Heel pain is a very common complaint and if you have tried some home remedies for it and are still in pain, your podiatrist can diagnose the cause and provide the help you need to get back to being able to walk comfortably. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain with Achilles tendonitis issues close behind. Several therapies are available to help with the pain.
Ingrown toenails can be very painful because when they grow into the flesh of your foot they can become infected. They need to be cared for at home to keep them from growing into the toe, but if this is hard for you to maintain, your podiatrist can clip your toenails for you and if necessary, remove the offending toenail.
Diabetes is a much more complex disease than just controlling your sugar level. Other parts of your body, including your feet, can be affected by diabetes. When blood sugar levels are high, the nerves in the feet can be damaged. This causes a lack of sensation, which can be dangerous if your food gets injured. If you can't feel pain, you might not notice that you have an injury and a serious infection can result. Loss of toes, the entire foot, and even the leg can be the result. Good diabetic foot care begins at home but belongs in a podiatrist office in Manassas & Reston, Va.
Flat feet are common in infants and toddlers but usually, they resolve themselves. For some people, flat feet are not a problem, but for others, they result in pain. If you have pain with your flat feet, you need to get some help and your podiatrist is the one to see. Some treatments to help with flat feet include custom orthotics, a specially designed exercise plan, footwear that supports your feet, and pain medication. If all of these methods fail, surgery is an option.
