Arch pain
 
Experiencing inflammation or burning sensation at the arch of your foot? Most common forms of arch pain can be relieved with proper footwear (including inserts) or even custom-made made orthodics is the pain is persistent. 
 
Diabetes and ulcers
 
Diabetics often experience loss of nerve function, which can lead to common foot problems such as foot ulcers, swelling, sores and even deep infections and fractions. If you are a diabetic experiencing pain or tingling in your foot, seek treatment immediately!
 
Geriatric care
 
Eldery patients who suffer from arthritis, among other conditions, offen experience difficulty walking. Even standing can be uncomfortable. Geriatric podiatrics can reduce the inflammation and relieve the pressure on foot joints by prescribing orthotic footwear and insolves that will make mobility easier.
 
Neuromas
 
If you are experiencing pain in the ball of your foot, numbness between toes or any discomfort after jogging, you may have a nerve inflammation known as neuroma. Often we can recommend shoe inserts or foam pads to correct the problem, along with anti-inflammatory medication. If pain persists, surgery may be required.
 
Warts
 
If a wart on your foot is causing you pain or discomfort when you walk, it may be removed by freezing or buring. Warts can also be removed surgically.
 

Bone Spurs
 
Escessive and persistent heel pain may be the cause of a bone spur, which is growth located at the point where foot muscles attach to the pone. If you suffer from chronic heel pain, the surgical removal of this bone spur may be required.
 
Flat feet
 
Flatfeet occur when there is an absence of an arch. This is common among children, but may continue into adulthood. If your feel tire easily or become painful during physical activity, consider arch supports for your shoes. In the case of persisent pain or discomfort, surgery may be required.
 
Hammertoes
 
If you are experiencing pressure on toe tendons and joints, you could have hammertoes. Hammertoes often involve painful motion of one or more toe joints, Treatment might include padding, taping toes, anti-inflammatory drugs and cortisone injections. Surgery may be required if your foot mobility contines to be severly restricted.
 
Pediatric conditions
 
In some cases, such as flat feet, children will outgrow common foot conditions, but early deformities may cause chronic pain and hinder mobility well into adulthood. Pediatric podiatry can correct potential persistent problems with specialized footwear and, in extreme cases, surgery.

Bunions
 
If you are experiencing pain, redness, swelling, numbness or difficulty walking, you may have a bunion, a bump on the side of your foot next to your big toe. Non-surgical treatments, such as custom orthotics, may be able to solve the problem. If you are in extreme pain, we can also perform surgery to correct the shape of your foot.
 
Foot/Ankle sprains
 
Sprained ankles are the most common athletic injury, often occurring when the ankle buckles and turns inwards, injuring the outer ligaments. Athletes are advised remove weight from the ankle immediately and apply ice. Further treatment may require rehabilitation. With proper care, you can resume physical activity after six weeks.
 
Heel pain
 
If you experience sharp pain or stiffness on the bottom of the heel, in the morning especially (or after prolonged inactivity), you may be suffering from inflamed heels. In most cases, anti-inflammatory medication, orthopedics and therapy can relieve the problem, but it is important to seek treatment before the problem is further aggravated.
 
Plantar Fasciitis
 
A common condition among middle-aged people, plantar fasciitis affects the ligament that connects your heel to your toes. When the ligament is strained, it can lead to pain, stiffness and swelling. Anti-flammatory medication, therapy and proper footwear are often the most effective treatments.
 

Corns
 
Concentrated areas of hard skin, either rubbery or callous, are known as corns and can appear between the toes or on the bottom of the foot. Corns can become quite painful, so it is important to lessen the pressure on the skin with proper footwear. Additional treatments include powder to reduce sweat on the foot, removing skin with pumice stones, or using inserts or foam wedges in shoes.
 
Fractures
 
Ankle and foot fractures are common among athletes, often characterized by severe pain, difficulty walking and swelling at the site of the fracture. Non-surgical treatment methods may include casts and specialized braces. All fractures must be treated immediately and monitored closely, so treatment will be customized per patient.
 
Ingrown and fungal toenails
 
Ingrown toenails occur when the nail grows into the skin of the toe, causing redness, swelling and often pain. Without treatment, fungal infections can occur. Treatment can include oral antibiotics and, in extreme cases, surgery.
 
Sports medicine
 
Athletes commonly experience foot and ankle pain, some more serious then others. When problems persist, it is imperative to seek sports medicine therapy or treatment to relieve a problem before it worsens. Sports medicine can involve rehabilitation therapy, cortisone shots and footwear prescription.
