Most people have heard of podiatry but may wonder what it is or what it does. Podiatrists are medical doctors and surgeons who specialize in the feet, ankles, and lower legs. They can provide diagnosis and treatment of ailments, as well as offer advice. At Suburban Foot & Ankle Associates of Illinois , we understand that anyone of any age can fall a victim to pain in the heels and feet. Whether you’re an athlete, inactive person, or someone who works a lot, you may need help from specialists like us.
You may also notice that you have problems with the feet and ankles because of a disease targeting another area of the body such as the kidneys or anemia – a blood disorder.
