If you are experiencing painful feet will probably want to pay a visit to see us at our foot care practice, New York Podiatry Care. At our office our podiatrist offers routine foot care to meet all of your foot care needs. Many people go through their daily activities unable to enjoy them due to foot pain. Even a simple walk in the park with your beloved dog can be an experience that is less than joyful. If you would like to be able to once again thoroughly enjoy your everyday activities, come to our Long Beach podiatry office to get rid of your foot pain.
At our Long Beach podiatry office our expert podiatrist is Dr. Sarah Kim. Dr. Kim is able to provide her patients with a wide range of podiatric foot care services. One of the most common services we provide is treatment of ingrown toenails. Ingrown toenails are caused when the toenail grows into the surrounding nail fold. This can become a source of much pain at the site. You may see a lot of swelling or redness as well. There is also a treatment available at our office which will permanently keep the toenail from re-growing into the surrounding tissue. While this is not a particularly serious problem, it can become a serious medical issue for our diabetic patients. We stress that our diabetic patient should come to us on a periodic basis so that their foot health can be regularly evaluated. This is very important because some patients with diabetes have impaired blood circulation in their feet; this means that a simple foot problem can easily turn into a serious medical issue. Having preventive diabetic foot exams is the best way for diabetics to keep their feet healthy and happy!
Many patients suffer from extreme foot pain due to bunions. Other people may have bunions but they never are too bothered by them and the bunions do not develop to a very large size. If you have bunions that are starting to cause foot pain, we strongly suggest that you come in to our office for treatment. Preventive measures can help bunions from developing into a large problem that requires surgery. However, should you want bunion surgery, your bunions can be permanently removed and there will be an end to foot pain. Other treatments that we provide at our office include: fungal nail treatments, hammertoe treatments; cosmetic foot surgery; reconstructive foot surgery; ankle/foot fractures and sprains; pediatric for care; sports medicine care; and providing prescription orthotics.
