If left untreated, chronic foot or ankle problems often cause increasing discomfort and permanent problems. That’s why it’s important to seek treatment from an experienced foot specialist. The Orlando Foot & Ankle Clinic offers solutions for a wide variety of conditions including:
In-grown toenails and fungus: Often, ingrown toenails can be treated in the office by a simple procedure for immediate and lasting results. Discolored or spongy toenails may indicate fungus, an embarrassing, unhealthy, often painful condition.
Heel pain syndrome: Painful lumps can grow behind or under the heel bone. Doctors can relieve the spurs quickly and easily, usually without surgery. Custom orthotics, medication or physical therapy is used to help you walk comfortably again. State-of-the-art endoscopic surgery and non-surgical shock wave therapy is used to successfully treat this problem.
Bunions: These bumps on the side of the big toe can be corrected with the latest techniques. Untreated, they can affect walking and balance, especially in older patients.
Hammertoes: This condition makes the toes curl downward unnaturally while the toe joints tighten. An advanced corrective procedure can straighten the toes, so you can stand and walk without pain.
Corns and calluses: These are usually formed when the shoe comes into contact with the feet, causing friction and irritation. Pain can usually be eliminated in one visit.
Neuromas: Morton’s neuroma is a common foot problem associated with pain, swelling and/or inflammation of a nerve, usually at the ball of the foot, often described as occasional shooting pain out of the toes.
Children’s foot care: Early correction and prevention are the keys to healthy feet. Special programs are available for flat feet, toeing in and toeing out.
Active adult foot care: Sports and an active lifestyle can take a toll on your feet. These stresses require extra attention.
Senior foot care: Years of use can take their toll. As you get older, your feet require extra attention. Conservative treatment approach and compassionate understanding will get you back to your active lifestyle.
Diabetic foot conditions: Every diabetic should visit a podiatrist regularly. Without careful monitoring, even the smallest injury can become critical.
Warts: Warts are a contagious viral infection of the skin. Warts can be treated in office using time-tested procedures for the quickest results possible. Over the years, foot and ankle specialists have helped thousands of people get rid of unsightly warts.
