The Podiatrist and You

Tuesday, 20 July 2021 00:00

Many people endure foot and ankle injuries, pain, biomechanical problems, deformities, infections, and damage from systemic conditions that affect the lower limbs, but are hesitant to talk to their primary care doctors about it, thinking that an aching heel or a bunion has no bearing to their overall health. This is patently untrue. The feet are the foundation of the body, supporting its weight and carrying you throughout your daily life. If you have any foot or ankle problems, you should not suffer in silence. Instead, schedule an appointment with a podiatrist. Podiatrists are foot and ankle specialists who diagnose, treat, and assist patients in managing a huge variety of foot and ankle conditions. These include fractures, sprains, plantar fasciitis, bunions, hammertoes, diabetic neuropathy and foot ulcers, ingrown toenails, and much more.
