We have found that many people live with foot pain but are unsure of how to treat it or the benefits of visiting a podiatry office. We encourage anyone who is struggling with foot or ankle pain or mobility restrictions to visit us right away so that we can conduct an examination, identify the source of the problem and provide treatment.
HELP IS AVAILABLE
It is important for people to realize that it is possible to treat foot pain. Taking ibuprofen at home can be temporarily helpful but will not solve the problem because all it does is mask the symptoms, primarily swelling and pain. In our office, we look far beyond the symptoms to determine the source of the issue. The help we provide is focused on long-term healing and restored mobility. While we will always treat the patient's immediate pain and discomfort, this is not our ultimate goal. We want to heal our patients so they require constantly taking medication.
There are a variety of treatment options that can help with foot pain and instability. Most of them are noninvasive. For example, we may recommend:
- Arch supports
- Custom orthotics
If necessary, we have the ability to perform surgery to address foot problems as well. This can sometimes be necessary for truly solving the problem.
Treatment options we recommend will be based on the examination and results of various tests.
REASONS TO VISIT OUR PODIATRY OFFICE
We encourage anyone who is looking for long-term relief from foot pain or instability caused by weak feet and ankles to visit our office for help. The main reasons patients come in are:
- Workplace injury. An injury can lead to long-term pain if not treated.
- Severe foot pain. If foot pain is not managed at home, it may be necessary to visit a podiatry office for treatment.
- Cuts or sores on the feet. It is critical that if there is an open wound on the feet, patients seek immediate help. An untreated foot infection can lead to serious health problems and in diabetics, it can even lead to the need for an amputation. Waiting is really not an option in this scenario. It is important to seek help right away.
- Inability to stand or walk for long periods of time. Some people walk through our doors because they can no longer stand or walk long enough to carry out the duties of work or even do things like grocery shop. In this case, we will conduct an examination and determine what is causing these changes.
VISITING A PODIATRY OFFICE IS THE RIGHT CHOICE
We specialize in treating the feet and ankles. Where a general family physician treats all types of conditions and does not specialize in any one thing, we have focused our entire practice on this area. This makes us the right physician to visit for any issues or health problems pertaining to the feet.
