Your foot health can be a clue to your overall health. For example, joint stiffness could mean arthritis. Tingling or numbness could be a sign of diabetes. Swelling might indicate kidney disease, heart disease or high blood pressure. Good foot care and regular foot checks are an important part of your overall health. If you suffer from pain or poor foot health, our podiatrist can help!

WHAT IS A PODIATRIST?

A podiatrist is a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM), also known as a podiatric physician or surgeon. Podiatrists diagnose and treat conditions of the foot, ankle and related structures of the leg.

Containing more than 100 bones, tendons, muscles and ligaments and forming 33 joints, our feet and ankles play a major role in how we can (or can't) move. A mild sprain or strain or even a broken toe can cause pain, limit our movement or possibly cause further injury in other parts of the body.

From bunions and heel problems to fractures and sprains, Orthopedic Associates' fellowship-trained surgeons offer surgical techniques and non-surgical treatments for adults and children to eliminate or relieve many of these problems.

Trust our team of foot and ankle specialists to help you get back on your feet!

Tips for Healthy Feet:
