Foot pain, heel pain and back pain can be quite disturbing as they might compromise your mobility. Podiatrists and Osteopaths are specialists who help with these problems. Podiatry deals with the disorders of the ankle, the foot and the lower extremities such as heel spur, ingrown toenails and plantar fasciitis while osteopathy is treatment modalities that utilize manipulation and massage of joints, bones and muscles.
Thus, a podiatrist diagnoses and treats conditions affecting the foot, ankle and structures of the leg such as bone spurs, while an osteopath utilizes manipulation and massage of joints, bones and muscles in treating conditions affecting these body parts. Conditions within the scope of these two specialties include fractures, arthritis, sciatica, lower back pain, diabetic ulcers, infectious diseases. Foot conditions of special interest to podiatrists include bunions, corn, flat feet and high arches. An osteopath focuses mainly on the management and treatment of chronic pains owing to disorders in joints, muscles and bones (pain in ball of foot, heel pain, toe pain, foot pain, knee pain and lower back pain).
