BOYNTON BEACH PODIATRISTS CAN DIAGNOSE AND TREAT FOOT & ANKLE PROBLEMS
Foot and Ankle pain can be debilitating. Many patients say, “when your foot hurts, your whole-body hurts!” This is true because every step causes pain that alters the way you walk, which causes aches and pains throughout your body.
There are many causes for foot pain, such as pain in the arch, heel, toes, ankle etc. The pain could be related to acute injuries, such as a car accident or twisted ankle, or the result of overuse injuries, such as arch pain or plantar fasciitis. There are 28 bones in the foot alone, and many more muscles, ligaments, nerves, tendons and joints. All of these structures can be injured causing tendonitis in the foot or ankle, neuritis, neuropathy, sprains, strains, fractures or broken bones or arthritis in addition to lacerations, skin lesions, and the list goes on!
OUR PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY
Therefore, when looking for a foot specialist in Boynton Beach, it is important to visit a foot and ankle clinic which specializes in the care of only the foot, ankle and lower leg. Treatment of the foot and ankle is a highly specialized area of medicine. Therefore, one should seek out a Board-Certified Podiatrist trained in foot and ankle surgery in order to be appropriately treated.
Foot and Ankle Orthopedic Surgeons also treat foot and ankle injuries, but they do not have the amount of training which is focused on the foot and ankle that surgically trained Podiatrists have. Only those who can demonstrate proficiency in the most complex treatment of foot, ankle and lower leg pathology, in addition to typical foot conditions, are awarded Certification in Reconstructive Rearfoot and Ankle Surgery. One should accept nothing less than the best and seek out a foot doctor with this type of certification.
