Podiatry is the branch of medicine that deals with the treatment of disorders of the foot and ankle. And as we all know, it is quite debilitating to have foot disorders because of their important functions which include:
1. Weight Transmission
The foot transmits the body weight to the ground during standing and ambulation.
2. Balance Posture
Another function of the foot is to maintain balance of posture upon weight bearing positions.
3. Assist in Ambulation
During motion such as walking, jogging, and jumping, the foot and the ankle joint assist in providing different movements.
How can a person perform his normal daily routines such as ambulation when foot conditions are haunting you day to day? It makes one’s life rather inconvenient and bothersome.
