We treat our patients as individuals with expertise in treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, including tendinopathies, arthritic and rheumatic conditions, fractures, disfigurements, skin conditions, and fractures. Foot/ankle problems are often the result of a problem with one or more of the structures or components of the feet or ankles. The goal of family foot care is to offer comprehensive patient care by evaluating the condition of your feet and ankle to determine the best treatment plan. In providing a complete assessment, we try to ensure that the patient is given the best shot at recovery, with a reasonable chance of a full return to daily activity.
The most common reason for contacting us today is acute heel pain caused by inflammation or tendonitis. Tendonitis results in swelling in the tendons around the heel, affecting the active lifestyle in a significant way. Our podiatrist will take a history and examine the foot, diagnose the condition, and offer treatment plans. Family foot care will include ultrasound, edema checks, x-rays, and other relevant diagnostic procedures to rule out any underlying structural or physiological causes for the condition.
Foot stress is another leading cause for call to a podiatrist. It can result from an accident or injury in which the foot is severely bruised or even broken. Often, family foot care takes the x-ray images and then discusses the situation with the patient’s doctor to come up with the best course of action for the patient. Many times, family foot care also includes chiropractic care, since the cause of pain may be a structural problem that can be corrected with chiropractic adjustments.
Bunions are a common form of foot deformity, resulting from corns, calluses, or bone spurs that form on the big toe. Any change in the structure of the big toe can result in bunions, and it is the job of family foot care to treat them as effectively as possible. Most people with bunions do not have pain-free footwear, so podiatrists often recommend complete shoe replacement. In more severe cases, when the bone spurs have protruded out of the toes, or if there is a bulge, then surgery may be required to correct the problem. A highly skilled podiatrist will make the decision about the course of treatment, including whether to remove the protruding bone or to perform some other kind of foot repair.
Ankle pain, also known as heel pain or shin pain, is a common problem that is seen frequently among athletes, but can be an embarrassing condition for everyone. One of the first steps in providing comprehensive family foot care is to determine the exact source of the pain. If the source is a physical bump, such as a bump on the heel, then patients should try to relax the area and apply ice, rest, and over the counter pain medication. If the cause is a chronic problem caused by stress on the body, such as an injury, then patients should find a way to eliminate that stress, such as getting a massage, taking up yoga, or changing lifestyles. Often, simple adjustments can make a big difference in the long run.
Prevention is always better than cure, so keeping up with good foot care is important for prevention. For minor injuries or bunions, patients can choose from the many stylish styles of sandals, flip-flops, or even flip-flops with built in arch supports to protect the arch. Foot orthotics, which are custom made shoes or inserts for shoes, are available to correct flat feet and promote healthy arches. In more extreme cases, patients should consider the complete replacement of their feet.
