What is a Podiatrist?
A podiatrist (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) is a specialist in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of foot and ankle problems and other related structures. Podiatrists treat common foot conditions including bunions, hammertoe, plantar fasciitis, and neuroma, as well as injuries to the foot and ankle, such as sprains and stress fractures. Four years of podiatry residency training and three years in the hospital are required for podiatrists. They may also specialize in surgery, wound care and pediatrics.
About Riverside Missouri
Riverside is a city in Platte County, Missouri and is part of the Kansas City metropolitan area within the United States. The population was 2,937 at the 2010 census.
Riverside lies on the edge of the Missouri River and was formally incorporated in 1951.
For many years, the town was known for its Riverside Race Track. The Riverside Park Jockey Club operated from 1928 to 1937 and was popularly called “Pendergast Track” after its patron, big city boss Tom Pendergast (although Pendergast was not officially on its organization papers). The horse racing track was on the site of a former dog racing track. The track operated under a questionable legal basis. The site was supplanted by an automobile race track, which closed in the 1990s.
A legal gambling establishment on the river now is the $106 million casino run by Argosy Gaming Company.
One of the landmarks in Riverside is the Riverside Red X store. It was founded as a gas station in 1948 by Edward Young. Over time, Young expanded the store into selling many different product lines. Young and local business owners Ferd Filger and Dr. Thomas M. Eagle led the incorporation of Riverside in 1951, after both Parkville and Kansas City expressed interest in annexing the area. As of 2015, the store was still owned by the Young family and was well known around the Kansas City area for selling cheap beer, wine, cigarettes and gasoline.
The Renner Village Archeological Site was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1969.
