Wondering if it’s time to see a podiatrist?
A podiatrist is a medical specialist that can prevent and treat conditions, diseases and injuries that impact the feet and ankles. So, our team can be a huge benefit if you are dealing with foot or ankle issues. We want you to feel like part of our family when you're in our office. Our San Leandro, CA, podiatrist Dr. Zeineldin Ahmad, always strive to provide a listening ear and custom, thoughtful care that meets your needs. So, when can you benefit from turning to our team of skilled, friendly and caring podiatrists?
Pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. If home care isn’t improving your symptoms or your pain is severe and impacting your daily routine, you owe it to turn to our podiatrists for answers. Foot or ankle pain can happen for several reasons, and it’s our job to find out what’s causing your pain. We offer the latest advanced laser technology, including the MLS Laser, to treat acute and chronic pain, swelling and inflammation most often caused by arthritis, sports injuries, neuropathy and tendonitis.
If you have diabetes, chances are good that you understand the impact that this chronic metabolic disorder can have on the health of your feet. You also want to have a podiatrist that understands the complexities of diabetes and how it impacts foot health. Not only does our team provide routine checkups, but we also offer medical pedicures, prescription shoes and diabetic wound care.
Fungal nail infections aren’t just unsightly; they can also cause severe damage to a nail. Unfortunately, over-the-counter fungal infections typically aren’t effective enough to entirely kill the fungus. Why wait to get the proper effective treatment you need? Not only can our San Leandro, CA, podiatrists provide effective topical and oral medications to treat fungal infections, but also we offer the GenesisPlus. This laser treatment is effective for treating persistent or severe fungal infections.
When you think of a podiatrist, the first thing you think of probably isn’t acupuncture; however, our San Leandro, CA, team also has a licensed acupuncturist onboard. Tennsi Hsi practices acupuncture right here in our office and can treat many conditions, including musculoskeletal problems; however, acupuncture can also be incredibly effective for alleviating chronic foot pain. If you are dealing with chronic plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, stress fractures, turf toe, bunions or metatarsalgia, acupuncture may benefit you.
If you are dealing with foot and ankle problems that require expert care or diagnosis from our San Leandro, CA, podiatrists, call Foot Doctors of the East Bay at (510) 483-3390 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ahmad.
