Houston Physicians' Hospital Podiatry Specialists
Your feet are complex anatomical structures. They stabilize the body, absorb shock, and allow us to perform everyday movements that are important to our overall health. When foot injuries occur, your feet require the care of a specialist. At Houston Physicians’ Hospital, our team of Podiatrists is devoted to studying, diagnosing, and treating disorders of the feet and ankles. Our Podiatrists can treat a wide range of foot conditions, including foot pain, cracks or cuts in the skin, and athletes foot. Additionally, our podiatrists can provide orthotic insoles, which can help patients ease heel or arch pain in some conditions. A number of diseases manifest first through symptoms in the lower extremities, such as diabetes and kidney disease. Houston Physicians’ Hospital’s Podiatrists can help catch these problems before they occur.
Feet and Ankle Injuries
We use our feet and ankles every day. With all this use, injuries can sometimes happen. Fractures, dislocations, and sprains can all affect the feet, lower legs, and ankles. If an injury is serious and simple pain management techniques don’t work, it is recommended to see a podiatric specialist. Staying on your feet and ignoring an injury can cause more pain and trauma in the future.
Types of feet and Ankle Injuries:
- Bone Dislocation
- Bone Fractures
- Strained Muscles
