 The answer is everyone! When it comes to the care of your family’s feet, ankles, and lower legs, no one is better-qualified to provide medical care than your podiatrist. With years of specialized training and experience, a board-certified podiatrist like Dr. Boris Abramov and Dr. Tatyana Abramova is the best choice to examine, diagnose, and treat all illnesses and injuries of this part of your body.

Are you wondering whether you or a family member should see a podiatrist? Here are some common reasons patients come to Abramov’s Comprehensive Foot Care:

  • Many men experience foot health issues related to athletics.  Foot and ankle injuries are common. Men who spend time in locker rooms commonly find themselves dealing with athletes foot and other fungal infections. Of course, these issues are not limited to men. Women and children deal with them as well.

  • Women who choose high-heeled shoes with narrow, pointy toe boxes for everyday use are more likely than others to suffer from bunions and hammertoes. Happily, your podiatrist will have many treatment options, including over-the-counter and prescription medication for pain and swelling and custom orthotics for cushioning and support. Occasionally, surgery is required to correct a foot deformity. Many podiatrists are surgical specialists and are well-prepared for this eventuality.

  • Foot pain is not limited to adults. Children deal with a wide range of conditions that cause discomfort, including toenail fungus and ingrown toenails that occur as they learn to manage their grooming and hygiene independently. Remind your child to wash feet daily and dry them well, especially between the toes. Nails should be trimmed with a clipper, rather than scissors, and cut straight across.
