Reasons to see a podiatrist

25% of the bones of the body are in the feet. There are 26 bones in the foot that must last a lifetime. Any pain in your feet or ankles is not normal.

Pain in your feet may be due to:

  • Heel spurs
  • Joint pain from arthritis
  • Any burning, numbness or tingling may be due to signs of diabetes, pinched nerves or neuroma.
  • Discoloration of the toenails from fungus
  • Pain along nail borders due to ingrown toenails
  • Slowly healing wounds, discoloration or dryness to the feet from diabetes or athletes foot
  • Swelling due to poor circulation or infection

Most systemic problems such as diabetes and cardio problems manifest locally within the feet.

Most sports medicine problems require R.I.C.E. (Rest Ice Compression Elevation)

Many of these problems can be treated with strappings, injections, immobilization and orthotic devices.
