The Common Foot Disorders Treated by a Podiatrist

Estimated read time 2 min read

Welcome to the world of podiatry, where the foot meets the road – quite literally. In our daily hustle and bustle, we often neglect the very part of us that keeps us moving. A foot has more than just five toes and a heel. It’s a complex machinery that, when damaged, can disrupt your entire life. At Ledesma Foot and Ankle, we see and treat a wide range of foot disorders. Today, we’re delving into the most common ones.

The Usual Suspects

Imagine stepping out on a beautiful morning. The birds are singing – then you wince in pain. We’ve seen many patients who start their day like this. The major culprits? Bunions, plantar fasciitis, and Achilles tendinitis.

  • Bunions are painful humps that form at the base of your big toe. They happen when your big toe starts leaning towards the others.
  • Plantar Fasciitis can feel like stepping on a needle. It’s inflammation of the tissue running across the bottom of your foot.
  • Achilles Tendinitis makes you feel pain along the back of your leg, just above your heel. It’s a common injury among runners.

Don’t Ignore the Warning Signs

These conditions don’t just appear out of nowhere. They come with warning signs. A dull ache in your foot. A sharp pain when you take your first steps in the morning. A discomfort when you’re running or walking. Ignoring these signs can lead to severe damage that may even require surgery.

Why a Podiatrist?

These problems might sound simple, but treating them is not. You can’t just slap a band-aid on them. They need professional attention. A podiatrist understands the intricacies of your feet. They can diagnose the problem accurately and provide the right treatment.
