As the weather gets warmer, our feet and ankles are coming out of hibernation —but they may not exactly be ready for sandal season. The truth is that many people put off seeing the doctor about problems with their feet or ankles because they are unsure of where to go for treatment. Or, believe it or not, they think that continuous foot discomfort is normal. Trust me, it’s not normal to have constant foot pain.
If you have any issues that involve the foot and or ankle—a sports injury, arthritis/joint pain, skin problems, etc. —a visit to the podiatrist is your best bet. A podiatrist is a specialist who manages and treats almost all symptoms that involve the ankle and/or the foot.
