At VP foot and Ankle we have experience with a variety of adult foot and ankle problems.
Common problems we address include Toenail fungus, athletes foot, ingrown nails, corns, calluses, and warts. There are multiple treatments available to treat these issues and will be discussed with you at time of visit and tailored to your needs. At times underlyng musculskeletal abnormalities may cause skin and nail disorders and at times must be addressed to resolve pain.
Musculoskeletal disorders are those conditions that effect muscles, bones and/or joints in the foot and ankle. Conditions include ankle sprains, fractures, tendonitis, arthritis and flat feet. The cause of such disorderes may be due to overuse, trauma, or deformity in the structure of the foot and/or ankle.
Disorders of the neurovascular system or those that that effect nerves, arteries, veins, and lymphatic system. Common disorders include neuromas, wounds, circulation problems, chronic swelling, neuropathy. Neuropathy is common in diabetics and is a loss of sensation in the feet, an important factor in protecting the feet from injury. Symptoms such as numbness, tingling, burning, pain may be seen with neuropathy and can often be managed or treated.
We perform in office circulation studies as well as nerve conduction studies, a study which helps to determine if there is a dysfunction in the nervous system.
