Foot Care Q & A

Why is foot care important?

Foot care encompasses a range of activities, from daily care at home to the vast array of problems that require expert treatment at Westchester Podiatric Healing Medicine.

Though many patients only visit a foot specialist when pain or problems develop, the Westchester Podiatric Healing Medicine team also focuses on preventive care.

Yearly foot care appointments are essential if you have diabetes, peripheral artery disease, or a history of foot problems. But even if you have healthy feet, routine foot checkups allow the Westchester Podiatric Healing Medicine team to detect changes and provide early treatment that prevents progressive problems.

What symptoms indicate I need foot care?

Your feet sustain an incredible amount of pressure and stress. If you keep walking and moving despite having mild or occasional pain, minor foot problems can quickly progress to serious injuries that stop you from staying active.

Signs you should seek podiatric care include:

  • Pain that’s severe or doesn’t improve
  • Difficulty walking
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Foot deformity
  • Non-healing wounds
  • Foot pain after standing
  • Symptoms of a sprain or fracture

Sprains and fractures cause similar symptoms, including pain, swelling, bruising, and being unable to put weight on the foot.

What conditions require foot care?

The experienced Westchester Podiatric Healing Medicine providers treat the full scope of foot conditions, including:

  • Corns and calluses
  • Ankle sprains

  • Plantar warts
  • Flat feet
  • Heel spurs

  • Morton’s neuroma

Comprehensive foot care is available in their comfortable office, where all your treatments are provided by expert podiatrists.

What foot care treatments might I need?

Your foot care begins with a complete exam and in-office diagnostics like digital X-rays and ultrasound that allow your provider to precisely diagnose the problem.

Though you may need basic care, such as immobilization with a walking boot or cast and temporarily changing your activities, and exercises, the team provides today’s most advanced treatments, including:

  • Customized orthotics
  • Wound care
  • Shockwave therapy
  • MLS® (multiwave locked system) lasers by Cutting Edge
