Podiatry Q & A

What is Podiatry?

Podiatry deals with issues of the feet, ankles, and lower legs. You may underestimate how important these structures are, but they act as shock absorbers, weight bearers, and propulsion engines for walking, running, and other important daily activities.

The podiatry team at Prominis Medical Services can evaluate your foot and gait health. They reset broken bones, order labs and X-rays, prescribe medications, and help with the general function of your feet. People with health conditions that result in poor circulation, such as people with diabetes, benefit from regular visits to the podiatrist to ensure their feet remain healthy and functional.

When Should I See a Podiatrist?

Men, women, or children with symptoms associated with their feet, ankles, or lower legs may benefit from specialized podiatric care. Issues that suggest you need a podiatry consult include:

  • Foot or ankle pain
  • Thick or discolored toenails
  • Cracks or cuts in your skin
  • Growths like warts
  • Scaling on peeling on your soles

The podiatry team at Prominis Medical Services sees patients of all ages for their foot-related health concerns.

What Types of Conditions Do Podiatrists Treat?

Podiatrists address many foot-related conditions, including:

  • Fractures and sprains
  • Nail disorders, including ingrown nails and fungus
  • Diabetes
  • Bunions and hammertoes
  • Osteo- or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Foot-related nerve problems, such as Morton’s neuroma

Your podiatrist may offer physical therapy, inserts and braces, medications, and other interventions to heal your pain or dysfunction. They may remove bothersome warts and calluses using cryotherapy or a scalpel.

What Should I Expect During a Podiatric Consult?

The podiatrist at Prominis Medical Services reviews your medical history and discusses your symptoms with you. They will evaluate your stance, posture, and the way you walk (your gait). An assessment of your joints, including your ankle and toes, as well as your shoe fit is also part of your visit.

Depending on your particular complaints, they may check for bunions, ingrown toenails, fungus, and foot deformity.

Your feet undergo a lot of stress in your lifetime. Keep them as healthy as possible with regular visits to the podiatry team at Prominis Medical Services. Make your appointment today by calling a nearby location or book using the online tool.
