With over 100 years of combined foot care know-how under our belts, the podiatrists at Aadvanced Footcare Associates have seen just about every type of problem you could have with your feet. That expertise is just what you want to look for when you have foot pain. We’ve treated everything from Achilles bursitis to warts. We offer specialized, complementary, modern medicine to help you find the best remedies for your foot conditions.
Getting Hurt While Playing
One area we specialize in is sports injuries. Whether they are acute injuries like fractures, sprains, or Achilles tendon ruptures, overuse injuries such as plantar fasciitis, peroneal tendonitis, or shin splints, or just common problems like blisters, corns and calluses, we will get at the root of your discomfort. Part of that is analyzing your biomechanics and your footwear—many times getting the right shoes or being fitted for custom orthotics can go a long way toward helping you heal. Our goal is to get you back to your sport as soon as possible, without risking further injury or long-term problems.
Foot Trouble from Diabetes
We also are experts in diabetic foot care. We know what to be on the lookout for: peripheral neuropathy, circulation problems, and diabetic skin problems are some of the main complications of this disease, and they often show up first in your feet and legs. If you have developed an ulcer, we offer excellent wound care to keep your feet as healthy as possible, and can give you tips for ways to keep you ahead of the game.
Other complications from diabetes include Charcot foot (collapse of your arch), gangrene (tissue death from infections), and tingling feet. While you must work to control your sugar level and practice safe foot care habits, we can help when something happens despite your precautions.
Kids Welcome Too!
Some foot conditions are noticed first in childhood, and they can cause some consternation. When you are worried about things like in-toeing and out-toeing or flat feet, or your child complains of heel pain during their growing years (which could be due to Sever’s disease), know that we would love to take a look at them to ease your mind or identify problems that should be dealt with while they are young. Club foot is one such condition; it needs immediate treatment so walking will not be hampered.
From Simple Remedies to Surgery
We always try conservative methods of treatment first, and reserve surgery for severe cases that limit your activity, or when other remedies have not taken care of your pain. If rest, ice, pain relievers, and physical therapy have a chance of working, we’ll try those. If not, there is a whole range of advanced therapy we can try. In the end, if you must have surgery, we will be there every step of the way to make you as comfortable and worry-free as possible while maintaining the highest surgical standards.
