Podiatry Q & A

What is podiatry?

Podiatry is an area of medical practice focused on addressing foot and ankle health. Your feet and ankles represent just a small fraction of your total body mass, but perform a vast array of tasks each and every day. 

Not only do your feet and ankles play critical roles in mobility, they do so while under the weight of the rest of your body. The dynamic movements required to walk, climb steps, sit, and stand each day place considerable strain on the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, blood vessels, and nerves of your feet and ankles. 

Podiatric care is here to help when something goes wrong with any of these important components. 

What are some common podiatry issues?

Podiatry care meets the needs of all kinds of foot and ankle problems. Some of the issues that bring people in for care include:

  • Fractures
  • Tendon or ligament injuries
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoe
  • Sprains or strains
  • Heel pain
  • Nerve pain
  • Arthritis
  • Flat foot
  • Overuse injuries

These are just a few of the foot and ankle conditions treated at HealthyU Clinics. People with diabetes also require special foot care. Diabetes affects your circulation and nerve function, so avoiding foot injuries and treating issues promptly is important. 

When should I come in for podiatry care?

It’s important to schedule a podiatry care visit as soon as you notice a problem. While everyone experiences sore feet from time to time, significant pain or discomfort that lingers over time should be evaluated by a professional. 

Many foot and ankle health issues won’t resolve themselves without treatment. Delaying care can make matters worse, leading to the need for more advanced treatment once symptoms can no longer be ignored. 

Foot and ankle issues can also prevent you from engaging in a healthy level of physical activity. A sedentary lifestyle can create numerous other health problems within a relatively short period of time. 

HealthyU Clinics offer both surgical and non-surgical treatment options. Advanced diagnostic tools determine the source of your symptoms, and practitioners discuss all available treatment options to help you make an informed decision about your care. 

Booking a visit is as easy as a quick phone call or a few moments on the online scheduling page. Make today the day you move one step closer to healthy, pain-free feet and ankles.
