Do you have a podiatrist near me?

Issues or disorders that occur as a result of injury, illness, or certain conditions like arthritis and diabetes can be treated by a podiatrist. Some of these conditions include:

  • Minor strains or sprains
  • Minor fractures
  • Fungal infections
  • Bacterial infections
  • Viral infections
  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Lymphedema
  • Warts
  • Ulcers
  • Bunions
  • Discoloration
  • And others

The goals of a podiatrist are to improve a patient’s foot health, functionality, and mobility so he or she can have a healthier, more active, and better lifestyle! Sometimes this means providing continual care for a patient. For instance, our podiatrist here at Tustin Podiatry Clinic offers special services and ongoing care for diabetics because they are at a significant risk for developing serious issues with their feet. A podiatrist like ours is able to treat and even prevent these issues.

What treatments does a podiatrist offer?

Here at Tustin Podiatry Clinic, we’re able to provide our patients with a great number of treatments and services, including the kind of diabetic care we mentioned above. Patients with structural issues or injuries like fractures, sprains, or strains can get the relief they need from our podiatrist. For instance, a brace can help a patient with a structural issue, arthritis, or a fracture. In some cases, the short-term use of a brace will be enough to help a patient, and in other cases, long-term use can provide ongoing support. Sometimes all a patient needs are simple lifestyle and home-care advice. Orthotic inserts can help many patients, including those with flat feet.

A patient with an infection can be treated with a simple topical cream or a prescription oral medication. Foot fungal infections are somewhat common and should be treated with laser treatment that uses simple, harmless light energy. Issues like bunions may require surgery, but before considering that as an option, a podiatrist will try his or her absolute best to treat the issue with the easiest method possible.
