For many of us, our feet are the furthest things from our minds, both physically and mentally. We expect they'll be uncomfortable at times, and we put up with it when they hurt.

Podiatrists are Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPMs). Today's podiatrists are highly trained physicians, surgeons, and specialists focusing on the foot and ankle and should be an important part of your health-care team. They are integral in keeping America moving and vital to diabetes prevention and management.
