Podiatry is the medical specialty area that focuses on your feet and ankles. It encompasses all aspects of your foot health and function, including skin and toenail infections, orthopedic issues like arthritis and flat feet, and injuries.

The podiatrists at Foot Healers provide a comprehensive range of services to address all of your foot and ankle needs from specialized foot care to diagnosing and treating foot diseases.
Taking care of your feet, including your skin and toenails, is critical to your overall health. Your foot doctor can help you keep your toenails trimmed and healthy and protect your skin from calluses and corns.
If you have a disease like diabetes, foot care is even more important because you have an increased risk of developing foot ulcers and dangerous complications. Your foot doctor provides wound care when necessary to protect your feet.
The foot doctors also diagnose and treat foot problems, including:
The team provides customized treatment plans, including medication, orthotics, or surgery, to heal these conditions and restore the proper function of your feet and ankles.
The team at Foot Healers also provides sports medicine services. In addition to diagnosing and treating common sports injuries like sprained ankles, your foot doctor can also analyze your gait — the way your foot moves when you walk or run.
Your podiatrist can help you correct any abnormalities that increase your risk of injury or interfere with your performance. They might prescribe orthotics or recommend physical therapy.
You should never ignore foot pain. When left untreated, painful foot issues can lead to various complications. Pain can change the way you walk, leading to additional injuries and pain throughout your body. Small wounds can turn into ulcers and become infected.
If you have foot pain, contact the team at Foot Healers for expert diagnosis and patient-focused care. Call any of the five offices or book an appointment online today.
