Foot Facts and Care Instructions to Put the Pep Back in Your Step

All of our podiatrists have at least eight years’ worth of experience and insight in foot and ankle care—some have over 20. With this knowledge comes great responsibility to teach others how to properly care for their feet. At Atlantic Foot and Ankle, we take this responsibility seriously. Come see and learn how our knowledge can benefit you, your children, and your family by showing you how to properly care and treat your feet all year round.

  • When To Call a Doctor People call a doctor of podiatry for help diagnosing and treating a wide array of foot and ankle problems. Please contact our office if you experience one of the following:
  • Sesamoiditis: Inflamed Bones and Tendons under Your Toe Under your big toe, nestled in the tendons, are two small round bones about the size of peas. They act as pulleys so your tendons can glide and stretch easily as you move your toe, and a fulcrum point for leverage as you push off with each step
  • Help for Arthritis in Your Feet and Ankles A tissue called cartilage fills in gaps at the ends of the bones to make the joint fit together. In addition, it (with the synovial fluid) provides a smooth gliding surface between the bones in a joint.
  • Hammertoes: Tapping out a Painful Melody How does this toe deformity happen? Sometimes it is inherited and shows up on its own. A trauma to the toe can cause nerve or muscle damage as well.
  • Foot Care for Seniors Over 50 Your feet may be showing their age after that many miles, so making foot care for seniors a part of your overall health care plan is important to keep you enjoying life.
  • Flat Feet: Avoid Pain by Tending to Your Tendons Even flat feet are fine, as long as they don’t cause pain or limit your activities. But when you’ve had a regular arch in your foot, and something has caused it to collapse, you may have a problem.
  • 5 Risk Factors for Metatarsalgia One of the most common causes for developing metatarsalgia is intense activity. You may have upped your distance or speed in your running routine, tried out a new sport, or joined the military and are dealing with basic training.
