To the Physiotherapist & Occupational Therapist 
ProPag would like to introduce Physiotherapists& Occupational Therapist to the knowledge of PODIATRY.

What’s Podiatry..?

“Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the study

of diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot,

ankle and lower extremities.”

How common are foot problems?

Our feet are the foundation of the body. Like a strong foundation of the building determines the quality of the building,healthy feet are the key to an active lifestyle. At least 80% of general population has some foot problem. Unfortunately, due to lack of awareness, people do not know who to consult. Lack of knowledge makes them approach orthopedic doctors and physiotherapists, who can provide them help but only to a limited extent.Knowledge of podiatry helps you to provide that extra support that your patients need. The knowledge of lower limb bio-mechanics, muscle function along with customized insoles can provide the best results that we wish to give our patients. A holistic approach!! Thus, with the extra knowledge of podiatry, we can help patients get long lasting results. In turn, this will help generate great feed backs& even extra revenue (because you are now a SPECIALIST!)
