Don’t Let Your Problems Drag On
Your enjoyment of life and all it has to offer can be seriously disrupted by foot and ankle conditions. Yet too many people wait to see a foot and ankle specialist, hoping their pain will go away on its own. Unfortunately, this waiting can allow your condition to worsen, becoming something much more serious than it would have been with earlier treatment.
An estimated 25,000 people experience an ankle sprain each day, making this injury one of the most common. Anyone of any age can sprain an ankle, whether playing sports or just walking on an uneven surface. Since a sprain can be more serious than you first think, you need a doctor to diagnose this injury.
If you suffer from bunions, you know how painful they can become. These bony enlargements, usually occurring at the base of the big toe, can cause the big toe to turn inward towards the other toes. Whether caused by genetics, arthritis or years of ill-fitting shoes, bunions can be treated successfully.
The condition known as flat feet, sometimes also called “fallen arches”, is a common problem. Although usually painless, this condition can cause problems with your knees and ankles. If your flat feet are causing you pain, you should have this condition checked out.
When the toe is permanently bent in a claw-like position, it is called hammertoe. Usually appearing in the second toe, hammertoe is often caused by ill-fitting shoes. This condition can and should be treated by a podiatrist as early on as possible to avoid surgery.
Diabetes and Your Feet
One complication of diabetes is a tendency to foot problems. Diabetics can be afflicted with diabetic neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease, two serious conditions. Also, when a diabetic acquires one of the more common foot problems like athlete’s foot or bunions, they are more likely to become infected and/or lead to serious complications.
When a hook of bone forms on the heel bone, it is called a heel spur. This condition is sometimes linked with plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the tissue in the arch of the foot. Heel spurs can be painful, but there are many successful treatments.
Caused by pressure or rubbing on the skin, corns are usually formed when shoes fit improperly. While very annoying, corns can be treated very successfully. Seeing a podiatrist should be the first step to relief.
Also called “tinea pedis”, athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that commonly appears between the toes and sometimes on other parts of the feet. It causes an itching, stinging sensation and is contagious. See a doctor if your condition doesn’t improve or gets worse.
