When do I need to see a podiatrist for foot pain?
Our feet carry the burden of our bodies, so when our feet hurt a great deal or quite often, we need to take proper care of them and see a podiatrist. If we don’t, our bodies can suffer. Our knees, hips, and back can begin to hurt, and at this point, it’s definitely necessary to see a podiatrist. However, it’s best to see one early so he or she can help us prevent further complications. Even if you’re not experiencing any pain, it certainly can’t hurt to see a podiatrist.
Some people have flat feet and although this isn’t necessarily painful or an issue for these people, it can become an issue, so it’s a good idea to get a podiatrist’s perspective on their flat feet. Other people might have foot pain that could be relieved with proper foot orthotics.
What treatments do podiatrists offer?
A podiatrist can do so much for your feet, heels, and ankles. And when these parts of your body are healthy, other parts of your body benefit. You’ll be able to bear weight and balance better which alleviates pressure on your knees, hips, and back, and your posture will improve too.
To accomplish all that, a podiatrist can provide flat-footed patients with orthotics, or injured patients with physical therapy. The podiatrist can also treat deformities and debilitating conditions like arthritis, and even assist patients with multiple sclerosis or diabetes. In fact, many diabetic patients are dependent on their podiatrist’s treatments.
A podiatrist is capable of treating common issues like corns, fungal infections, calluses, bunions, ingrown nails, hammertoe, heel spurs, ankle sprains, and more. But a podiatrist is capable of much more than that. These professionals are also qualified surgeons who can treat serious foot or ankle problems with procedures like arthroscopy, corrective/reconstructive surgery, and even joint replacements. Here at Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists, we are fully capable of providing any common or advanced treatment for foot or ankle problems.
Do I need a podiatrist or an orthopedist?
This is a great question. Both podiatrists and orthopedists have similar professions, but different specializations. When you have issues with your feet, ankles, or heels, then you should seek the assistance of a podiatrist because this type of specialist is an expert in these areas of the body. But if you have issues with your hips or knees, then you’ll benefit from seeing an orthopedist. Many patients benefit from seeing both of these professionals. When you come see us here at Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists, we’ll help you decide whether you could also benefit from seeing an orthopedist, and if so, we will provide you with a referral.
