Ingrown toenails form when the corner or side of a toenail grows and digs into into your flesh. They usually affect the big toe and cause pain, swelling and redness. Ingrown toenails are a common condition that can be treated at home, but if your toe becomes infected or if the pain is too severe, Finger Lakes Podiatry is here to help.
Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis)
Heel pain is most commonly felt on the underside or back of your heel. While it rarely become a serious problem, it can interfere with your day-to-day activities. Constant stress, too much impact as well as footwear that irritates soft tissue areas can cause heel pain. We can apply therapies and recommend products that will help your heel pain.
Plantar warts are hard, grainy growths on the sole or toes of your foot. They are caused by the the human papillomavirus (HPV) and are the most common viral skin infection. Typically found on children, plantar warts can be self-treated or treated with over-the-counter remedies.
A bunion is a bony, painful lump at the base of your big toe. They form due to abnormal pressure or motion on the joint and pushes the big toe towards the others. Tight shoes and arthritis are just some of the causes. Finger Lakes Podiatry is equipped to surgically remove painful bunions. We will also suggest pain medications and help you find properly fitted and padded footwear. Because the shape and structure of your foot is hereditary, bunions can run in the family.
A hammertoe is a condition where your toe doesn’t remain forward but rather is bent or curled downward. They can affect any toe but most often occur on the second toe. If diagnosed early, hammertoes can be corrected with simple measures. However, they can become fixed, painful and make it hard to move, therefore requiring surgery.
Sprained ankles are very common injuries and can happen to anyone during all sorts of activities. This injury occurs when your ankle rolls or twists in an awkward way, causing ligaments to stretch farther than they should. Ankle sprains cause pain and swelling and will affect your mobility. While most can be treated at home, severe sprains will need medical attention.
Flatfoot is a condition in which the arch of your foot is lower than usual and the entire sole touches the ground while you’re standing. Most people don’t experience symptoms with flat feet and they can be helped with orthotics and braces. People can develop flatfoot if their arches don’t fully develop during childhood, following an injury or just from aging.
Gout is a type of arthritis that causes pain and inflammation in joints, often the big toe, due to a buildup of uric acid in your body. Gout attacks usually come without notice and at night. Our staff can help relieve pain during these attacks and advise you on how to prevent them from occurring in the future.
Neuroma is a benign growth of nerve tissues that affects the ball of your foot, occurring between the third and fourth toe. It can be caused by the frequent wear of high heels or tight shoes and symptoms include foot pain, burning, tingling and numbness. If you feel like you are walking on a small pebble, contact our office. We will apply the necessary treatments to prevent any permanent nerve damage.
There are various types of foot fractures that can occur in all parts of your foot. Finger Lakes Podiatry will accurately diagnose the degree of your broken bone and take the most appropriate steps towards a quick and painless recovery.
