There’s a lot going on in the world now and it’s easy to forget what we are thankful for as we reflect on this Thanksgiving. Our Los Alamos, NM, podiatrist is most thankful for you, your business and your trust as we work with you to make your feet as healthy and comfortable as possible. We understand that you have a lot of options when it comes to you and your family’s podiatry needs, and we value our relationship with you as we work together.
People of all ages suffer from some kind of foot pain, whether athletes, avid couch potatoes, or people everywhere in between. Our Los Alamos, NM, podiatrist treats many different problems that can cause foot discomfort.
Take bunions, for example. Despite sounding like something you might buy in a bakery, they form as bumps on the side of the big toe and can be very painful. They are also among the many things that we can treat or remove.
Foot pain can be very common in women after years of wearing high heels and ill-fitting shoes. Women are also susceptible to stress fractures from frequently walking without socks that might help absorb stress on the feet. Men are not immune to foot pain, either. Plantar fasciitis, bursitis, and tendinitis are just a few of the myriad other foot issues we can help address for you.
According to our Los Alamos, NM, podiatrist, pre-packaged shoe inserts work fine for a little additional foot support, but custom molded orthotics for your shoes can help solve many foot issues. These include but are not limited to plantar fasciitis, bursitis, diabetic ulcers and heel, ankle or foot pain. We can help you get the best orthotics to increase your foot comfort.
There are always new advances in treatment, and we pride ourselves on staying on top of the latest in podiatry technology. We can use shockwave therapy as a non-invasive treatment for plantar fasciitis and chronic Achilles tendinitis. Treatments last less than 10 minutes and do not require any anesthesia! We also use diagnostic ultrasound and digital x-rays to more precisely detect issues with your feet so we can offer the best treatment.
You have so many things to be thankful for on this holiday, and among them is that you or your family members are on the way to having complete confidence in your feet! We are honored and thankful that you chose us to take this journey with you. Our Los Alamos, NM, podiatrist looks forward to seeing you again soon!
Happy Thanksgiving from our Los Alamos podiatrist!
P.S. – After you finish your turkey, please remember to get up and stretch. And please enjoy your post-dinner walk without having worry about the health and comfort of your feet. That’s our job!
