20 Reasons to See a Podiatrist and Get Your Feet Back on Track

July 7, 2016 at 2:07 pm

June marked Men’s Health Month, and this time around we’re talking about feet. As a father, friend, husband, employee, and all around super hero, your feet are constantly working.

Facts about your feet:

  • Your foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
  • The average person takes 7,500 steps per day.
  • You will take 216,262,500 steps in your life if you live to be 80 (ouch!).
  • It takes about 2,000 steps to walk a mile.

Your feet carry you while walking and running, bear your weight when standing in line, and turn the pedals on your bike. When we expect our feet to always be there for us – no questions asked – it’s easy to take them for granted. After a while, your feet may begin to fight back, and when they do, you’ll know it.

So, you’re having foot issues and aren’t sure who to talk to? A podiatrist of course! A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM) – or someone who diagnoses and treats conditions of the foot, ankle, and related areas. Always look for the letters “DPM” after his or her name to make sure they are the most qualified to give you superior foot care. DPMs are trained similar to other doctors with 4 years at podiatric medical school and three years hospital residency training.

Signs you should see a podiatrist:
