What Does a Foot Doctor Treat?

If you're not sure what foot doctors treat and why it's important to see one of our podiatrists regularly, schedule your consultation today.

What Foot Doctors Treat

A foot doctor treats every problem associated with your feet and ankles. If you have foot pain, diabetic foot issues, nerve damage or abnormal growths, foot doctors (also known as podiatrists) diagnose and treat these problems. Additionally, a podiatrist can address the underlying conditions causing foot and ankle problems. Here is a partial list of other conditions podiatrists treat:

  • Ingrown toenails, calluses, hammertoes, bunions
  • Athlete's foot
  • Heel spurs
  • Flat feet and fallen arches
  • Sprains and strains
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Heel pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Diabetic and peripheral neuropathy

Some people don't think it's important to regularly see a podiatrist. Unfortunately, these same people try to treat problems with their feet themselves, or they don't think the issues pose a significant threat to their overall health.

However, problems with your feet could be a signal that you're suffering from a major medical issue, such as diabetes, arthritis or peripheral arterial disease.

Foot problems may also be the result of your thyroid not working properly. This gland produces critical hormones, and the associated issues of it not working properly often result in problems with the sensation in your feet. Additionally, if degenerative changes in your back occur, it can affect the nerves delivered by your spinal cord and result in problems with your feet.
