Here at the office of Dr. David Morris, comprehensive foot care means that for a wide array of concerns that affect your foot health and your ability to walk and engage in your favorite activities without pain, our podiatrist in Plantation is your specialist. Why settle for a general doctor when you can be examined, evaluated, and treated by an expert?
Different parts of your foot are prone to specific problems. For example, your toenails can sustain fungal infections, and they can also become ingrown as the result of improper technique when trimming or wearing tight shoes. Fungal infections, which can also include athlete’s foot, spread easily, and so timely attention to them is key. Ingrown nails can be trimmed here by our podiatrist in Plantation. In more severe cases, you might need to have the nail removed. Heel pain may be due to either plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, or both. Fortunately, orthotics are very effective as treatment, though more complicated circumstances will require stretching exercises, physical therapy, and possibly medication. Bunions and hammertoes impact the toe area, with bunions nearly always forming on the big toe, while hammertoes can affect any toe. Again, orthotics are the treatment of choice, except in cases or rigid hammertoes, for which surgery is generally a given. Done here by our podiatrist in Plantation, it’s a simple procedure that is strictly outpatient. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, you may sustain a sprain or fracture. Don’t hesitate to seek out out immediately for an analysis and x-rays. And besides the most common conditions, like the ones mentioned, wound care is skillfully administered, as is the ongoing care and treatment when the well-being of your feet is threatened by diabetes.
For both attention to acute and immediate foot and ankle problems, as well as proactive care, you can depend on us. Call our podiatrist in Plantation office to arrange a time to come in for an examination.
