Although most patients with plantar fasciitis respond to non-surgical treatment, a small percentage of patients may require surgery. If, after several months of non-surgical treatment, you continue to have heel pain, surgery will be considered. Our foot specialists will discuss the surgical options with you and determine which approach would be most beneficial for you. http://ow.ly/bcCE3038Q36

Because there are several potential causes, it is important to have heel pain properly diagnosed. As foot specialists we are able to distinguish between all the possibilities and determine the underlying source of your heel pain. #heelpain #plantarfasciitis

Ingrown toenails are a common problem in young children. Sometimes kids will clip their nails too short or wear constrictive socks and shoes, causing an ingrown toenail to develop. Fixing the problem can be easy. If you're child gets an ingrown toenail, give them a light toe massage and a warm bath. But if the pain becomes too unbearable, give us a visit. We'll get your child back on their feet. #ingrowntoenail #footpain

Before you race off to that 5K you've been training for, make sure you're wearing good shoes to prevent injuries like plantar fasciitis. #plantarfasciitis #heelpain

Did you know that wearing shoes that are too small can cause ingrown toenails? Be sure to buy shoes that fit properly. But if you are already experiencing a painful ingrown toenail, come and see us at one of our offices. We'll take care of you.
