We have experienced podiatrists to treat disorders in your feet and ankles. Our podiatric services benefit your overall health by focusing on preventing, diagnosing, and treating conditions that can make it painful to get around, including plantar fasciitis, bunions and tendinitis. We specialize in managing diabetic foot care as well as foot and ankle arthritis. We also offer podopediatrics, which focuses on caring for children’s and young adults’ feet and ankles.
Tight shoes, foot trauma, and arthritis can cause your big toe to push against your next toe. This can eventually force the joint of your big toe to grow larger and stick out. This bony bump is called a bunion. Our podiatrists work with you to ease the pain and discomfort caused by bunions. Treatment options include pain medications, foot supports (orthotics), steroid injections, and sometimes surgery to treat the condition.
Diabetic Foot Care
If you are managing diabetes, you are more susceptible than others to a range of foot problems that aren’t always easy to notice. We help you with preventive monitoring, maintenance of your skin and nails, and treatment of corns and calluses, plus advice on avoiding burns and other damage that may occur due to foot insensitivity caused by diabetes.
If you notice stabbing pain on the bottom of your heel, particularly in the morning, you might have plantar fasciitis. This condition occurs when the band of tissue that supports the arch of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (called the plantar fascia) becomes inflamed. We can work with you to ease your pain and help you recover. Treatment options include shoe inserts, steroid injections, and surgery.
The Park Medical Group has podiatrists who specialize in diagnosing and treating pediatric ankle and foot conditions, including ingrown toenails, pediatric plantar warts, flat foot, crossover toes, and intoed gait.
Tendinitis occurs when the tendons that connect your muscles to your bones becomes inflamed. It typically causes a recurring pain and can happen in your foot, leg, and ankle. Cold therapy may help initial symptoms, and longer-term rehabilitation can help you recover fully.
