If you have ankle and heel pain, an ingrown toenail, or another leg and foot condition, you need to see a doctor. But do you know which doctor is best suited to treat your foot and ankle condition? A podiatrist is the best possible doctor you can turn to for these types of health issues.

A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine who specializes in lower leg, foot and ankle problems. He or she is best suited to help you if you have a bunion, ankle fracture, ingrown toenail, heel pain, nerve pain in your feet, trouble walking, or another type of foot condition. This is because podiatrists spend four years studying medicine and lower extremity disorders following college. They also have to complete three years of residency training, allowing them to gain hands on experience in medicine and surgery of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. Because of the extensive education and training, a podiatrist is best equipped to treat your foot, leg, ankle, and heel pain.
