Foot Care in Pittsburgh, PA
Enjoy your next pool party or another outdoor event with your socks off when you take advantage of our treatment and foot care in Pittsburgh, PA. During the winter months, your boots and socks keep your feet warm. But this environment can become a breeding ground for toe fungus and cause wounds to heal at a slower rate. Give your feet the care that they deserve and make every step an adventure when you choose MLG Podiatry.
Your first visit to a podiatric specialist shouldn’t be in the aftermath of a catastrophic injury. Conditions like Plantar Fasciitis can develop over time, and this is why regular examinations are so critical. Feet are often a forgotten part of your overall health regimen, which is especially confusing when you consider the complexity of this extremity.
Despite their distance from the rest of your body, your feet are the lynchpin for healthy living. Any pain or discomfort you experience may be a leading indicator of diabetes, heart problems, and even nerve damage. When faced with foot pain and discomfort, many shy away from the cardiovascular exercise they need to stay healthy. Keep your feet free of fungus and ingrown nails, and get the treatment you need for your arches and tendons as well.
Fueling the Fungus
For a good portion of the year, our feet stay bundled up and warm. When our feet are warm, they typically start sweating. That warm and wet environment can become a breeding ground for yeast, molds, and even fungal organisms like dermatophyte. The resulting toenail fungus is more than just uncomfortable, it is embarrassing. For those living with diabetes, the reduced circulation that accompanies this condition that comes from diabetes can exacerbate any fungal growth and could potentially lead to dangerous foot wounds or ulcerations.
For patients that do not have diabetes, whether your foot injury is the result of an ill-fitting boot or an active, athletic lifestyle, get the treatment you need as soon as you can. With six different locations to serve you, our practice makes getting that treatment even easier.
