Podiatry Q & A

What is podiatry?

You have dozens of bones in your feet, in addition to the surrounding ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Because your feet act as shock absorbers and bear the weight of your entire body, they’re particularly susceptible to injury and wear-and-tear.

A podiatrist specializes in foot, ankle, and lower leg health. They can diagnose and treat chronic, pain-causing conditions as well as acute injuries. Podiatrists even have the surgical training to repair bones and soft tissues, so they can care for you from the diagnostic stage all the way through post-op treatment.

Why do I need to see a podiatrist?

Because podiatrists can care for both internal and external lower extremity issues, you have plenty of reasons to build a relationship with a dedicated podiatrist. Some of the issues they can help you with include:

  • Fungal infections
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Bunions and hammertoes

The team of expert practitioners at Associated Podiatrists, P.C. often use advanced imaging to help diagnose the source of your pain and discomfort. This way, your treatment plan is tailored to your specific needs.

What treatments does a podiatrist provide?

After your thorough diagnosis at Associated Podiatrists, P.C., the team covers all of your treatment options.

For skin issues, including athlete’s foot or toenail fungus, you might need prescription-strength topical creams or oral antifungal medications. The team regularly performs minor surgical treatments right in the office for issues like ingrown toenails, corns, and warts. These treatments may involve trimming away the affected skin as well as topical ointments.

If you have a chronic condition, such as arthritis or plantar fasciitis, or an acute soft tissue injury or fracture, your podiatry treatment plan could include:

  • Custom orthotics
  • Physical therapy
  • Cortisone injections
  • Pain medications

Generally, your dedicated podiatrist starts you out with these conservative treatments first. If you’re still not getting relief or if you’re getting worse, you might need surgery. Your practitioner at Associated Podiatrists, P.C. can use minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques to perform most foot, ankle, and lower leg repairs.
