Sports injuries – What role does the podiatrist play?

Kick-start your career in podiatry today!

Sports injuries are a specialist field within the Podiatry profession.  It is representative of the diverse, varied and exciting career that podiatry can offer.

The College of Podiatry has recently launched a new campaign to promote podiatry in sports with Trevor Prior, a sports podiatrist and podiatric surgeon.



The campaign is taking place on social media over the next two weeks and forms part of a wider strategy to raise the profile of podiatrists, who are specialists in diagnosing and treating foot, ankle and lower-leg conditions.  The aim is also to boost the number of people who might consider a career in this field.
