About Us

The West Virginia Podiatric Medical Association (WVPMA) is a state component of the American Podiatric Medical Association.

Our chief purpose is to achieve higher standards of medical practice in our profession, to raise the standard of education required of those physicians who  practice podiatry, to secure the enactment of proper laws governing the practice of podiatry and to create an informed public opinion on all matters relating to the profession.

We advocate, educate and legislate the practice of podiatric medicine in West Virginia.

Did you know…

Painful feet are not normal

You may need a shoe insert called an orthotic that is designed to relieve painful arches, heel pain or provide additional  foot and ankle support. If your feet ache following walking, exercising or you have a job that requires standing, orthotic inserts may be of benefit to you. Ask your podiatric physician about your foot pain.

Podiatric physicians can recommend diabetic shoes

Your podiatric physician can also fit or recommend diabetic shoes should you need special shoes to avoid foot ulcerations or have neuropathy due to diabetes.

DPMs are foot and ankle specialists

– They can be Board Certified in Fore Foot or Rear Foot and Ankle.
– They can be Board Certified in Wound Care.
– They attend podiatric medical college and undertake a three-year residency and are physicians.
– Your hospital or nursing home may have a DPM on staff.
– Podiatric physicians and surgeons are licensed Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPMs) by the WV Board of Medicine.
