When your feet are in pain, or you are suffering with other symptoms, from protrusions to infections, you can benefit most by working with us at Central Florida Foot and Ankle Center. Our Winston podiatrist is a foot specialist, and is much more qualified to diagnose, evaluate, and treat conditions and ailments of the foot and ankle than a general practitioner is.
Your feet take a lot of abuse. That’s true even if you just walk to and from the train station and around the office at work, but it’s even more so if you’re athletic in any way. And while shoes can provide support and comfort, the reality is that there is only so much they can do, even if they are the proper ones for you; ones that fit well and are roomy enough. If they’re not, you’re at even greater risk. Our Winston podiatrist addresses common conditions such as ankle sprains, heel pain, bunions, calluses, corns, hammertoes, and flat feet. Other foot problems may be complications of other diseases. Examples include the effects of diabetes and arthritis. Fungus loves nothing more than a moist environment, and your feet are highly prone. This can mean athlete’s foot or fungal toenails. Speaking of toenails, ingrown ones can cause severe pain and result in infections. Warts are both unsightly and unhealthy. Treatment options vary, of course, based on the condition that is being addressed. However, our Winston podiatrist makes excellent use of orthotics to add needed cushioning and/or to redistribute your weight so that stress is not put on specific joints. Funguses respond well to medication. Surgery is sometimes required, and can include treatment for achilles tendons and hammertoes.
