Understanding Foot and Ankle Health
Capital District Podiatry has a reputation in the local communities for providing first-class care and effective treatment for our patients. In addition to state-of-the-art treatment techniques, we also take pride in providing you with the information you need to understand what is entailed with having healthy feet and ankles. This information can help you make the right choices in knowing when to seek treatment and how to avoid developing problems in the first place.
To make it easier for you, we have prepared a book—Tiptoe Your Way to Happy Feet: A User’s Guide to Understanding Foot and Ankle Health—that breaks down and answers questions like:
- What causes foot pain? We look at several different issues that cause problems, including heel pain, sports injuries, toe deformities, and skin and nail. Unfortunately, there are many potential sources of foot pain, but the good news is that early treatment is often highly effective for a full recovery.
- What can a podiatrist do about foot pain? Given the many different causes of pain for feet and ankles, it only makes sense that there are an array of treatment methods that we can use to restore your foot and ankle health. Surgical procedures are sometimes necessary, but many conditions can be handled with conservative care, like the use of custom orthotics, medications, or padding.
- What can you do about foot pain? Even better than knowing that we can help is understanding that there are techniques you can use at home for certain conditions. Additionally, many preventative measures are rather simple and greatly reduce the risk of injury.
This handy reference tool is a great way to understand why you are experiencing pain with the first steps of the day, what the difference is between a heel spur and heel bursitis, and what kind of new technologies exist for helping heels that are in pain.
We know that educated patients are able to make the best possible decisions when it comes to their own foot and ankle health.
