Podiatry is the branch of medicine that studies, diagnoses and treats disorders of the foot and ankle. Foot pain is not something to be ignored. It can often be thought of simply as a normal consequence of a busy life, since many of us experience it at some time. Some studies say that 75% of Americans will experience foot health problems at one time or another. Neglect and improper care, such as ill-fitting shoes, can contribute greatly to foot and ankle disorders. Our feet are critical to keep us moving, so it’s important to keep them healthy. 

Whether it’s sports medicine, dermatology or diabetes, Mercy Health’s podiatrists tackle many types of foot and ankle care.
