems. These include problems with the bones and joints but also involve skin, tissue, toenail problems. 

How do custom orthotics work?

Our bodies naturally compensate to make walking more comfortable when we have foot issues like poor arches or plantar fasciitis.  Over time, this can result in persistent knee, hip, and back pain that is often mistaken for a separate injury. Orthotics provide support and help correct misalignment of the feet, relieving stress on the rest of the body. 

You can buy orthotic inserts at any shoe store, but you will always get the best results from a custom orthotic designed to fit your foot and provide the exact support you need, where you need it. Custom orthotics also tend to last longer than store bought inserts. 

What is the best way to avoid injuring my feet and ankles?

Your feet and ankles do a lot of work day to day. Take care of them by wearing well-fitting shoes that are appropriate for the activity you're doing. Avoid flip-flops and other shoes which offer little to no support. 

Make sure to stretch before any physical activity, and use braces or wraps to give your ankles extra support when needed.
