Well this list is just too long. That is why Dr. Z trained for over a decade. Make an appointment.
Ingrown nails can be treated easily and quickly. Sometimes regular care is all that is needed. Other times Dr. Z will freeze the toe and do a simple procedure to make the nail grow more narrow permanently.
Dr. Z is proud to offer credit card thin carbon fiber custom orthotics. Before prescribing, a complete examination is performed and a mold is taken from your foot held in its corrected position. Orthotics are not a crutch, but rather retrain your muscles to strengthen and enable you to hold your own foot in its most efficient and stable position.
Nails become thickened with age, with injuries and with skin conditions such as psoriasis. Some can be cured, but all can be made to look dramatically better.
Ankle Sprains, Achilles Tendonitis, Sesamoiditis, Broken toes -- there are lots of parts to break. RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) is a good place to start.
There are many causes of heel pain, and most of them improve with proper exercises, stretching, shoes and/or orthotics. Plantar Fasciitis is a common diagnosis that responds well to stiff shoes and orthotics. Some causes of pain can require x-rays, blood tests and other examinations to diagnose and treat. I can now perform an in office ultrasound to actually see the damage.
Common causes of pain in the forefoot include lack of fat pad, and pinched nerves such as Morton's Neuroma. Burning in the toes and balls of the feet can be a sign of diabetes or a neuroma. Neuromas can now be seen on ultrasound during your visit.
