When To See Your Podiatrist In 2021

Your podiatrists in Philadelphia, PA, are here to help you and your feet.

Your feet are a special part of you. They carry you through all of the activities of life, and they take a beating in the process. Fortunately, your podiatrist can help you and your feet feel better. The podiatrists at The Foot & Ankle Group offer comprehensive foot care services. They have several convenient office locations in Philadelphia, PA, and Mount Laurel, Bordentown, and Columbus, NJ.

Your podiatrists are experts in treating issues and conditions involving your feet, toes, and ankles. So when should you see your podiatrist?

  • If you are suffering from chronic pain in your feet or ankles
  • If you notice skin or nail changes on your ankles, feet, or toes
  • If the skin on your feet, ankles, or toes is severely cracked, peeling, or painful
  • If you have blisters or open sores on your feet, ankles, or toes

You should also see your podiatrist in 2021 if you have diabetes because the disease has such a profound effect on your feet. Due to changes in your immune, circulatory, and nervous systems, the slightest injury like a small cut can turn into a large, painful lesion. The stinging pain of diabetic neuropathy is another common foot issue associated with diabetes, and your podiatrist can help with that too.

Your podiatrist can also treat:

  • Plantar fasciitis, caused by inflammation of the band of tissue running across your heel
  • Bunions, which are bony bumps on the side of your big toe
  • Toenail fungus, caused by walking around in moist, warm areas like public pools
  • Ankle or foot fractures, caused by a sports injury or accident

Your podiatrist is an important part of your healthcare team, so pay your podiatrist a visit this year.
