A couple of weeks ago, I attended the Wound Certification Prep Course at the Westin Hotel in Chicago.  This intensive 17-hour seminar was taught by nationally recognized experts and educators in wound care.  I was able to brush up on wound healing techniques, get updated on the latest research and evidence based wound management, and discuss the newest wound care technology.

Arthritis is a disease that causes inflammation and swelling of one or more joints.  Arthritis can be a very painful and at times debilitating condition.  The doctors at Alpine Foot Specialists offer many treatment options tailored to each patient and their goals.  These options include MLS Laser therapy, viscosupplement injections, custom orthotics, steroid injections, braces, and surgery.

How do you know if you’re wearing the right size shoe?  Most people wear their shoes too small.  When standing, you should have about a thumbs width from your longest toe to the end of your shoe.  If your small toe is wearing through your shoe, then you likely need a wider shoe.  If you’re still unsure about your shoe size, make an appointment to be sized and discuss which types of shoes are best for your foot type and activity level.

Dr. Anna cautions parents that it is never normal for their child to have foot and or ankle pain. If your child is experiencing a painful condition that is holding them back from playing or participating in sports, she recommends making an appointment right away. Without treatment, many conditions can cause lingering or worsening symptoms.
