Many patients visit our care center thinking their foot problems may not be a big deal. Unfortunately, even seemingly mundane situations can evolve into something far worse without intervention from a professional.
You may feel tingling, numbness, or pain in the feet or ankles that can indicate a more serious underlying condition or serve as a red flag for a more serious condition. These symptoms appear innocuous but can be caused by poor circulation, diabetes, or issues related to the nerves.
Our team from Southernmost Foot & Ankle Specialists will work toward determining the root cause of these discomforts while providing you with a unique, customized treatment plan aiming to give you the long-term relief you deserve.
Athlete’s foot is a fungal skin infection that affects many patients. Often it originates between their toes. The condition commonly occurs in individuals whose feet have become sweaty while confined within tight-fitting footwear.
Athletes’ foot is caused by the same fungus that leads to ringworm and jock itch. Damp socks and humid conditions encourage fungal growth. This condition is contagious and can spread through contact with an infected person, and contact with any contaminated surfaces, including towels, floors, and shoes.
Nail fungus is a commonly occurring condition that patients may initially observe as a white or yellow spot beneath the tip of their nails. As the fungal infection grows and goes deeper, the nail typically discolors, thickens, and crumbles at the edges.
Yeast and molds can cause nail infections and may impact people of any age. However, the condition is far more common in older adults. As nails begin to age, they may become brittle and dry. When the nails start to crack, the resulting gaps in the nail surface enable fungi to enter.
Do you suffer from pain in the front of your lower legs after heavy physical activity? You may need to visit with a podiatrist in Homestead from our team. Those that play tennis or basketball (as well as various other high-intensity activities) may experience mild to severe and persistent symptoms related to shin splints.
Shin splints are caused by repetitive stress on the shinbone and connective tissues that attach the muscles to the shin bone. Care plans and treatments may include pain-relievers, rest, resistant taping, custom orthotics, and stretching.
Spider veins are dilated capillaries on the skin that aesthetically resemble spider legs. While many think that this condition predominantly impacts only older women, they remain common among children as men as well.
Spider veins may develop when blood does not properly flow through smaller vessels in a condition called venous insufficiency. When this occurs, the veins can become enlarged and appear visibly red, blue, or purple through the skin.
