We love it when people are getting out and staying active with sports of all types, because they have so many benefits for young and old alike. Football, tennis, soccer and other competitive games keep you fit, provide a social network, and help you develop skills and self-confidence. However, they also bring with them a risk of sports injuries.
If you injure yourself while playing, come to the experts. We use the latest diagnostic tools to pinpoint exactly what went wrong: fracture, sprain, bruises and contusions, tendon and ligament damage, and more. Then we use conservative methods and the latest technology to treat the damaged tissues—including analysis of your biomechanics, custom orthotics, physical therapy, K-laser and shockwave therapy, to name a few.
Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions in the USA, and often its effects are felt in the feet. As podiatrists, we understand better than most what can happen when diabetes’ sidekicks—poor circulation and neuropathy—play havoc with your lower limbs. We offer treatment for any conditions that develop in your feet and ankles because of diabetes, including the latest vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) wound care for foot ulcers.
If yellowed, thick, or crumbly toenails are your issue, we have the answer. We can prescribe traditional antifungal medications, but our advanced laser therapy targets and kills the fungus underneath the nail so new, healthy nails can grow out. It’s quick, painless, and has no known side effects, so set up your first treatment today and say good-bye to toenail fungus.
We would all prefer that our kids have healthy feet that develop normally through their childhood and teen years, but sometimes that doesn’t happen. Flat feet, heel pain from Sever’s disease, and gait problems like in-toeing are fairly common, but we also see and treat rarer issues like clubfoot or Freiburg’s disease. When your kids complain of sore feet or heels, or hesitate to stay active, give us a call so we can figure out what’s wrong and find the best remedy for it.
