APRIL IS NATIONAL FOOT HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH:

This time of year everybody is on their feet more.

Keep the following in mind, and if you have any questions about your feet, don't hesitate to contact your local Nashville Podiatrist!

Ingrown Toenails

People that fiddle with pesky ingrown toenails can worsen their condition leading to bacterial and fungal infection.

A quick, minor in-office surgical procedure can relieve the pain and prevent infections:

  • Local block of affected toe
  • Sterile equipment
  • Consideration for aesthetics
  • Postoperative follow up

Plantar Fasciitis

This is one of the most common podiatric conditions, and if it's left untreated, this can actually result in weight gain and time missed from work:

  • Proper education in daily foot care
  • In-office treatment with heel injections
  • Outpatient surgical procedures

Bunions / Hammertoes / Metatarsal Pain

Patients plagued with painful bony malformations seek podiatric treatment to help with both the appearance and the pain associated with daily activities and difficulties finding comfortable shoe gear:

  • In-office palliative treatment to relieve pain from corns and callouses
  • Custom made orthotics and shoe gear to accommodate deformities
  • Outpatient surgical procedures to correct deformities

Diabetes and Arthritis

Systemic conditions can lead to foot diseases that result in life threatening loss of limb and immobility:

  • Early detection and regular podiatric care can keep patients feet in healthy shape throughout a lifetime of systemic conditions.
