Shady Hills Podiatrist
Fortunately, there are many foot conditions and problems that can be addressed and treated effectively without having to resort to surgery. Our Shady Hills podiatrist
, though fully qualified and highly experienced in performing foot surgery, would always prefer to use a non-invasive solution to healing your foot whenever this is possible. And this includes treating foot fractures and injuries.
People who engage in athletic endeavors, including running, team sports, biking, hiking, skating, and any other physical activity are more at risk for foot injuries, but the reality is that anyone can sustain an injury or a foot fracture, especially due to the results of an accident such as tripping over something, falling down, or twisting your foot in an awkward position. This is not exclusive to those who are active. Something heavy may even drop on your foot. It's times like that when you should consult with our Shady Hills podiatrist
, a specialist in providing the very best foot care.
If you think you may have a foot fracture, even if it is only a hairline one, it is advisable to call us right away and schedule an appointment to be examined. You should never ignore a potential fracture, because a hairline split can grow into a full one and make you more susceptible to complications as a result. And the good news is that some, even many, fractures are clean and they will heal without having to be set surgically. In those instances, our Shady Hills podiatrist
will help you to stay of the foot. Typically, you will use crutches or some other assistance device that will allow you to get around without putting pressure on the foot as the bone heals itself. A cast will likely be placed, also, to keep everything secure.
When a foot fracture does need to be set, you can count on our Shady Hills podiatrist
to take care of it safely, expertly, and with as little discomfort as possible. The goal is to support a quick and efficient recovery so that you can walk normally again and engage in all of the activities that you enjoy.
