You can’t perform at your best if your feet hurt. That’s for sure. Professional athletes can use every advantage possible to gain an edge, but so can amateurs and you weekend warriors. At New York Podiatry Care, we are dedicated to helping you to have strong, healthy feet and ankles so that you will play at your peak.

What are the most common reasons for seeking out our Long Beach sports medicine? Among them are corns, calluses, athlete’s foot, achilles tendonitis, and heel pain. Your feet can take quite a beating when you’re playing. Our goal is to diagnose and treat what you’re experiencing right now, and to help you avoid the same problem in the future. Direct treatment is important and necessary, of course, but expert advice and guidance is also a big part of our Long Beach sports medicine. Let our foot doctor help you to select the footwear that will be appropriate in providing the support and roominess you need to avoid injuries, growths, and other concerns. Corns and calluses form as the result of friction. Athlete’s foot is contacted from a fungal infection, and is easily transmitted from person to person, so be careful when touching other people’s towels and clothes, and wear shower shoes or other protective footwear when walking in communal showers or locker rooms. As for achilles tendonitis and heel pain (from either plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, or both), supportive shoes are a must for avoiding them. And orthotics are both a treatment and a preventive measure to consider. Of course, you can depend on expert diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment which may range from topical and oral medications to physical therapy and even surgery.

Call our office and set up your visit so that you can benefit from our Long Beach sports medicine.

There are plenty of different things that can affect the overall health and well-being of your feet overtime. Since many of us are on our feet constantly, whether we are simply running errands or even if we have a particularly physically demanding job, it is important that we take care of our feet every single day. In order to do this, it is helpful to examine your feet from time to time and to pay attention to any symptoms that you may be experiencing on a daily or regular basis. You may notice that certain things you take for granted or tend to ignore may have developed into something that needs to be treated, such as bunions or hammertoes. Here at our 11561 podiatrist office, New York Podiatry Care, our podiatrist can help when it comes to diagnosing such issues as well as treating them.

Bunions and hammertoes are two common deformities that affect people’s feet on a fairly regular basis. Though there is no one cause for either condition, there are some things that may put you at risk for developing these issues. Some deformities are at least somewhat genetically influenced, but other factors may come in as well, such as the type of shoes that you choose to wear on a regular basis as well as how often and how long you are on your feet throughout the day. Even injuries can affect the development of such deformities, but the most important part is to make sure that you know what the symptoms are and that you have them treated sooner rather than later. In general, bunions and hammertoes start off as relatively mild conditions that tend to get worse the longer they go untreated. Mild bunions and hammertoes may be treated with the use of simple shoe inserts, orthotic devices, or even a simple change in footwear. More severe cases however may require surgery. Both conditions involve issues with the joints in your feet. Bunions are deformities that occur when the joint of your big toe begins to drift outward. This not only widens your foot but it also causes your big toe to point inward instead of laying straight and parallel with your other toes. Hammer toes are problems that affect your smaller toes, and cause the toe to curl or resemble the shape of a hammer, hence the name. Here at or 11516 podiatry office, New York Podiatry Care, our podiatrist can help diagnose either condition, as well as provide you with the treatment you need.

As stated earlier, the sooner bunions or hammer toes are treated the easier your treatment will be. The longer such conditions go untreated, the more severe they may become. Not only that but they may cause more pain and discomfort as well. Here at our 11516 podiatrist office New York Podiatry Care we can provide you with the foot care and treatment that you need.
