We specialize in a full array of podiatric services to help you maintain healthy comfortable feet. Some of our most common services address the following foot/ankle issues:

Achilles Tendinitis: Achilles Tendinitis is an injury to the Achilles tendon. The Achilles Tendon connects the calf muscle to your heel bone. Common symptoms may include pain and tenderness in the heel. Stiffness or swelling may also occur. Please schedule an appointment with us directly if you believe you may be suffering from Achilles Tendinitis.

Ankle Sprain: Ankle sprains are typically caused by an abnormal sudden twist or force on the ankle bone, forcing the joint out of normal position. This can often result in on more ligaments on the outside of the ankle to be stretched or torn. Symptoms include bruising or swelling.

If you believe you have experienced an ankle sprain, please call our office to seek assistance. Until you are able to visit us, here are some common ways to alleviate the sprain:

* Resting and elevating the ankle and applying ice to reduce swelling.
* Compressive bandages also may be used to immobilize and support the injury during healing.

Arthritis: Arthritis is defined as inflammation and swelling of the lining and cartilage of the joints. There are two types of arthritis that are most common and those are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Some of the common symptoms of arthritis are: swelling in the joints, changes to the skin (rashes, ulcers, nodules...), tenderness or recurring pain in a joint, redness or heat in a joint, stiffness in the joint in the early morning and limited mobility of the joint. If you feel you are suffering from any of the above symptoms you should visit your podiatrist for treatment and reduce the effects it can have on your mobility. 

Basic foot Care: Don't ignore foot pain. It is not normal. If you experience any type of persistent pain in the foot or ankle, please contact our office. Inspect your feet regularly and pay attention to changes in color and temperature. Look for thick or discolored nails (a sign of developing fungus) and check for cracks or cuts in the skin. Peeling or scaling on the soles of feet may indicate Athlete's Foot. Any growth on the foot is not considered normal.

Bunion Removal: Bunions form when your big toe angles in toward the second toe. If bunions cause severe pain, removal may be necessary, However, we can also look into nonsurgical treatment methods and prevention care.

Diabetic Feet: Diabetes can, unfortunately, cause two problems that ultimately affect your feet: diabetic neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease. Both can affect your nerves and flow of blood. Upon your visit, we will address both possibilities and create the best plan to alleviate symptoms and promote proper future care.

Toenail Fungus: Nail fungus is a common condition that may be a white or yellow spot under the tip of your nail. As the infection grows, it causes nail discoloration, thickening, and crumbling. If your nail is causing you pain, treatment may be necessary to alleviate pain and return the nail back to normal.

Painful Heels & Arches: Painful heels and arches may be caused by Plantar Fasciitis which is an inflammation of a thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. It may also be caused by Heel Bursitis: an inflammation of the back heel that affects the bursae or the tiny fluid-filled sacs located near the joints in your body. Both will require treatment and proper future care, but upon consultation we will create the best plan for you. Treatments may include physical therapy, shoe inserts, steroid injections, and surgery.
