If you are experiencing foot problems due to athletic activities, you will want to come to our Burrell Podiatry Clinic where our doctors treat problems of the feet with sports medicine. Our two expert foot doctors are Dr. Lisa J. Watters and Dr. Gregory J. Saperstein. When you need a foot doctor who can provide you with Lower Burrell sports medicine, you can do no better than to come to our podiatry practice.
Both of our expert podiatrists are Board Certified with the American Board of Podiatric Orthopedics and Primary Podiatric Medicine. Our foot doctors treat a wide range of foot problems related to sports-related activities. Some of the most common problems are blisters, corns, calluses, achilles tendinitis, athlete’s foot and heel pain. Our doctor will be able to provide you with information about Lower Burrell Sports Medicine including preventive measures you can use which include proper foot hygiene. When it comes to avoiding some types of athletic foot problems it is very important to keep your feet dry and to always wear clean socks. It is also important that your shoes fit properly to make sure that they do not overstrain your legs, ankles and feet.
If you seem to develop repeated aches and pains in the same areas of your feet, you should definitely make an appointment to come in and see one of our podiatrists so that you do not cause permanent damage to the affected area. One way that our podiatrist is able to help our patient who needs treatment with Lower Burrell sports medicine is to prescribe custom orthotics. Orthotics are customized shoe inserts. They can be used to treat many different types of painful foot conditions including plantar fasciitis, neuromas, heel spurs and flat feet. An orthotic will help your feet by making slight corrections in order to fix abnormal walking patterns. Orthotics will slightly alter the angle at which your foot will hit a surface that you are walking or running on. Our podiatrist is also able to treat fungal infections of the foot and toenails including athlete’s foot. Heel pain is often caused by overuse of the foot. Heel pain can be aggravated by wearing shoes that do not correctly support your feet, or by running on hard surfaces. A sudden turning of the heel can also cause this type of pain.
