Find Relief from Foot and Ankle Conditions
Life keeps moving, and it doesn’t tend to wait for foot and ankle problems.
When an injury or other condition begins to interfere with your day-to-day activities, it’s always best to address it sooner rather than later. The more promptly a problem is identified, the sooner you can receive the right treatment—and the more likely you are to prevent such problems from coming back in the future.
The Foot, Ankle & Leg Center helps patients with a wide range of podiatric issues. We describe some of our specialties below, but they are far from our full repertoire of services. (If you do not see your needs listed here, please feel free to contact our office.)
Aching heels and arches can stem from a variety of different causes. They are often caused by a mechanical imbalance in the foot. However, they are often highly treatable.
No matter how long you have been living with heel pain, we can help you find solutions that will significantly reduce your discomfort or eliminate it entirely. You might be surprised at what conservative treatments targeted toward the right problems can do.
Diabetic Foot and Wound Care
Our office provides thorough, expert care for diabetic wounds, ulcers and infections.
While we have advanced methods for treating diabetic wounds, helping our patients avoid them in the first place is a much better practice. We work with patients to develop a comprehensive, preventative plan that can include:
- Diabetic, circulatory, and neurological testing
- Comprehensive foot and ankle evaluations
- Diabetic shoes and orthotics
Proper care and attention to your feet can prevent some of the worst complications of diabetes, such as ulcers, infections, gangrene, Charcot foot, and amputations. We’re here to help you every step of the way.
Neuropathy and Nerve Pain
Nerve pain, tingling, and other unwelcome sensations in the feet can be the result of different problems ranging from diabetes to neuromas to pinched nerves.
Dr. Richer is an expert in lower extremity nerve issues, and our office is highly equipped to get to the root of nerve-related foot problems. Once we perform a thorough evaluation, we can recommend the best course of treatment both for relieving your symptoms and maintaining better nerve health through the future.
Sports injuries to the feet and ankles are often the result of sudden impacts or pushing your body beyond what it is conditioned to endure.
You don’t have to be a professional athlete to sustain an injury; in fact, just about anyone can suffer from strains, sprains, stress fractures, tendinitis, or other painful conditions—no matter their level or frequency of activity.
Our practice understands athletes and their goals. We can help you get back to full strength as quickly and as safely as possible, using both traditional, conservative methods and advanced regenerative medicine, when indicated.
Mild cases of ingrown toenails often respond to home remedies such as soaking and antibiotic ointments. However, it’s time to give us a call if your ingrown toenail is:
- Very painful;
- Causing difficulty wearing shoes
- Causing difficulty with walking or other physical activities
- Getting worse and not improving;
- Showing signs of infection (redness, swelling, discharge or pus); and/or
- Constantly coming back.
If any of those apply to you, we can help!
