- Disease Diabetes - Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease that affects the lives of nearly 24 million people in the United States.
Diabetic Wound Care - Diabetes is the leading cause of nontraumatic lower extremity amputations in the United States. Additional information is available from the American Diabetes Association.
High Blood Pressure - It's important to let your podiatrist know about high blood pressure.
Peripheral Arterial Disease - PAD is short for peripheral arterial disease. PAD is caused by a blockage or narrowing of the arteries in the legs when fatty deposits called plaque build up.
Peripheral Neuropathy - Peripheral neuropathy is damage of the peripheral nerves—the nerves in your toes and fingertips. In the United States, the most common cause of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes.
- Foot & Ankle Injuries
- Sprains, Strains and Fractures - The feet and ankles work together to provide support and mobility to the body. A foot or ankle sprain is a soft tissue injury. A fracture is actually a break in the bone.
- Muscle & Tendon Problems
- Haglund’s Deformity - Haglund's Deformity is a bony enlargement of the back of the heel bone. Sometimes it's called “pump bump” because the deformity often occurs in women who wears pumps.
Heel Pain - Heel pain has many causes. it is generally the result of faulty biomechanics (walking gait abnormalities) that place too much stress on the heel bone and the soft tissues that attach to it. The stress may also result from injury, or a bruise incurred while walking, running, or jumping on hard surfaces; wearing poorly constructed footwear; or being overweight.
Tendinitis - Tendinitis is the inflammation of a tendon. Achilles tendinitis, or an inflammation of the Achilles tendon, is one of the most common causes of foot or ankle pain.
- Skin Disorders
- Athlete’s Foot - Athlete's foot is a skin disease caused by a fungus, usually occurring between the toes.
Corns and Calluses - Corns and calluses are areas of thickened skin that develop to protect that area from irritation. They are usually caused by rubbing or excess pressure against part of the foot.
Psoriasis - Psoriasis is caused by faster-than-normal turnover of skin cells. In people who have psoriasis, the new cells move to the surface so rapidly that the dead cells build up on the surface in dry, whitish-silver patches.
Skin Cancers of the Feet - We often view the sun's harmful rays as the primary cause of skin cancer, but this does not hold true of cancers that arise on the skin of the feet. A podiatrist's knowledge and training is of extreme importance for patients for the early detection of both benign and malignant skin tumors.
Sweaty Feet - Excessive sweating of the feet is called hyperhidrosis. People whose feet sweat excessively often also have problems with excessive sweating of the palms.
Warts - Warts are one of several soft tissue conditions of the foot that can be quite painful. They are caused by a virus and can appear anywhere on the skin.
- Toe Joint & Nerve Disorders
- Bunions - A bunion is an enlargement of the joint at the base of the big toe that forms when the bone or tissue at the big toe joint moves out of place.
Hammertoes - A hammertoe is a contracture - or bending - of the toe at the first joint of the digit, called the proximal interphalangeal joint.
Neuromas - A neuroma is a painful condition, also referred to as a "pinched nerve" or a nerve tumor. It is a benign growth of nerve tissue frequently found between the third and fourth toes that brings on pain, a burning sensation, tingling, or numbness between the toes and in the ball of the foot.
- Toenail Problems
- Ingrown Toenails - Ingrown toenails, the most common nail impairment, are nails whose corners or sides dig painfully into the soft tissue of nail grooves, often leading to irritation, redness, and swelling.
Toenail Fungus - Toenail fungus is an infection underneath the surface of the nail caused by fungi. The disease is characterized by a progressive change in a toenail's quality and color.
- Shoe Inserts and Prescription Custom Orthotics - Shoe inserts are any kind of non-prescription foot support designed to be worn inside a shoe. Custom orthotics are specially-made devices designed to support and comfort your feet.
Surgery - Often when pain or deformity persists, surgery may be appropriate to alleviate discomfort or to restore the function of your foot.
