Foot Disorders Q & A

What are foot disorders?

Foot disorders include any condition that affects the normal structure or function of your foot. Your foot is a complex body part composed of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves that all work together to support locomotion.

Any condition that affects the normal function of one or more of the parts of your foot may lead to a foot disorder. Common foot disorders include:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis
  • Ankle sprains
  • Bunions and hammertoes
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Toenail fungal infections
  • Foot or ankle wounds
  • Fractures
  • Corns and calluses
  • Flat feet
  • Plantar warts

These conditions may cause foot or ankle pain or affect your body mechanics and cause pain in your knees or hips.

When do foot disorders require medical care?

You should seek medical care at New York Specialty Clinics for any foot disorder that causes pain, interferes with your daily activities, or fails to improve within a few days of at-home care. 

You should also seek medical care for your foot disorder at New York Specialty Clinics if you have a history of diabetes or vascular condition. 

These chronic health conditions affect circulation and healing in your feet. Without proper treatment, any foot disorder may lead to more serious complications such as a nonhealing ulcer, infection, or limb loss. 

New York Specialty Clinics also provides comprehensive wound care to support the healing of foot or ankle wounds. 

What happens during a foot disorder consultation?

When you visit New York Specialty Clinics for your foot disorder, you can expect a thorough clinical exam. The multispeciality practice includes many health disciplines that can diagnose and treat your foot disorder, including family medicine physicians, internists, podiatrists, and physical therapists.

During your exam, your provider reviews your symptoms and medical history, then performs a physical exam, paying close attention to the structure and function of your feet.

To confirm or rule out a diagnosis, your provider may request diagnostic tests such as blood work, urinalysis, or X-rays. 

How are foot disorders treated?

The experts at New York Specialty Clinics develop individualized treatment plans for foot disorders based on the underlying cause and your medical history. The multispecialty practice provides many treatments at the office, so there’s no need for you to visit other clinics to get the care you need.

Treatment for your foot disorder may include:

  • Activity modification
  • Orthotics
  • Physical therapy
  • Podiatry care
  • Disease-specific medication
  • Wound care

New York Specialty Clinics schedules regular follow-up appointments to monitor your foot disorder and adjust your plan as needed.
