Podiatry

Care of the feet is primary, secondary and tertiary prevention and part of quality of life. People who are homebound or bedbound have foot health needs which range from preventing falls to preventing a pressure ulcer of the heel. A podiatrist is a specialist trained to do preventive exams of areas not easily seen from the patient's perspective. A podiatrist has special instruments for thick nails and hard spots on the skin. Preventive foot care starts with a professional foot physical exam and advice on how care for the skin, nails, nerves, circulation and bones of the feet. A podiatric exam of the feet looks for skin problems which predispose to bacterial and fungal infections. Detecting a problem with circulation and neuropathy typically results in directions and precautions to prevent ulcers and deep infection. For those with diabetes and deformity of the bones of feet an individualized plan of care of the feet is essential to reducing pain and complications which impact quality of life.
