What is a podiatrist?
Your body is a complex piece of machinery and your feet are a very important part of it. Think of a podiatrist has a Foot Doctor. People with foot problems will call upon a podiatrist to deal with issues with their feet.
Podiatry is a highly specialised area that deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of foot and lower extremity problems. People often wrongly suffer with their feet problems but when you think, our foot is very complex – it has 26 bones, 33 joints, and 126 muscles, ligaments, and nerves. At Perfect Balance our specialist podiatrists in London can help with most foot and ankle problems as well as some causes of back pain coming from the feet. This is important because knee pain or lower back pain can be connected to a foot problem.
