Understanding The Symptoms of Podiatry Diseases

What are common symptoms associated with foot problems?

Some common symptoms indicating foot issues are constant pain, swelling, difficulty in walking, numbness, changes in nail color, etc. Podiatrists identify these symptoms and then come up with a diagnosis; they then prescribe medications, orthotic devices, or, in severe cases, surgery.

Does plantar fasciitis or bunions have the same symptoms?

Bunions cause swelling and pain, and you can see a bump on your big toe’s side. While in plantar fasciitis, you can get heel pain, especially in the morning. Over time, it will become painful to walk. To be sure, it is best to consult a podiatrist and early detect the disease.

What are calluses, and how do we identify them?

Calluses are thickened and hardened, and areas appear on the bottom or soles of the feet. They appear flaky, dry, greyish, and waxy. It can be painful, and it becomes unpleasant to wear shoes or walk. Calluses should not be ignored; our podiatrist in New Jersey will remove excess buildup and restore your foot.

What changes in the skin can indicate foot diseases?

When you suffer from podiatric diseases, you can see changes in your skin texture. For example, you can see changes in your nail color, thickening, discoloration, etc.; all these symptoms can be signs of fungal infection. If you see some swelling or redness it could indicate inflammation.

The feet support the entire body, which is why foot health affects a person’s overall health. Suppose you face issues that involve your foot or ankle, such as joint pain, sports injury, numbness, nail fungus, painful calluses or corns, swelling, etc. In that case, it is best to visit a podiatrist, as ignoring these symptoms can lead to chronic pain. A podiatrist in New Jersey treats foot-related issues and recommends ways to avoid them.

Lifestyle modifications include maintaining a healthy weight, following good foot hygiene, washing the feet with soap and water, and wearing properly fitted footwear. Eating healthy and regular exercise helps enhance strength and flexibility and contributes to overall well-being.

Medications used in podiatry treatment are antibiotics for protection against infections, tropical treatments, antifungals for fungal conditions, and pain relievers. Also, a podiatrist can use cortisone injections and strong steroid creams for painful inflammatory conditions such as tendonitis. There are other medicines that are relevant to the practice of podiatry and the care of foot and lower extremity conditions.

When conservative treatments do not offer sufficient relief, and you still feel numbness, tingling, difficulty in walking, etc., a podiatry doctor can perform minimally invasive procedures. These include extracorporeal shockwave therapy for chronic heel pain, cortisone injections for inflammation, laser therapy for fungal nail infections, etc. Our foot doctors in New Jersey are trained to perform surgical intervention.

Our podiatrist in Hackensack New Jersey understands the patient’s history, does physical examinations, and performs various diagnostic tests.

Among other podiatrists whom I have been to, I got the solution for Plantar fasciitis at Advanced Medical Group. The doctors listened to me intentively, watched me walk down the room, and after analyzing, they offered their diagnoses and solutions. I got the solutions that were simple and affordable. I recommended the Advanced Medical Group to several of my friends, too.
