Our podiatrists are experts in molded high tech, functional custom orthotics that can relieve pain and correct the mechanical function of your feet.
Orthotics are medical devices that go into ones shoes that are designed to give arch support and control the function of your feet. Foot pain is often due to poor foot support and stability. Orthotics are often used with firm shoes and stretching to provide relief.
A bunion is a bump that appears inside the foot, near the big toe. Bunions form when the toe moves out of place. The bump is a bone protruding towards the inside of the big foot. If untreated, bunions can cause sever pain and even hinder walking abilities.
Ankle Pain - Sprain
Ankle pain may be caused from an unnatural twisting or force on the ankle or bones, or may be due to a ankle sprain. The ankle pain may cause redness, swelling, stiffness and warmth in the affected area. Other possible problems can include arthritis, or tendinitis.
We offer a selection of diabetic shoes that are stylish and comfortable in a variety of colors and styles just like a fashionable normal shoe. We have styles ranging from diabetic work boots, to fancy dress shoes and casual walking shoes.
Ingrown toenails most commonly occur on the big toe and are caused by pressure that drives the edge of the nail into the surrounding skin. Ingrown toenails can result from improper nail trimming, injuries, or fungal infections and can be very painful.
The biggest single cause of heel pain in most adults is plantar fasciitis; inflammation of the connective tissue. In each foot, you have a fibrous band of connective tissue known as the plantar fascia, which starts at the heel and runs across the arch to the base of your toes.
