If your car is experiencing trouble, you need to take it to a mechanic.
This automotive professional will establish what is wrong and then correct
the problem using his or her experience, knowledge, and skill. When the
mechanic is done, the care should (that’s a key word…) operate
as intended. In the same way that you would take your car to a trusted
mechanic, you need to bring your own body in to have it fixed with the
help of a medical expert. If the problem is with a foot or ankle, you
need to see a
foot doctor (podiatrist).
There are many foot issues that podiatrists treat. More specifically, you
should see us for:
. When the pain is sharp and intense, it is often a sign of plantar fasciitis,
but there are many other reasons for heel pain. We will find out what
is going wrong and address whatever is affecting you.
Sports injuries. It is difficult to overstate how important staying active is for overall
health. Unfortunately, sports and exercise always come with a certain
degree of injury risk. If you hurt a foot or ankle during physical activity,
we provide effective injury care.
Child foot care.
Sometimes it’s not you who has the foot or ankle condition, but
rather a son or daughter. There are some issues that tend to be more common
for younger patients (intoeing, Sever’s disease, ingrown toenails),
but we provide care for anything out of the ordinary, too.
For those who are not inflicted with the disease, it might seem odd to
see diabetes in this list, but diabetic foot care is an incredibly important
reason to see a foot doctor.
Bunions, hammertoes, and other deformity issues in your lower digits are
typically progressive in nature, which means they will only worsen when
left untreated. If your toes do not line up correctly or cannot lie flat,
schedule an appointment with Houston Foot Specialists and we can prescribe
a treatment plan for you.
We hope you do not experience foot or ankle problems in the first place,
but our Houston, TX foot doctor office is here for you if you do. You
will need to schedule a visit with us if we are to diagnose the root cause
of the problem and provide the effective, professional care you need.
You can reach Houston Foot Specialists by calling (713) 467-8886 and our
staff will help you however we can. Of course, you can also
request your appointment with us online today.
