You may not think of them this way, but feet are incredibly complex mechanisms! In addition to containing a quarter of all the bones in your body, they feature a complicated network of tendons, ligaments, joints, nerves, blood vessels, and more.
At Family Foot Care & Surgery, we specialize in comprehensive treatment for almost any foot or ankle problem you may have, from skin and nail issues to heel pain, nerve pain, wound care, and more.
Read on to learn more about some of the conditions we regularly treat at our offices in Milford and Hamden, CT.
Arch and Ball of Foot Pain
Just as with heel pain, pain in the arches and balls of the feet can have many different underlying factors and causes. Whether you’re experiencing a dull ache or feel like you’re constantly stepping on a pebble, we can help you diagnose and eliminate the issue.
- Morton’s neuroma
- Plantar fibromas
Skin and Nail Conditions
Skin and nail problems are often frustrating for cosmetic reasons—after all, everyone wants their feet and toes to look good! However, they can also cause a lot of physical pain and discomfort. Worse, some conditions can spread, or even develop dangerous infections.
Never be shy about asking us for help with a skin or nail issue. We are happy to help! We also have advanced remedies available for some conditions, including laser therapy for fungal nails and Swift microwave therapy for warts.
Although children can develop many of the same problems that adults can, like warts and ingrown toenails, they also face unique challenges. During a child’s formative years, it’s important that foot and ankle problems are addressed promptly so they do not continue to cause problems into adulthood.
Our doctors love working with kids and work hard to make the entire experience as welcoming and comforting as possible.
- Sever’s disease
- Plantar warts
- In-toeing and out-toeing
- Pediatric flatfoot
- Gait abnormalities
Foot and Toe Deformities
Each foot is unique. But while certain variations in a foot’s shape or structure are normal and expected, severe deformities are always a cause for concern.
Foot deformities do not get better with time. But if you seek help early, we can often help you reduce or eliminate pain, maintain your activity levels, and slow the rate or progression. And if conservative treatments do not help, we also provide advanced and effective surgical reconstruction options.
- Hallux rigidus / turf toe
- Flat feet
- Tailor’s bunion
Foot and Ankle Injuries
Whether you hurt yourself due to long hours at work, a tumble on the sports field, or any other reason, we are here to help you address and correct the source of the problem. This includes both traumatic injuries (like ankle sprains) and overuse injuries that slowly develop into chronic aches and pains.
- Ankle sprains
- Achilles tendinitis
- Extensor tendinitis
- Peroneal tendinitis
- Overstretched muscles and tendons
- Stress fractures
- Shin splints
Diabetes-Related Foot Problems
Diabetes poses particular challenges for the health of foot and ankles. Not only does it greatly increase your risk of developing certain conditions, but it also makes many “ordinary” injuries and accidents considerably more dangerous.
We take excellent care of our patients with diabetes, so that they can maintain healthy feet and active lifestyles for as long as possible.
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Peripheral artery disease
- Balance problems
- Charcot foot
- Diabetic foot ulcers
