CrossFit is a great way to get in a good workout. Unfortunately, many people don’t prepare themselves and they end up injured. Avoid that by warming up properly.

If you’re wondering whether or not a foot orthotic can help you out the answer is probably yes. We can help figure out what you need.

If you have persistent or chronic foot pain, orthotics may be the solution you've been looking for. Custom orthotics work to realign your feet to a more neutral position.

Staying active is important, but it’s also important to protect your feet from sports injuries. Do this by wearing shoes that fit you correctly and never skimping on your warm up and cool down.

Sometimes people can suffer from a stress fracture and not even know it. Or they just try to push through the pain. Discomfort and pain are not normal, and if you feel them you should get to a doctor to get treatment.

As parents we often wonder if our children are developing normally. If you suspect something might be off there is nothing wrong with making an appointment to get them examined.

Nothing can put a damper on a good time like a fungal infection. Before you go on that vacation make sure you pack extra flip flops for the pool.

Preventing a fungal infection requires a little extra care when grooming your feet. Dr. Mitchell Wachtel in Lowell, MA has more information.

I went to Dr. Wachtel with two incredibly painful ingrown toe nails and in a matter of 2 appointments, they were fixed up good as new. The procedure was relatively painless and the good Dr. performed with finesse and accuracy that got the job done. The whole surgery only took about 5 to 10 mins! I was very impressed. Not only was he efficient, but always had a friendly attitude and wasn't shy to strike up conversation and crack jokes. I consider myself very lucky to have found his services and recommend him to anyone looking for a podiatrist.

Dr. Mitchell Wachtel has been working on my foot for a few months now. He is very caring and knows whats the best for me. I was upset the last time I saw him, not because of him but just having a bad day and he cheered me up. I just want to thank you for not just being my podiatrist but listening to me babble.

I saw Dr Wachtel for an ingrown nail problem on both big toes. He was was very informative and was able to take care of the problem on both toes in one visit. Now I am pain free.

Dr. Wachtel is one of the best Podiatrists I've seen. He and his staff treated me with great care and were very attentive to my needs. They are all very friendly and I’ve never had a problem scheduling appointments with him. Dr. Wachtel is very compassionate towards his patients and truly listens to them to make sure all their needs are met. He offers great services and is a wonderful doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Wachtel to anyone who is looking for a Podiatrist. He truly is the best! -Michael P. Arcidi

I've had two procedures here and four appointments overall with a great experience. The staff is friendly and all appointments have been promptly kept, even when I arrived late for one. The medical staff in knowledgeable and Dr. Wachtel is always professional, friendly and attentive. He explains all the procedures thoroughly, I feel well taken care of through this office.

I had a very good experience with this office. I'd been to other places for my foot problems and they always recommended the most expensive option, regardless of what I wanted. Dr. Wachtel was personable and listened to what I said, which is important to me. Like someone else mentioned, the wait could be a bit long, but the staff is incredibly friendly and nice so honestly that made the wait worth it for me. Waiting at the doctors is standard, a great staff is not. My feet are much better and I wouldn't hesitate to go back to Dr. Wachtel if I had any other issues.

I have been seeing Dr. Wachtel for a little over a year for an issue that is now resolved. From the beginning, he was very thorough in his care and addressed the problem so quickly and sufficiently. He is very knowledgeable and kind, and truly listens to his patient's concerns. I have been very pleased with the treatments and results I have seen. I would definitely recommend him!

I have only been twice yet I felt very comfortable. I was nervous about my procedure but his staff and Dr. Wachtel himself made me feel at ease. He helped me within only two short weeks I was much better. The staff was very helpful with questions and directions on the phone before I even came into the office. Very impressed!! Thank you so much.
