Flat feet are defined as when the arch, which runs lengthwise across the sole of your foot, is lowered or flattened. It is not always a problem. Some people have 48334 flat feet and suffer no pain or discomfort as a result. But if do, we at Family Footcare, P.C. can help.

You may have flat feet due to genetics. But it is an issue that can affect you even if you don’t have a family history of it. Stroke, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and various foot injuries can cause you to develop 48334 flat feet. There are risk factors, though, that make it more likely for you to end up with this concern. If you have shoes that don’t fit well or don’t provide sufficient support; spend a lot of time walking, running, jumping, or even just standings; or have sustained sudden weight gain, it is not uncommon for flat feet to occur. Among the ways to address the condition is by switching to more supportive shoes, with good arch support, and that are not too tight. You may also consider using orthotics, or shoe inserts. These helpful additions to your shoes can be made from rubber, plastic, leather, or metal. Our podiatrist will recommend the ones that are most appropriate for you. You will have better balance for your feet and the cushion provided by orthotics will keep you more comfortable, reducing the impact from walking, running, jumping, and other activities. Stretching exercises an also be helpful in the treatment of 48334 flat feet. Only if the methods described do not achieve the required results would surgery be considered as an option. In the majority of cases, it is a situation that can be managed non-invasively.

Don’t put up with feet that hurt. You need them for so much in your daily life. Fortunately, our podiatrist has the solutions for you. Call our office and arrange an appointment to come in.

When you are experiencing pain in your foot or ankle, or you have pain there for any reason, it can affect your entire life and that’s no exaggeration. Walking can be difficult or even impossible, and even standing can be excruciating under the most extreme circumstances. When that happens, don’t turn to a general practitioner. You want a specialist and that’s our 48301 podiatrist. Here at Family Footare, P.C., we offer personalized care and the skills and experience that will leave you confident that relief is on the way.

Without a doubt, the most common injury of the foot or ankle is an ankle sprain, in which you twist or turn it the wrong way and injure the ligament. It’s very easy to sprain an ankle. And when you do, you should not dismiss it or shrug it off. It needs attention so that you can heal and get better. First and foremost, it’s vital to ensure that it is actually a sprain and not a strain (as in a tendon or muscle) or a fracture (as in a bone). It is especially important to ascertain that you don’t have a fracture. Even a hairline fracture can turn into a full one if it is ignored. Second, once the sprain has been verified by our 48301 podiatrist, the severity needs to be evaluated. This will help to point in the right direction for treatment.

Treating foot pain and managing foot injuries is often focused on either the heel or the toes. Plantar fasciitis is a common heel injury, in which the tough and thick tissue that connects your heel to your toes becomes irritated or inflamed. This causes pain and can even lead to the formation of heel spurs, further worsening the situation. Hammertoes, in which the middle joint of your toe gets stuck in the bent position, can either be flexible (minimal movement) or rigid (no movement whatsoever). The latter kind will typically need surgical intervention to address it. However, most foot pain, including flexible hammertoes, bunions, corns, and calluses, among others, can be managed with non-invasive treatment form our 48301 podiatrist.
