Ask the Podiatrist: Are My Feet Healthy?

As a podiatrist, we're always striving to keep your feet healthy.  Many times we see patients who believe their feet are far healthier than they actually are, because we all take our feet for granted and chalk little things up to aging or just normal foot pain.  The bottom line is: foot pain is NOT normal, and if you're experiencing it then your feet aren't healthy.

If you answered YES to any of the above, you need to see a podiatrist!  The symptoms listed above range from mild to concerning, and something as simple as hair loss on your toes can reflect a much larger issue like PAD (peripheral arterial disease).  Your feet are your foundation, and should be supporting your pain-free for your entire life, and with regular checkups at a podiatric office you can rest assured that they will!
