A Few Conditions We Treat and Services We Provide
We treat patients like you for many different foot and ankle issues. A few of our areas of expertise include:
Heel Pain/Plantar Fasciitis – Heel pain is quite common. In part, this can be explained by the fact that it has many different potential causes. Treating this issue requires an accurate diagnosis to determine the underlying issue. Plantar fasciitis is the most common heel pain culprit.
Sports Injuries – Sports of all kinds are hard on the feet and ankles. There is a fair amount of risk of both overuse and traumatic injuries from physical activities. The right treatment not only repairs damage and eliminates pain, it also reconditions your limbs to handle the pressures and impacts from your activities.
Running Injury Prevention – Running is a great sport, and one about which our team at Premier Podiatry Group P.C. is particularly passionate. As such, we know all the painful problems that can sideline you from your run. The right care will get you back on the trail and training your best.
Bunions – These are particularly common with middle-aged adults. Years of wearing ill-fitting shoes can contribute to bunion formation. Conservative care can alleviate discomfort and prevent the problem from getting worse. Surgery may be recommended for more severe cases to correct the wayward toe.
Hammertoes – This painful problem in which the toe is abnormally bent can make wearing shoes difficult. Depending on your case, conservative treatments might be enough to straighten out the bent toe.
Skin and Nail Conditions – Having healthy skin and nails is about more than just looking good – it’s about feeling good and being healthy as well. We treat such conditions as athlete’s foot, plantar warts, ingrown and fungal toenails, and more.
Minimally-Invasive Procedures – Some conditions don’t respond to conservative care and need surgery to truly heal. Minimally-invasive procedures are a way of providing the surgical care your foot needs, but without creating a large incision. This helps you recover quickly and get back to your active life. One example is our talotarsal dislocation HyProCure® (see below for more information on this advanced treatment).
Diabetic Foot and Wound Care – The effects of diabetes on feet can result in dangerous wounds. Regular inspections, the right shoes, exercise, and hygiene are all crucial for maintaining your foot health. If you do develop a diabetic wound, you need immediate care to prevent infections and help it heal.
