ATHLETIC INJURIES:

The foot and ankle are commonly injured in athletics. These injuries may be in the form of a stress fracture, heel pain, or an inflamed tendon. Our office explains how an injury occurs and reviews various treatment options. We try to keep the athlete active in performing other exercises while the injured area heals. Time is also spent educating the patient on how to prevent injuries.

ORTHOTICS:

Orthotics are custom made shoe inserts. They are used for painful bunions, heel pain, flat feet, and some foot injuries. To make orthotics, a biomechanical exam is performed and the patient’s foot is casted. These inserts are sent to a laboratory with a prescription to treat the affected foot problem. Orthotics usually last many years and are easily transferable from one pair of shoes to another.

SHOES:

The diabetic patient needs to be educated about their feet. Biannual exams and patient education are extremely important. Many potential problems related to a diabetic’s foot can be prevented through education. Our office dispenses diabetic shoes with soft insoles. This helps prevent foot related problems.

ROUTINE FOOT CARE :

Our office treats many common foot problems. These include corns, callouses, and ingrown nails. We also treat skin conditions such as warts, Athlete’s Foot, and abrasions. Most of these conditions can be remedied on the first visit.
