Visit a Podiatry Office for Foot Problems Instead of a Family Doctor

If your feet are giving you trouble and you are tired of living with foot pain, visit our podiatry office. Now is an excellent time to do so. With the holiday season upon us, it can become even more obvious when feet are not functioning exactly as they should. With shopping to do, parties to attend and all sorts of fun events and activities, anyone who has foot pain is likely to be out of the action. Whether this means being confined to a wheelchair, walking with a cane or simply avoiding the holiday crowds, foot pain can be debilitating and, in that case, we are here to help. By taking steps today, it could be possible to enjoy the holiday season without this level of pain and discomfort.

WE CAN HELP WITH A VARIETY OF FOOT PROBLEMS

Our podiatry office is designed to help with all sorts of foot problems that our patients could be facing. We treat everything from minor problems to infections and even issues requiring surgery. Some of the common reasons people visit our office are:

These are just a few of the conditions that we treat on a daily basis. Essentially, any problem that is related to the feet is something that we can address in our clinic. We will do so by first completing a thorough examination, taking x-rays, if necessary, and discussing any symptoms that our patient is struggling with.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

Typically, we will recommend that a patient begin their treatment using noninvasive solutions. For example, we can give the patient a pair of customized inserts that can help with foot pain caused by something like flat feet. If those inserts are effective, no other treatment may be necessary.

Which type of noninvasive treatment we recommend will be based on the condition but starting here, allows our patients to find out if there is a simple solution to addressing their foot pain. If not, we have other treatment options as well.

As a podiatrist, we can perform foot surgery and do so on a regular basis. This may be necessary for truly solving a problem and preventing it from becoming worse. In that case, we will make the recommendation for surgery, discuss the process in detail and work with our patients throughout their recovery.

VISITING A PODIATRY OFFICE VERSUS A FAMILY DOCTOR

A family doctor or general physician is highly skilled and able to treat a variety of health conditions. This is the right doctor to visit when dealing with something like a sinus infection, strep throat or general health concern. However, when it comes to the health of the feet, it is far better to visit a good podiatrist. This is because a podiatrist has received additional training beyond that of a general physician. So, for the most comprehensive care, it is best to visit our podiatry office.

SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT

We encourage you to call and schedule an appointment with our office today to find out how we can help to improve the health of your feet and do so before the next holiday season rolls around.
