Common Foot Problems
Problems and conditions affecting the feet can be related to injury, disease and genetic deformities. We offer diagnosis and treatment for foot problems with the goal of stabilizing the affected area and restoring health and mobility. Common foot problems can include:
- Bunions, hammertoes
- Skin problems such as peeling or cracking feet
- Toe problems
- Foot pain
- Ingrown toenails
- Achilles problems, achilles tendonitis
- Heel pain
The sooner a foot problem is diagnosed and treated the more likely we can offer conservative treatment options. If you are diabetic and have concerns about the health of your feet we offer consultative, personalized care for limb salvage. Our goal is to help you maintain mobility and comfort for as long as possible while you are managing your overall health and treatment for diabetes.
Common Ankle Problems
The ankles can be prone to tendon sprains and fracture for active patients, athletes, and patients who have health conditions such as osteoporosis. The ankle is a hinge joint that consists of several bones, tendons, and ligaments all of which need to function in harmony for maximum mobility and comfort when walking. It functions in tandem with other subtalar joints (part of the feet) to allow full range of motion in all directions.
We treat ankle problems and injuries with a range of procedures and therapies. Common ankle problems can include:
- Ankle sprains
- Osteoarthritis, arthritis
- Ankle swelling
If you experience trauma to the ankle, difficulty when walking, joint pain or weakness in the joint it is important to have one of our podiatrists evaluate the joint and determine if treatment is necessary. In the event of an injury, prompt treatment is important for the best possible result and to avoid further damage to tissues due to prolonged swelling.
Newtown Foot and Ankle Specialists provide comprehensive care for patients with chronic conditions affecting mobility and the health of their feet and ankles, including sports injuries. Our professional doctors and staff are committed to the health and personal goals of our patients and provide a caring environment for addressing your concerns and receiving the care that you need.
