When thinking about your health, feet may not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, studies have shown that the majority of Americans suffer from foot discomfort of some kind.
Usually people don’t realize how important foot health is until they start showing symptoms that indicate something may be wrong.
This may come about as heel pain, pressure on the arches, or ankle discomfort. Suddenly, it becomes difficult to do simple yet vital things, like standing or walking.
Yes, these issues may go away with time by merely applying ice to the pained area, resting, and/or opting for more supportive and comfortable footwear. But these symptoms may persist or even get worse.
That is when you should start to consider reaching out to a foot and ankle specialist, i.e.: podiatrist.
Nip It in the Bud
The good news is that here at Lakes Foot and Ankle Associates, we can help you not only prevent, but also treat and correct most – if not all – foot and ankle related conditions you may be experiencing.
Indeed, we are your one-stop, all-inclusive podiatric practice.
As already mentioned, if caught early, conservative treatments (non-surgical) may be enough to correct whatever type of issue you are having. Some of our treatment options include:
- Padding and taping
- Shoe changes
- Oral and/or topical medication
- Laser therapy, etc.
However, in the event that you and your podiatrist decide surgery to be the best option for treatment, we also provide office-based surgeries which are minimally invasive and even allow the patient to walk immediately.
These surgeries are meant to be less challenging to your daily living and significantly more cost effective. So, if that is the route you end up taking – no worries! – here at Lakes Foot and Ankle Associates, we aim for your comfort, from your toes to your pocket.
