Your child’s feet grow and change right along with them, making it crucial to be very aware of any pain they have as it can set the stage for future problems.
Too often, the health of the skin and nails is forgotten – but keeping all aspects of the foot and ankle are equally important. We help people with common things such as ingrown toenails, fungal nail infections and many other issues.
Your feet are a pivotal part of your active lifestyle – so when they hurt, it does more than just slow you down. Don’t let foot pain take you out of the game.

This months focus is on Neuroma. Enjoy this brief explanation of what Neuroma (pinched nerve) is and how it can be treated.
Neuroma (pinched nerve) may happen after your foot incurs an injury, is exposed to repetitive stress, foot deformities (bunions, flat feet, high arches), or can be caused from wearing high heels or poor fitting shoes. If you ever feel pain to the toe or ball of your foot, tingling and/or numbness in your toes or ball of your foot or perhaps swelling then you may have Neuroma. The best thing to do is have this treated by a podiatrist who can evaluate your foot and help you come up with a treatment to get you back on your feet. Its also important not to misdiagnose this issue as you want to be sure that its nothing more than neuroma (pinched nerve).
Treatments may be as simple as a pair of better shoes, orthotics (shoe inserts), anti-inflammatory medicine, if need be cortisone injections, and more. Your podiatrist will help you with the best solution.
Set an appointment with your podiatrist, have it properly evaluated and then have a good and effective treatment plan for this or any other foot pain issues you may have.
