Podiatry Q & A

What can a podiatrist treat?

A podiatrist is a doctor who specializes in all conditions that affect your lower extremities. Your dedicated podiatrist can diagnose and treat:

  • Neuropathy
  • Nail fungus
  • Sports injuries
  • Ankle sprains
  • Plantar warts
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Stress fractures
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Heel and foot pain
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Arthritis, including gout
  • Bunions and hammertoes

Not only do podiatrists perform in-office procedures, but they can also perform more complex surgical procedures at a hospital or surgical center. For instance, if you have a complex foot fracture that requires surgical treatment, a podiatrist is your go-to practitioner.

When should I see a podiatrist?

The top-rated foot and ankle specialists at Apple Podiatry Group encourage you to schedule an exam if you experience any sort of pain, discomfort, or injury that affects your lower legs or feet. It might be time to see a podiatrist if you have:

  • Burning, tingling, or loss of sensation
  • Open or slow-healing foot wounds
  • Pain down the back of your leg
  • Limited range of motion
  • Foot, arch, or heel pain
  • Joint stiffness

It’s also important to see a podiatrist at least once a year for preventive care if you have diabetes, a weakened immune system, or poor circulation.

Apple Podiatry Group has some of the most state-of-the-art equipment available. Your dedicated podiatrist can gather X-rays and ultrasound images right in the office, so they can often diagnose you on the spot.

Which podiatry treatment do I need?

The expert practitioners at Apple Podiatry Group provide the most advanced podiatric treatments available. Depending on your diagnosis, your treatment plan can include:

  • Casting, bracing, or splinting
  • Prescription medications
  • Toenail treatments
  • Wound debridement
  • Topical ointments
  • Custom orthotics
  • Physical therapy

Your podiatrist tries to find the right combination of conservative solutions to resolve your condition.

If needed, though, Apple Podiatry Group practitioners can perform surgery to make any essential repairs. The podiatry team is dedicated to helping you heal and resolve pain through whatever means possible.
