Taking care of your feet is important to your overall healthcare. When your feet are healthy, you’re able to participate in your favorite activities and daily functions. It’s important that you know when to see your podiatrist and how they can help you with certain issues. Our podiatrists at Foot Doctor of the East Bay in Pleasanton and San Leandro, CA, can explain what a podiatrist does and what issues they can treat.

What a Podiatrist Can Do for You

Just like seeing your general practitioner, it’s important that you regularly see your podiatrist. Our podiatrist in Pleasanton and San Leandro, CA, can help with specific issues or your general foot health. It’s important to understand how a podiatrist can help you and why it’s so important to your health.

A podiatrist can help when you’re dealing with different types of foot pain. This could mean you’re dealing with heel pain or pain in your arches. They can assess your feet and determine what your pain is being caused by. From there, they can help figure out the best form of treatment for your issues. You’ll likely need to take care of your feet at home. This could mean stretching your feet daily, icing your feet, or using orthotics to add extra support.

Common issues that your podiatrist can treat can include:

  • Foot fungus
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Bunions
  • Heel spurs
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Diabetic foot care
  • Warts
  • Hammertoes
  • Ankle sprain

It’s important that you see your podiatrist for treatment as soon as possible. The sooner you get treatment, the easier the issue usually is to treat.
