Podiatry is the diagnosis and treatment by podiatrists of diseases and other disorders of the feet.
Podiatrists are medically trained healthcare professionals who specialize in diagnosing and treating disorders of the foot and lower limb. They also prevent and correct deformity, keep people mobile and active, relieve pain and treat infections.
Podiatrists use a variety of modalities to diagnose and treat foot problems according to their education and experience. They play an important role in treating the foot and ankle with the Meridian team.

For all Podiatrists only those practitioners who have graduated from an accredited College of Podiatry and who meet the minimum entry requirements are eligible to become licensed members of the College.
