Your feet are intricate networks of tendons, nerves, bones and muscles. To an NYC podiatrist, the foot is a marvel of human machinery that requires its very own specialty to treat. Your feet serve so many important functions — from standing to walking, running, balancing and kicking.
Your feet have to be strong enough to carry your full weight and sensitive enough to tell you when you’ve stepped on something that could harm you. As the furthest appendage from your heart, your feet are prone to a wide range of problems and are sometimes slower to heal.
Foot pain can have many causes. All symptoms should always be discussed with your podiatrist after a thorough consultation and examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan to exclude any underlying serious condition.
