The Benefits of Having a Podiatrist

When your feet hurt, it can dramatically impact your life. That’s just one of the reasons why it’s important to have a podiatrist as part of your healthcare team. Dr. Florin Costache and Dr. Lorry Melnick at Cherry Creek Foot & Ankle Clinic in Denver, CO, provide comprehensive foot care services.

How Having a Podiatrist Can Help You

A podiatrist is a foot, ankle, and toe expert who can diagnose and treat a wide variety of foot, ankle, and toe conditions. Healthy feet, ankles, and toes keep you moving throughout your life. Your podiatrist can help ensure your feet, ankles, and toes are healthy.

These are just a few of the ways a podiatrist can help you:

  • Treating diabetes-related conditions including neuropathy and loss of nerve sensation
  • Treating a sports injury involving your feet, ankles, and toes
  • Treating trauma related to an accident, including fractures, broken bones, and torn ligaments and tendons
  • Treating toe conditions including fungal toenail, hammertoe, and ingrown toenail
  • Treating foot conditions including plantar fasciitis, heel pain, Achilles tendonitis, and bunions
  • Treating ankle conditions including lateral ankle instability, ankle sprains, and ankle strains

Another important benefit of having a podiatrist is that your podiatrist provides many tools to help your feet, ankles, and toes, including:

  • Custom orthotics, to provide stability and help realign your feet and toes
  • Anti-inflammatory medication, both oral and by injection, to help reduce inflammation and pain
  • Physical therapy, to increase strength, mobility, flexibility, and range-of-motion
  • Surgery, to remove bunions, repair broken bones and torn tendons and ligaments, and help realign your feet and toes
