About Podiatry Specialists
A podiatrist is a doctor who specializes in medical care for your feet and ankles. Running, walking and even just standing put a lot of stress on the bones, joints and tissues in your feet and ankles. Everyday wear and tear can cause discomfort, pain and sometimes injury. A podiatrist evaluates the health of your feet and ankles and provides care and treatment that keeps them healthy.
If you are experiencing pain from any of the causes below, make your appointment today with a Doral podiatrist to give your feet and ankles the care they need.
- Deformed toes
- Painful or infected toenails
- Poor blood circulation
- Shoes that are too tight or too loose
- Tiredness from being on your feet
- Work in cold or wet conditions
Podiatrists diagnose and treat these conditions (and others) in your feet and ankles:
- Bone pain
- Corns and callouses (rough lumps and bumps from shoes that rub)
- Deformed toes and foot joints
- Infections caused by bacteria or fungus
- Ingrown toenails
- Sores that won’t heal
- Sprains and strains
- Varicose veins
What to expect when you see a podiatrist:
The podiatrist will look at your medical history and then examine your feet, ankles and lower legs to check for problems with the skin, nails, bones, tissues, feeling, circulation and strength. This specialist also will look for deformities and weakness in muscles. Based on your history and examination, the podiatrist may provide foot care, pads or inserts for your shoes, and treatment for any problems. The podiatrist may refer you to a cardiology, endocrinology, internal medicine, pain management, physical therapy or other specialist for additional care to help heal your feet and ankles.
