Friday Wisdom – Podiatrist

This week I went to my podiatrist to follow up on my plantar fasciitis. The good news is that my foot is healing fine and should be just like new in six months. The even better news is that I learned a lot about podiatry, so here’s what I know:

Did you know that podiatrists make great detectives – they always know when there’s trouble afoot.

I found out the difference between a baker and a podiatrist: One feels the heat and the other heals the feet.

It’s kind of sad, but podiatrists can never win. They have already seen da feet.

There was an article in the news about two podiatrists that hated each other. Yup, they were arch enemies.

I had to see a second podiatrist. The first one didn’t know his right from left. Let’s just say we got off on the wrong foot.

My grandson took his dog to see a podiatrist. When he walked into the office there was a long uncomfortable paws.

I needed to see a podiatrist and called to make an appointment, but they said they were only taking limp-ins.

Did you hear that Santa went to see a podiatrist? Santa thought he had mistletoe.

What’s a podiatrist’s favorite vehicle to drive? Yup, a toe truck.

My podiatrist told me he was feeling proud that his son just got accepted to podiatry school. Apparently his son wanted to follow in his father’s foot steps.

I wasn’t sure the podiatrist could help with my foot problem, but I stand corrected.

I was working on the podiatry joke, but I thought it would be too corny.

Podiatrists don’t use the metric system, they work with feet.

My podiatrist told me that he once saw a shoe factory burn down. He said it was sole destroying.

My podiatrist told me a story about a patient who cut off a large chunk of his foot, but it turned out okay as it’s almost all heeled.

My podiatrist said he could always tell if someone was lazy. Apparently lazy people wear loafers.

My podiatrist said that the best food to eat for foot health is Shoe-shi.

  1. Topical for me too. Darn plantar fasciitis struck me several months ago. But I’m on the mend, just don’t laugh at my orthopedic shoes like little ol’ ladies wear. πŸ˜‰

  2. I went to a podiatrist last March for the same problem and left with no useful information other than to buy some (expensive) insoles he recommended (which I returned). I treated it myself with ice and a different pair of shoes.

    You’re really dealing with plantar fasciitis, Andrew? You alright? You can walk but it’s just painful, or…?

    “… but I stand corrected” – groan. I can always count on at least one of these to stand out.

    An excellent selection as always. I thought that you might struggle with such a specialised subject but I did laugh out loud at least once, the joke about “only taking limp-ins”. Incidentally, I think your podiatrist is our chiropodist. Another case of “you say either and I say either”.

    I have a wonderful podiatrist. Never needed one until I dropped a 10 pound weight on my left big toe. He took and x-ray and found a bone in the toe was broken.
