Welcome to the Podiatry Association of South Africa
This is the official website of the Podiatry Association of South Africa, which represents podiatrists around the country. Established in 1979, we are the recognised voice of podiatry in South Africa, representing podiatrists in both private practice and the public sector. We are dedicated to promoting awareness of foot health, preventing lower limb injuries and assisting our members.
The Podiatry Association works with governments and educational bodies to ensure that a quality podiatry service is available when and where it is needed. Foot health should not be trusted with just anyone — make sure that your podiatrist is a member of the Podiatry Association of South Africa.
What is a Podiatrist?
A podiatrist is a highly trained professional in the care of the foot and ankle. Podiatrists are concerned with the examination, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of foot ailments by biomechanical, surgical and other treatment methods.
Podiatrists are often called upon by other physicians and health care professionals for consultation and treatment of foot problems, which can be experienced by everyone from children to seniors.
After all, you only have one pair of feet to last a lifetime.
