Secure Relief with Prompt Help
Do you know that your feet can tell a story? Do you know that feet can display symptoms of health ailments? Do you know that foot problems increase with age? The human foot is indeed a complex formation with 26 bones, 33 joints, and numerous tendons, muscles, and ligaments and as such anything can go wrong over persistent usage. Some foot problems may be inherited while others occur because of wear and tear with aging. Foot sores can cause foot pain, dry skin, thickened or discolored nails, swelling, inflammation and walking discomfort. Pain in the feet can travel to the legs, hips, and back. Some foot problems, if not promptly attended to, can even be a symptom for a larger and more serious disease. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry, Cupertino, California, diagnose each problem with utmost care to secure relief for their patients.
Toenails that are rounded inward instead of outward may be due to iron deficiency. Kidney disease, urinary disorders, cardiac ailment, high blood pressure, and blood circulatory problems can lead to foot swelling. Tingling or numbness in the feet and slow-healing wounds are symptoms of diabetes. Chronic stiffness in the toes could be a sign of arthritis. A foot problem that is apparently minor like a fungal infection or sores on the feet, can turn serious in a person with diabetes or other blood circulatory problems. Patients suffering from diabetes may experience neuropathy in the feet - a condition that affects the nerves leading to an inability to feel pain and heat or cold. Advising their patients to pay immediate attention to symptoms, the doctors at the podiatric clinic educate and instill knowledge in their patients while rendering customized treatment and timely help deploying the latest in foot care with state-of-the-art equipment and medication.
Feet should also be checked daily for any cuts and sores particularly when you reach old age. Early detection of any foot ailment and prompt medical attention is important because a foot problem can suddenly turn serious. High heels and ill-fitting shoes that squeeze the feet can cause a host of foot problems. Some common problems arising out of tight shoes include nerve growths called neuromas, corns, calluses, blisters, and hammertoes - a condition in which the toes are bent like a claw. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry not only go into an in-depth study of each case, but follow up the treatment with efficiency thereby giving the patient a chance to live a quality and a pain-free life.
Feet should be washed every day with soap and lukewarm water, especially between the toes, and then dried completely with a soft towel. Any mild soap or antibacterial hand soap works fine. Proper foot hygiene can prevent occurrence of many foot problems.

Enjoy the Freedom of Life
Sometimes due to the stress of life, we tend to ignore pain in the lower extremities. As we try to race against time in order to keep up with trends, we do not give importance to our feet or the pain that occurs frequently. It is imperative that we see a podiatrist to determine the cause of any kind of foot disorder. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry, Cupertino, California, have focused their expertise and experience to relieve their patients from pain in the feet so that they can go about their daily lives normally.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, people tend to suffer from unusual symptoms. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry are trained to diagnose the cause accurately, however complex the situation like inexplicable tingling or burning in the feet. This can lead to the Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. The tarsal tunnel is a narrow space that lies alongside the ankle bones on the inside. This tunnel has a protective thick ligament that safeguards the structures contained within - like arteries, veins, tendons, and nerves. At times, the symptoms may even extend to the heel, arch, toes, and the calf. Sometimes one or many of these symptoms may appear suddenly. Otherwise they occur due to aggravation by overuse of the foot - such as in prolonged standing, walking, exercising, or beginning a new exercise program. Patients suffering from tarsal tunnel syndrome experience tingling, burning, or an electric shock-like sensation, numbness or shooting foot pain on the inside of the ankle and/or on the bottom of the foot and can buy products to relive foot pain at Dr. Mike's Foot Store.
The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry advise you to seek early treatment, in case symptoms of tarsal tunnel syndrome occur. If neglected, the syndrome may result in permanent nerve damage. The foot doctor will examine the affected foot to determine the presence of the syndrome. During this examination, the foot doctor will position the foot and tap on the nerve to see if the symptoms can be reproduced. It is important to know that the symptoms of tarsal tunnel syndrome can be confused with other conditions and therefore proper medical evaluation is essential for correct diagnosis. Traditional treatment involves foot support, which is extremely helpful when the patient has flat feet. Anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed and sometimes steroid injections are administered.
Foot surgery has to be resorted to, if these conventional treatments fail. An incision is made into the tissues to allow room for expansion of the nerve or for removal of a cyst or any other growth that is compressing the nerve.
