Common Questions:

What is a Podiatrist?

A podiatrist, also called a doctor of podiatric medicine, is a specialist who provides medical diagnosis and treatment of foot and ankle problems.

What is foot pain?

The foot is made up of 28 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles, and numerous tendons. Complex biomechanics keep all these in the right position and moving together. Given these intricacies, it is not surprising that most people will experience some problem with their feet at some point in their lives.

How do I know if I should call a podiatrist?

  • If you have been injured and have pain, swelling, numbness, weakness, redness, or an inability to put weight on your foot or ankle.

  • You have persistent or recurrent pain for more than 2 weeks, or pain that doesn't respond to over the counter remedies.

  • Change in the color, temperature, or appearance on your feet, skin, or toenails.

  • You have blisters or a rash on your foot or feet.

  • Your skin is cracked, scaling, peeling, or bleeding.

  • You have any signs of infection: pain, swelling, redness or red streaks on your foot or leg, drainage, increased heat, pus, elevated body temperature of a 100 degrees or more.

  • Painful, ingrown or discolored nails.

  • Any abnormal bump, lump or growth.

  • Any mole, open sore or skin abnormality that changes color, shape, size, cracks, bleeds, or otherwise is unusual.
