One of the beauties of modern medicine is that from head to toe, there’s a doctor out there who’s well-versed in how to care for every inch of the human body. And when it comes to the often overlooked but perennially hard-working feet, the podiatrist is the doctor tasked with keeping you healthy and fully functional.
Given how hard our feet work day in and day out, it should come as no surprise that foot pain and problems related to the lower extremities are quite common. The American Podiatric Medical Association reports that 77 percent of U.S. adults aged 18 and older have experienced foot pain at some point, with about a third of those individuals seeking care from a podiatrist.
The Connecticut Podiatric Medical Association is dedicated to serving its membership through education, public awareness and government representation. The Association promotes the delivery of quality foot care and provides representation to healthcare agencies and national podiatric organizations.
