Ingrown Toenails
Ingrown toenails can become inflamed, infected, and very painful. Timely and appropriate treatment is important, to avoid them getting worse.

Foot orthotics are used to improve the function of the feet; thereby treating conditions such as those that stem from faulty foot mechanics. Foot specialists/chiropodists often use these devices in their treatment plan.

Fungal Nails
Fungal toenails are quite difficult to self-diagnose since many problems can manifest in the toenail. However, fungus may be identifiable by white spots on the surface of toenails, yellow / brown tracks at the end of the nail, similar tracks extending up from the cuticle or crumbling at the nail edges.

Plantar warts are common viral foot infections caused by the human papilloma virus. They are often seen on the bottom of feet but can also spread between toes and on the surface of feet.

Diabetes and Your Feet
Diabetes is a systemic illness that can affect many different parts of the body. This is especially true for the feet. Proper foot screening is incredibly important for diabetic patients and any kind of cut or sore should be taken very seriously.

Heel Spurs
A heel spur is a bony protrusion that occurs on the heel. It is often confused with plantar fasciitis, which is inflammation of the plantar fascia ligament. When a heel spur is painful it can make it quite difficult to walk.

Corns and calluses are hard layers of skin that usually form due to friction. Generally, they will be in areas of the foot that are bearing weight, or areas that frequently rub against the shoe. Soft corns are typically found between the toes.

Athlete's Foot
Athlete’s foot is a very common fungal infection that affects countless people around the world. It will manifest itself on the skin of the foot, in many cases in between the toes. Because fungi proliferate in warm, damp environments, keeping the feet clean and dry is of utmost importance in avoiding athlete’s foot.
