Our goal is to treat your foot problem with the most conservative and cost-effective foot care so you can quickly get back to the activities you love.
Non-Invasive Foot Care
Many foot conditions, infections or injuries can be corrected with physical therapy, cross-training, bracing, changing shoes or medication (over-the-counter or prescription) or self care. We’ll provide a diagnosis for your condition and explain all your options for treatment.
Don’t wait to seek help until your foot problem is serious.
Your feet are made up of dozens of bones, joints, muscles and ligaments that serve as the foundation for your entire body. Through education and conservative care, we can help you prevent sports injuries, musculoskeletal problems and diabetes-related foot diseases that can keep you from enjoying an active lifestyle.
We recommend that you do not use home remedies without first consulting a podiatrist. Self-diagnosing is often inaccurate and the wrong treatment can prolong or aggravate your problem.
Diabetes foot care
If you have diabetes, you may be at risk of developing nerve damage in your feet (known as peripheral neuropathy). When this happens, you may not be able to feel pain caused by tight shoes or sprains. You also may not feel small scrapes, cuts or blisters that can turn into infections.
It is important that you meet with a podiatrist to learn what you can do to prevent future problems. If you already have nerve damage, we can provide treatment and set up routine checkups to monitor your feet for infections.
