Foot Care Q & A

When do I need foot care?

There are many reasons you might need foot care from one of the experienced podiatrists at Foot & Ankle Centers of Frisco & Plano. 

Pain

Pain can occur anywhere in your feet, including the arches, the backs of the heels, the balls of the feet, the tops and sides of the feet, and the toes.

Appearance changes

When it comes to your feet, any changes in appearance can be cause for concern. This includes bruises, redness, new skin growths, bunions, new open wounds, ingrown toenails, and toenail thickening or warping. 

Foot movement or function changes

If your feet don’t move the same way anymore, it could indicate a serious problem. For example, you might notice that your feet roll slightly inward or outward when you’re walking or standing. Your feet might also get tired easily or feel weak. 

Underlying health problems

If you have underlying health problems, such as diabetes, you need regular foot care even if you don’t have any symptoms currently. Diabetes can cause nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy) and peripheral artery disease, both of which make you vulnerable to slow-healing wounds. 

The Foot & Ankle Centers of Frisco & Plano team manages your foot care needs in their state-of-the-art facilities.

Do I need regular foot care checkups?

If you have a history of foot problems or have a chronic condition affecting your feet, you need regular foot care exams. For example, if you have diabetes, you should see your podiatrist at least twice a year. Your podiatrist can recommend the right exam schedule for you.
