Just as you would go to see a specialist if you had a heart problem or a skin problem, so too do you want to seek us out at Westchester Podiatric Medicine, P.C., when you have a foot concern. Our Yonkers foot doctor offers diagnosis and treatment of concerns both small and large when it comes to foot care. You can depend on our expertise and experience to be in your corner.
Bunions and hammertoes can be bothersome or very painful, depending on various factors. A bunion is a misaligned joint in the big toe, while hammertoes are deformities of the toe that result in them becoming stuck in a flexed position. Common cause of heel pain include plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the tissue that connects your heel to the rest of your foot; or heel spurs, which are often related to or occur in conjunction with plantar fasciitis. Difficulties related to fungus, including Athlete’s foot, are also handled by our Yonkers foot doctor. Athlete’s foot is highly contagious and you can catch it from going barefoot in public showers or swimming pools, or from contaminated items like towels in a gym locker room. Fungus can also affect your toenails, and can be dangerous if ignored. Ingrown nails, flat feet, and corns are also treated effectively. And anyone with type one or type two diabetes should take advantage of our diabetic foot care to prevent complications that are specific to your feet, including in severe circumstances even the loss of a foot. Ant for advanced treatments like PinPointe FootLaser for fungal toenails and Stortz Shockwave for tendons to address plantar fasciitis, we’re on the cutting edge when it comes to helping you to heal.
Our Yonkers foot doctor is prepared to help you to have healthy feet that are free of pain and other issues. Just call us and schedule an appointment.
