Podiatrists in the Military

Tuesday, 25 October 2022 00:00

Podiatrists are foot specialists that work in a variety of practice areas. Many podiatrists, after undergoing a rigorous training regimen, will open up their own practice. Others may work on a team or for another organization like the military. Podiatrists in the military play a very important role. Individuals in the military need healthy, vibrant feet to function well and properly perform their duties. When a serviceman or woman is having an issue with the health of their feet, a military podiatrist will help them identify and treat the problem. Military podiatrists can work in hospitals that are located both on land and also on ships, depending on the specific position. If you are interested in learning more about podiatrists, reach out to your local podiatrist today.

What Is a Podiatrist?

Someone would seek the care of a podiatrist if they have suffered a foot injury or have common foot ailments such as heal spurs, bunions, arch problems, deformities, ingrown toenails, corns, foot and ankle problems, etc.

Podiatric Treatment

A podiatrist will treat the problematic areas of the feet, ankle or lower leg by prescribing the following:

  • Physical therapy
  • Drugs
  • Orthotic inserts or soles
  • Surgery on lower extremity fractures

A common podiatric procedure a podiatrist will use is a scanner or force plate which will allow the podiatrist to know the designs of orthotics. Patients are then told to follow a series of tasks to complete the treatment. The computer will scan the foot a see which areas show weight distribution and pressure points. The podiatrist will read the analysis and then determine which treatment plans are available.
