At Central Arkansas Foot Care, we treat a wide array of podiatric conditions on a regular basis. If we were to list them all, you would be here for a while, so instead we will give you snapshot of some of the more common ones we see.
As your child develops, you are sure to be aware of any condition that doesn’t seem right. We are your allies in ensuring that your son or daughter will be just fine in the long run. Some of the common issues that you may observe, or hear about, include flatfoot, Sever’s disease, intoeing, and hyperhidrosis. We will diagnosis any pediatric foot condition and provide the gentle care and treatment your child needs.
When you, or a loved one, lives with diabetes, your foot health is incredibly important. With the neuropathy and poor circulation that often accompany the disease, it is easy not to notice when something is wrong, plus your body has a diminished capacity to take care of itself. Well, we are here to help you understand how to take care of your feet and know what issues to look for in your daily foot check. If you are living with this disease, schedule an appointment today so we can help you avoid serious complications.
If you wake in the morning with sharp pain in your heel, you likely have a condition known as plantar fasciitis. This is one of the many heel issues that we see and treat here at Central Arkansas Foot Care. Plantar fasciitis is a common overuse injury to the fibrous band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot. There are other heel issues you may experience, like a heel spur, bursitis, stress fracture, and others. When you have heel pain, make sure you come in and see us for a proper diagnosis.
Ingrown toenails is a common condition that happens when the corner or side of a toenail begins to grow into the soft skin on the side of the nail. This can be annoying for otherwise healthy individuals, but it creates a potentially dangerous situation for those who live with diabetes.
The Achilles tendon can become inflamed and painful when it is subjected to the repetitive stress that comes with trying to do too much, too soon, in a workout program. The severe pain that comes the day after exercising can be avoided with preventative measures like stretching, wearing proper shoes, and strengthening your calf muscles.
Bunions, and the related bunionettes, are the result of toes being forced into a direction they are not intended to go. When the big toe is pushed inwards towards the second toe, the bones that make up the metatarsophalangeal joint become misaligned and a bony protrusion emerges on the side of your foot. A bunionette is a similar condition, but only on the other side of the foot.
Brittle, thickened, discolored nails are the signs of fungal toenails. No one wants to think about fungus growing in their body, but this condition affects millions. Fortunately, we can help you get the clear, healthy nails you want.
