Laser Treatment for Fungal Nails
If you have thick and unsightly nails, you may have a fungal infection. Nail salons, locker rooms, and even your own garden are some of the places where tiny fungi (dermatophytes) penetrate the skin under your nail plate. The infection can spread to other toes, including the toes of people around you.
If a fungal infection is left untreated, your nails will get worse. Conventional treatment, home remedies, OTC topical medications from you pharmacy, and "miracle cures" are unlikely to eliminate the fungus. Our laser treatment, in combination with preventive measures, helps you win the battle against fungus for clear nails.
Heel Pain or Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain in adults. The plantar fascia is a thick band of fibrous connective tissue that attaches the heel bone and courses across the bottom of the foot before fanning out to connect to the base of each toe. Inflammation of the plantar fascia, typically by overuse, is a painful and potentially debilitating condition.
Diabetic Foot Care
Diabetes can cause a decreased feeling in the feet, allowing cuts and scrapes to go unnoticed. It can also cause decreased circulation to the feet, resulting in a reduced blood supply that may be insufficient to fight infection and heal wounds. You can reduce these risks by following simple principles of foot care and seeing your podiatrist regularly.
The big toe is the hardest-working toe because it supports most of your body weight when you push off to your next step. If it's misaligned or enlarged, a bunion can form and change the shape of your foot. You don't have to deal with bunion pain because it can be treated conservatively or surgically at our office.
A neuroma is a painful growth of nerve tissue in the foot. It forms when the bones in your feet press together and irritate a nerve. The cause is normally tight or poorly fitting shoes or repeated stress on your foot.
Injury or foot deformity can also cause a neuroma. As the neuroma gets worse, it causes pain and keeps you from enjoying many activities. Fortunately, we offer many treatments for relief from a neuroma.
