I just want to say that I am totally grateful to podiatry, as I have suffered horrendous problems with my feet that podiatry is helping me with now. Also, just want to point out that podiatrists are part of the treatment team at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. They and their assistants (the orthotics folks) checked my gait with a computer and are making custom orthotics for me. The professionalism and extensive knowledge of the person who helped me was REALLY impressive. THANKS to y'all!
