Foot First Podiatry, CLPC
Did you know that more than 1/4 of the bones in your entire body are located in your feet? Proper foot care is essential to a healthy lifestyle, and in most cases, good foot care begins with good toe care.
Untreated ingrown toenails can be dangerous
Ingrown toenails occur when your toenails grow into the flesh of your toes. Not only are ingrown toenails incredibly painful, but they can also become infected. Leaving ingrown toenails untreated can be very dangerous since the infection may eventually go into the bone of your toes.
You’ll get solutions to your hammertoes
Hammertoes are caused from a hereditary muscle imbalance causing your toes to buckle and bend permanently. Hammertoes can tend to cause painful corns to develop on the tops or sides of your toes. We offer several treatments to reduce the painful symptoms and straighten the toes.
While bunions are painful and inconvenient, they usually do not present a significant health risk. Our office can easily correct them to restore your mobility and help you walk properly once more.
Our team at Foot First Podiatry, CLPC, offers several surgical and non-surgical solutions to your
Let our podiatrist provide you with comforting solutions to your toe ailments:
Bunions occur when the first metatarsal bone starts drifting outward because the muscle is not strong enough to hold its position. This changes the alignment of your big toe joint, causing the big toe to curve toward the second toe. With your toe out of position, inflammation occurs in the big toe joint. This process is not always noticeable—in fact, many bunions form without causing you any pain whatsoever.
Arthritic bunions are caused when arthritis forms in the big toe joint. This limits the range of motion of your joints and prevents your big toe from bending properly while you walk. Tailor's bunions (also known as bunionettes) are formed in similar conditions as regular bunions. The difference between the two is that tailor bunions occur on the outside of the foot at the fifth metatarso-phalangeal joint.
