Life doesn’t stop just because we may slow down. When work needs to be done, kids need to be taken to practice, the library books need to be returned, and the house needs to be cleaned, we often push through to get it done even when we are dogged by aches and pains.
Understanding that foot and ankle pain is never normal is critical. Sure, the demands of life, exercise and bad shoe choices can leave us with tired feet at the end of the day, but recurring pain or problems are always something to address. A podiatrist is the only medical professional with the training and expertise to understand the entirety of your foot and ankle health. We care for every aspect of this area, so rest assured that your pain will be addressed.
Too many patients ignore symptoms in the hopes that they will simply go away when often, situations just worsen. If you have recurring pain, swelling, weakness, numbness, changes in skin or toenails, cracked or peeling skin, signs of infection, lumps, or abnormal moles it is time to visit one of our two Connecticut locations. This is especially true if you have a condition such as diabetes that could seriously hinder the healing of an injury. Your feet are a foundational part of your health and can also provide clues to other health problems that could be developing.
