The well-being of your feet is our focus here at East Brunswick Foot & Ankle Center. Unfortunately, by their very nature, your feet are under a great deal of stress and force on a daily basis. This is made even more concerning if you’re overweight or you wear shoes that are not supportive, too tight, or that put your feet into awkward positions, such as with high heels. Fortunately, you can depend on our podiatrist in Highland Park NJ as your specialist so that you can have feet that are free of pain and that allow you to do everything you want to.
Every part of your foot is at risk for injuries, but your heel is more prone than other areas. It takes the brunt of force when you walk, run, and jump. And problems like plantar fasciitis and heel spurs are common. Your feet and ankles can also be subject to a sprain, which affects the ligament; or a fracture, which affects the bone. Sprains are most typical in the ankle than even in the foot itself. Your toes can be impacted by the effects of bunions. In addition to structural problems with your foot, you may develop skin abnormalities, which can include corns and calluses or plantar warts. Foot odor can be frustrating and cause you to feel self-conscious. Again, our podiatrist in Highland Park NJ is here to evaluate and treat it. Even diabetes can harm your feet, by causing neuropathy. Fungus may be responsible for Athlete’s foot and can also affect your toenails. Essentially, if it’s something that is a concern for your feet or ankles, then it is something our podiatrist in Highland Park NJ can address.
When you have a foot problem, don’t hesitate to call our office and schedule an appointment so you can benefit from the experience and expertise of our foot doctor.
