Whether you’d like help with a preventative plan or need treatment for a condition or problem, Prairie Path Podiatry offers foot care services for patients young and old! We are committed to providing a relaxed and caring environment so you feel comfortable from the get go and with our expert staff, you can rest easy knowing you are getting the quality care you expect and deserve.
Keep in mind that most foot and ankle conditions can be addressed with non-invasive, conservative methods, which is why we believe in a holistic approach to podiatric care. Our services focus on helping your body heal and maintain your overall health. Some of the foot care services we provide include:
Skin and Nail Care
Let us help you keep your toenails and skin clear and healthy with treatments for ingrown toenails, corns and calluses, warts, fungal infections and more. Our laser therapy is a safe and effective way to eliminate stubborn skin and nail problems. We are also happy to provide information and tips to assist you in avoiding these issues in the future or better yet, in the first place!
Heel pain can be caused by a wide variety of underlying issues, thus treatments do vary. The most common culprit of heel pain is called plantar fasciitis— a condition in which the band of tissues (plantar fascia) that support your arch and span from heel to toe becomes damaged and inflamed, typically from overuse. We will help you to heal and resume activities pain-free.
Being physically active is great but unfortunately, there is always a risk of being sidelined with an injury. The good news is that many sports injuries—sprained ankles, turf toe, stress fractures, Achilles tendinitis and more—are often successfully treated with the use of conservative, nonsurgical care. When you are hurt on the field or court, we will create an effective treatment plan to get you back in the game as soon as possible.
Pediatric Foot Care
Tiny feet can have troubles too and it’s important to start a foot care routine early so you can promote and ensure healthy feet as your child grows. Common conditions we see in children include flat feet, in-toeing and out-toeing, ingrown toenails, warts and Sever’s disease — a condition in which the Achilles tendon grows slower than the heel bone, thus is pulled tight and causes pain. Sometimes it’s hard to know what to do to ease your child’s discomfort. We can help you understand when treatment is necessary and conversely, when there is no need to worry. Additionally, we are here to provide the gentle care that your son or daughter requires when injuries happen or issues do arise.
Diabetic Foot Care & Wound Care
Keeping a close eye on diabetic feet is vital for your overall health. Neuropathy, poor blood flow and other complications of diabetes can snowball into serious consequences, so a comprehensive preventative plan is a must for those who live with this disease. We can help you determine a daily routine that will keep your feet healthy and strong. If you do happen to sustain a wound, we are board certified to treat it so you will avoid any possible problems that could occur as a result.
We Are Here to Help
These are just a few of the services we provide and conditions we treat with our holistic approach. It’s important to note that while most foot and ankle issues can indeed be resolved with nonsurgical options, in the case that all conservative measures have been exhausted and you are still not finding relief, we will gladly help you determine if surgery might need to be considered and will refer you to a surgeon who can best meet your needs.
