Here’s How Our Richardson Foot and Ankle Doctors Can Help You
Richardson Podiatry Center provides comprehensive foot and ankle care for conditions ranging from dull, nagging pain and toenail issues to serious traumatic injuries and diabetic conditions. It is important to keep in mind that foot pain and dysfunction is never normal. Pain is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong and needs to be addressed.
Educated patients are best able to make the right choices when it comes to their health care. With that in mind, we have a collection of pages covering various injuries and conditions you might experience. Please feel free to browse through our service areas and learn more about what we offer here at Richardson Podiatry Center:
Ingrown toenails can cause pain, make wearing your normal footwear difficult, and increase your risk for potential infection. Even the slightest pressure on the area can cause a stabbing pain that will not go away until the problem is properly addressed. The only way to find the relief you need is through ingrown toenail treatment. For difficult cases, be sure to contact our Richardson, Texas office and we will be happy to help you schedule an appointment.
Biomechanics refers to the way your body moves. Your feet and ankles have many parts—bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments—which means they can move in numerous ways. When any of the motions your feet undergo (especially when walking) are abnormal, they can be the root cause for pain and difficulty. Richardson Podiatry Center can help by conducting a gait analysis and prescribing custom orthotics (when necessary).
Feet undergo a tremendous amount of development between birth and adolescence. During this time, there are certain conditions and issues that may develop. It is important to inspect your child’s feet periodically and always ensure he or she is wearing shoes that fit correctly.
Diabetes affects the body in many different ways. On account of its connection to issues like heart attacks, strokes, and blindness, it’s easy to overlook how the disease affects your lower limbs. Ignoring your feet, even accidentally, can cause or exacerbate issues like Charcot foot, diabetic ulcers, PAD, and diabetic neuropathy. A robust diabetic foot care plan—we can help you create one—is essential for protecting your feet and preventing serious issues from arising.
Heel pain is extremely common, yet often dismissed as being “not a big deal.” This is a mistake because continuing to use your feet normally when you have issues like plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendinitis can lead to bigger problems down the road. Fortunately, Dr. Reister is often able to address the root cause of these problems without needing surgical intervention. Even better, many cases can be prevented with some simple measures.
There are many problems that develop inside your feet and ankles, but some problems exist on the surface level. This doesn’t mean they are less important, though! Conditions like plantar warts, ulcers, ingrown toenails, and fungal infections come with a host of undesirable symptoms. Learn more about these issues and then be sure to contact us when you need professional care.
Physical activity is an important part of health and fitness that many people, unfortunately, let fall by the wayside too often. Those who commit themselves, however, can achieve a plethora of rewards with regards to the way they feel and look. With any physical activity, however, there is going to be a certain degree of injury risk. This is especially true in the lower limbs, and a wise approach to any workout or training program is guarding yourself against these kinds of sports injuries.
When it comes to something as important as having surgery, you want to put your feet and ankles in the hands of experienced surgeons. Learn more about the types of foot and ankle surgeries we provide and how we help you get a comfortable surgery with a short recovery time.
