Podiatrists aren’t just for people who have bunions. A visit to the foot and ankle specialists isn’t only for surgery. Do you know what makes podiatrists a resource? Many people assume that you only schedule a visit when you have an injury. Podiatrists have the joy of helping people with pain but also helping them prevent conditions.
Dr. Anant Joshi at Advanced Foot Care of NJ, LLC empowers patients to make the best decisions to help them keep walking –– pain-free. One of those ways is by teaching patients the importance of daily foot checks and when to call the podiatrist. Everyone can benefit from checking with a foot and ankle specialist. Whether you need help with prevention or treatment, it’s always best to go to the experts. This group of doctors spent years studying the best way to care for this part of the human body.
See how these three groups can benefit from a visit to the podiatrist:
Can children have foot problems? They can. Little feet are growing and developing fast, and each stage matters. If injuries are left untreated, or problems go unaddressed, there may be future foot problems. One common area to watch is not keeping up with the proper shoe size.
From working 9-5 to recovering from a sports injury during a family basketball game, there are many ways our feet can experience pain. Podiatrists can help with custom orthotics, common sports injuries, heel pain, and other areas. Adults can sometimes assume pain comes along with growth and age. Avoid believing this myth.
Seniors are at increased risk of falling and injuring themselves. Osteoporosis can make these falls even more dangerous. Older patients are also more likely to have foot infections as their immune system weakens over time. They may also have additional health conditions that can impact their foot health. Diabetes and arthritis are examples.
If you’re still wondering how we can help, ask yourself these questions?
- Do I know the cause of my foot and ankle pain?
- Do I need more specialized care for my source of pain?
- Has my pain kept me from doing regular activities?
