Very few people are born with foot and ankle problems, so if you experience pain, talk to a podiatrist. Podiatry focuses on leg health below the knee and includes nail and skin conditions of the feet. Your feet and ankles commonly reflect your body's general health and can show early symptoms of auto-immune, vascular, endocrine, and rheumatologic systemic diseases. Therefore, it’s important to maintain healthy feet. A podiatrist can diagnose and treat foot and ankle-related discomfort or pain.
