There are a variety of reasons why you may need to see a foot doctor. The musculoskeletal system of the feet, ankles, and lower legs involve many different parts that have to work together in unison to create smooth and pain-free movement. If any of these parts are not functioning properly, the whole system can suffer!
Luckily, we are highly skilled in treating a variety of conditions and issues. Whether you have slight discomfort or severe pain, we can provide you with care that allows you to live the lifestyle you want!
These are just some of the conditions, treatments, and services you will find at our podiatric office. Just ask us if you have any questions!
Custom foot orthotics are designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look similar to insoles, but are biomedical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. The plastic body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot while you walk. We understand that everyone is different, which is why custom foot orthotics are made just for you.

In most cases, invasive methods are not necessary to correct many foot disorders. Though in more extreme conditions, surgery may be required. The need for surgery will depend on the severity of the condition, the amount of pain the patient is experiencing, and the patient’s past response to various treatments.
Ulcers on the foot may not always come with pain, but they are serious conditions that should be evaluated by a medical professional. The symptoms of ulcers may include drainage, or red, inflamed tissue. To properly diagnose and develop a treatment plan x-rays may be ordered.
What is Cutting Edge Laser Therapy?
MLS Lasers, by Cutting Edge, offer a completely painless therapy for the treatment of pain and swelling while providing an increased healing response. The use of simultaneous dual wavelengths of light with both continuous and pulsed emissions makes MLS laser therapy the most advanced system currently on the market. This FDA approved technology uses laser light to promote inter-cellular activity, speed healing, and greatly reduce pain and discomfort. Our MLS Laser provides the most consistent coverage over a larger area.
This therapy can be used to treat a multitude of foot and ankle problems including tendonitis, heel pain, arch pain, and ankle sprains and strains. The laser also speeds up the healing of superficial abrasions, and diabetic ulcers.
Eliminate warts from the inside out with the use of the Swift Machine.
What is the Swift Machine?
The Swift Machine applies microwaves to label the DNA of the wart cell, which triggers the body’s immune system to recognize the wart as foreign and remove it from the inside out.
What can you anticipate with Swift Treatment?
The Swift Treatment protocol involves 3 to 4 sessions spaced 4 weeks apart, aligning with the body’s natural immune cycle. Each session lasts only 5-10 minutes and involves minimal debridement, no breaking of the skin, and no need for bandages. There is no requirement for home treatment between sessions, and patients can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.

Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive treatment option used in podiatry to help alleviate pain and promote healing for a variety of foot and ankle conditions. The therapy involves the use of high-energy sound waves that are directed to the affected area of the foot, stimulating the body’s natural healing response. This treatment can help to reduce pain, inflammation, and promote tissue regeneration in conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and heel spurs. Shockwave Therapy is generally safe and can be an effective alternative to more invasive treatments such as surgery.
