According to the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) recent survey, the majority of Americans say they have experienced foot pain (77 percent), but only a third of those would seek expert care by a podiatrist.
Foot pain can have a profound impact on quality of life. Half of all adults say that foot pain has restricted their activities—like walking, exercising, working, or playing with grandchildren—in some way. For those with chronic foot pain, that number jumps to 83 percent. People say they would exercise more (39 percent) and participate in more activities (41 percent) if it weren’t for their foot pain.
“Podiatrists are physicians, surgeons, and specialists. They treat diseases, injuries, and deformities of the foot and ankle, as well as the foot problems Americans experience most often: heel pain, plantar fasciitis, and nail fungus. They can also catch signs of diabetes, arthritis, and nerve and circulatory disorders, all of which can be detected in the feet.
