Podiatric and Orthopedic Care

As Podiatrists we are like the family practitioner of the lower extremity. We treat all types of lower leg and foot injuries and conditions with varied methods. We use all traditional and holistic treatments that compliment each other to get the patient back on track as quickly as possible. This may include utilizing x-rays, and other diagnostic modalities along with aggressive but conservative treatments.  When necessary surgical intervention can be instituted.

Podiatric and Lower Extremity Orthopedic conditions treated

Biomechanical Conditions: we can evaluate, examine and mechanically measure the foot,. This will allow us to correct for  proper alignment, as the dysfunctional foot can cause many lower extremity conditions in the foot, knee, hip and lower back that we treat on a daily basis.

Overuse Conditions: our active patients, athletes, or patients that are on their feet for work, can sustain overuse conditions. If an injury is left untreated, the condition typically will worsen and turn into a chronic issue, which is more difficult to treat quickly. Patients may compensate with their gait and cause other lower extremity complaints as well.

Traumatic and Acute Conditions: Occasionally patients will suffer an injury that will cause a fracture or twist of a foot or ankle. Swift and proper evaluation with a thorough exam and possible X-rays is imperative to proper healing and speedy recovery.
