Common Podiatric Concerns

We usually spend most of our day using our feet. Sometimes, when we get home, we may feel that our feet get sore even if we did not do a lot of walking during the day. There may be some underlying conditions why our feet are always aching. These conditions may include:

  • Blisters. One common discomfort that we have experienced in our feet are blisters. Blisters are the fluid-filled bubbles that are formed underneath the upper layers of our skin. Blisters may form if we have shoes that are too tight or too loose that they cause a lot of rubbing action against the skin of our feet. Blisters in our feet may also come as a result of allergic reactions, fungal infections, herpes, or bacterial infection. One way to determine why we have blisters on our feet is to go to a Podiatrist service for diagnosis.
  • Corns and Calluses. Another common foot problem that we encounter is the formation of corns and calluses. These are formed when repeated pressure causes a portion of the feet skin to die and form hard surfaces.
  • Athletes Foot. When our feet are always wet due to sweating and or exposure to too much moisture, then our feet may be susceptible to the growth of tinea fungi. Athletes foot can be contagious, and we can get infected if we come in direct contact with a person who already has it.

When we avail of a Podiatrist service, the podiatrist can give us an assessment as to why our feet are always aching. A Podiatrist may also assess our feet for any injuries that we might not have noticed. Remember that the weight of our body is always pounding our feet. There may be injuries and stress fractures to the bones of our feet without us even noticing. A podiatrist can also help us if we are experiencing plantar fasciitis or pain along the arch of our feet. This pain may be the result of a long injury that may only be noticeable because of our age.

  • Pronation. Podiatrists can also help us in choosing the right type of shoes for us. Each of us has a unique running style depending on the way our feet roll as we run or walk. A Podiatrist service can assess our pronation type and suggest the type of running shoes that will be suitable for us.
  • Diabetes Care. Podiatrist service will be extremely important for us if we have been diagnosed with diabetes. Diabetes reduces the blood flow to our feet which prevent us from detecting if our feet are injured or not. It is therefore, important for diabetic patients to have their feet checked regularly.
