Diabetic Foot Care
Caring for your diabetic requires more than simply controlling blood sugar. Diabetic foot care is an important part of your scope of care. We offer routine and preventative care for patients with diabetes, as well as screenings to prevent complications of diabetes on lower extremities. We offer all-inclusive services for our patients with diabetes including nail care, wound care, screening and exams, and shoe and insert prescriptions.
Patients with gout may experience acute, red, hot and swollen joint pain in the foot that occurs without an injury. We take extra care to provide treatment options to our patients with gout including in-office x-rays, prescriptions for medications to control flare-ups, and if necessary, surgical correction.
Peripheral Vascular Disease
Peripheral Vascular disease happens when there is not enough blood flow to lower extremities, like the feet. Symptoms may include cramping and swelling in the feet as well as wounds that are not healing because of lack of blood flow. Our podiatry team at Westside Podiatry will support you in treating the symptoms of Peripheral Vascular Disease. Once your symptoms have been addressed, your podiatrist will work with you to develop a plan for follow up to prevent future complications.
Flat Foot/ High Arch
Feet that are flat or have high arches can have varying symptoms that can include pain in the foot, arthritis in the feet from the arch issues, and instability while walking. At Westside Podiatry, our team will create a care plan for you that includes foot screening, in-office x-rays and an evaluation of the way that you walk. Treatment options may include inserts or orthotic treatment, recommendations for activity, and if necessary, surgical options.
Peripheral Neuropathy involves issues with the nerves in the lower extremities. Patients with Peripheral Neuropathy may experience painful symptoms such as burning and tingling sensations, as well as numbness from nerves not functioning correctly.
