Sometime in their lives, seventy-five percent of Americans will experience one or more of 300 different foot ailments. Changes and/or pain in the feet and ankles are not normal. Pay attention to dry skin, brittle nails, burning and tingling sensations, feelings of cold, numbness and discoloration, and contact us when these signs appear. Serious systemic medical conditions like arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders often show their initial symptoms in the feet.
Even bunions, hammertoes and ingrown nails lead to a compromise of foot function. We are here to eliminate these irritating problems and return you to full health and physical vitality.
Much of our information on treatable conditions links directly to the American Podiatric Medicine Association site. The APMA site is an authoritative resource for many of your questions about podiatric medicine.
The condition known as “flat feet” is a structural deformity resulting in the lowering of the foot arches (sometimes referred to as “fallen arches”). There are a number of different causes: heredity, trauma, arthritis, musculoskeletal disorders. Diagnosis begins with a physical exam, gait analysis and possible x-rays. The treatment options include supportive shoes, custom orthotics, or surgery as needed.
