In addition to the fact that your feet absorb a tremendous amount of punishment simply from day-to-day activities like walking, and the fact that your shoes may not always be doing you any favors (too tight, not supportive enough, not comfortable), you may also develop a foot condition, disease, or injury that can cause you pain or may sideline you for a period of time. At The Foot & Ankle Center of Issaquah, you have one practice that offers the very best in comprehensive foot care.
You would want a specialist for your heart or your lungs or your eyes, so why not your feet? Our foot doctor in Bellevue focuses on your needs and understands the intricacies of the foot and ankle. And while any part of your foot can end up needing attention and treatment, the three areas that are most typically affected are the heel, ankle, and toes. This can be due to joint issues, but may also result from an infection. Fungus is a key concern because it really likes moist and warm environments. Athlete’s foot is all too easy to contract, especially if you walk barefoot on communal surfaces like locker rooms and shower floors. Your toenails may become infected too, which is also usually unsightly. Hammertoes and bunions are common toe issues, while heel pain may be due to either heel spurs, the inflammation of the band of tissue connecting the heel to the toes (plantar fasciitis), or both. And ankle sprains are an extremely common problem. Our foot doctor in Bellevue will examine you and identify the most effective and simple treatment possible given your condition and your unique circumstances. Often this can be done with a shoe insert called an orthotic. However, the range of possibly remedies is varied and can include stretching exercises, topical medications, physical therapy, cortisone injections, and even surgery.
