When Should You Seek Professional Foot Care?
Your feet carry you throughout life every single day, and regardless of your lifestyle any new issue— such as pain, swelling, or irritation— can throw off your routine. Some common signs that you should schedule an appointment with your local foot doctor include:
- Joint pain in your ankles or feet
- Heel pain
- Possibility of a strain, sprain, or broken bone
- Numbness in one or both feet
- Painful bunions
- Athlete’s Foot that won’t go away
- Uncomfortable corns or calluses
- Frequent ingrown toenails
- Sore(s) or blister(s) that won’t heal
- Unexplained bruising or discoloration
People with diabetes should be especially careful when it comes to their foot health. Diabetics can suffer from a vast range of severe foot issues, such as ulcers and gangrene. These types of conditions can result in amputation and serious infections, so it is recommended that patients with diabetes have their feet examined by an experienced podiatrist once a year.
