Common Foot Conditions

Here at Coastal Podiatry, LLC, we pride ourselves in providing the best care possible for all of our patients, no matter what their needs may be. From checkups to surgeries, you’ll find our expert doctors and caring staff offer services that not only put your foot pain at ease, but your mind as well. After all, it is our goal to help you feel comfortable and confident while you’re here.

An Expert Team

Our doctors and staff work together to make sure your experience is a positive one. Although we provide quality care for all podiatric conditions, our doctors do specialize in certain areas.

Dr. Rahn Ravenell is a specialist in reconstructive surgery for adult and pediatric flat feet. His expertise also includes surgical removal of bunions.

Dr. Tamika Ravenell is an expert in geriatric and diabetic foot care, providing services to local nursing homes.

 

Common Conditions

We provide services and care for many foot conditions, but some we see more than others. Here are just a few of the most common problems we treat:

Ankle sprains: a result of the foot unnaturally twisting, causing damage to the ligaments. If these tissue bands don’t heal well, complications can occur.

Athlete’s foot: this fungal infection of the skin is often contracted from walking barefoot in public places like pools and locker rooms.

Bunions: this inflammation of the big toe joint causes a painful, protruding bump that can worsen with friction, irritation and pressure from shoes.

Corns and Calluses: these built-up layers of dead skin can be attributed to friction from ill-fitting shoes. Typically, corns form on toes, while calluses develop on the bottoms of your feet.

Diabetic Foot Problems: Because diabetes often results in a loss of feeling, as well as a reduction in blood flow, wounds can go unnoticed and take a long time to heal. This increases the risk of infection and serious complications.

Plantar Fasciitis: heel pain is commonly the result of this condition, when the band of tissues that run along the bottom of your foot become inflamed. These tissues connect your toes to your heel bone, and when under stress cause pain and discomfort.

Other common conditions we see:

Convenient As Well As Caring

We understand that you are busy, so we go out of our way to make your visit as convenient as we can. Our diagnostic ultrasound machine is not only state-of-the-art, it is right here in the office! We also offer products available to take with you so you don’t have to make another stop when you leave.

Such products are:

RevitaDerm Foot Cream: this comes complete with a pumice stone and is used to get rid of dead skin and calluses. For best results, we recommend using right after you bathe, as this is when your skin is at its softest, making it easier to remove.

Clarus Anti-fungal Nail Polish: unlike other treatments, this is applied directly to your nail, yielding results in approximately 6 to 9 months. It’s also paraben-free.

Orthotics: We offer custom-made shoe inserts to help conservatively foot conditions found in both children and adults.
