Heel Pain/Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis is the most common cause of Heel and Foot Pain and often results in pain during weight-bearing. It is important to seek care at the onset of pain in order to identify and address the primary cause rather than waiting for it to become worse.
A Bunion is a bump on the inside aspect of the big toe joint. It is usually caused by a misalignment of the bones in this part of the foot.
An ingrown toenail occurs when one or both corners of the toenail dig(s) painfully into the fleshy part of the toe or nail groove, often leading to pain, redness, swelling, and sometimes infection when bacteria starts to grow within the injured skin caused by the ingrowing corner. There are several causes of ingrown nail including: improper nail trimming, heredity, poor-fitting shoegear, trauma, and fungal infection of the nail. Bottom-line, ingrown toenails can be debilitating. If this is you, let us help you put an end to this suffering. Give us a call today!
Are you tired of your toes hurting? Hammertoes are one of the most common causes of toe pain. A hammertoe is a bending or contracture of the toe joint which causes the toe to appear like an upside-down ‘V’. Often times, activity and shoe gear can irritate the affected toe resulting in redness, swelling, and pain. They are more common in females and can be quite painful and debilitating, making it hard for those affected by it to wear certain shoe gear or participate in certain activities. Sometimes if left untreated, ulcers or wounds can develop- resulting in infection. If this is you, do not hesitate to give us a call today and begin your journey to recovery.
Plantar Warts are one of several skin conditions of the foot that can be quite painful. They are caused by a virus and can appear anywhere on the skin. Those that appear on the sole of the foot are called plantar warts. It is more common in children, especially teenagers. Warts thrive in warm, moist environments. If left untreated, they can grow in size and spread into several warts. They can be spread by touching, scratching. Most warts are harmless, despite being painful. It is wise to see profession care if one suspects having a plantar wart. If this is you, do not hesitate to contact our office today.
