Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the diagnosis, medical, and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity. Our podiatrist in Roselle, IL at Medinah Spine Rehabilitation and Podiatry specializes in foot care, foot treatment, and knee pain. Some of the conditions that he treats include but are not limited to:
• Diabetes Care—In a person with diabetes, a wound as small as a blister from wearing a shoe that is too tight can cause a lot of damage. Diabetes decreases blood flow, so injuries causing leg pain are slow to heal.
• Bunions—A bunion is a maligned big toe that becomes swollen and tender, causing the first joint to move out and the second joint to slant toward the other toes.
• Ankle Sprain—Ankle pain and sprains are caused by an unnatural twisting or force on the ankle bones of the foot, often resulting in one or more ligaments on the outside of the ankle to be stretched or torn. If not treated properly, ankle sprains could become a long-term problem.
• Foot Pain—Plantar fasciitis is usually traced to inflammation on the bottom of the foot. Our practice evaluates arch pain and may prescribe custom-made shoe inserts called orthotics to help alleviate the pain.
