When you walk, is it with a spring in your step or with tentativeness or pain? Whether due to a chronic condition, ailment, disease, or injury, if one or both of your feet are not in good shape, it can have a negative impact on your entire life. At the podiatry practice of Donald J. Adamov, DPM a wide range of essential services are offered, for both adults and kids for the purpose of promoting strong, healthy feet.
Toes can be affected by pressure from various sources, including poor fitting footwear, with the results being bunions or hammertoes. A bunion is a bony protrusion typically forming on your big toe, which due to swelling can cause you serious discomfort. A hammertoe occurs when any of your toes becomes stuck in the bent position. Along with toes, the heel of your foot is particularly prone to problems, like heel spurs in which calcium deposits lead to pain on the underside of your foot. Our Shady Hills podiatrist diagnoses and treats these and other problems. Often, the simplicity and effectiveness of foot orthotics, inserts that fit inside your shoes, is enough to relieve such conditions. Some of the other common issues that you may come in for are ankle sprains, corns, and athlete’s foot, a fungal infection that results in itchy, blistery, red skin on the foot and between the toes. And because diabetes can have a serious impact on your feet, our Shady Hills podiatrist recommends regular visits to assess the condition of your feet. We also have state-of-the-art technology in the detection of peripheral artery disease (PAD), and special orthotics made to prevent falling in those with poor balance. Add to that our Little Steps orthotics for kids, and you can easily see the high level of care we provide.
