Ingrown Toenails Can Cause Big Problems
One of the most common foot problems we treat at Kansas City Foot Specialists is ingrown toenails. An ingrown toenail can be caused by many things including genetics, cutting your toenails too short, wearing poorly fitted shoes, or pulling or tearing nails instead of clipping them. While this condition may be no more than an irritation for some patients, as many ingrown toenails heal themselves over time, they can also become a serious problem if they get infected.
This can be extremely dangerous for diabetics or patients with poor blood circulation. While most ingrown toenails can be treated with non-invasive procedures, more serious cases may require surgery, which is usually performed in the office, under local anesthesia. Don’t live with the pain. Let the foot doctors at Kansas City Foot Specialists help.
Heel Pain Is a Common Foot Problem
One of the most common foot problems we treat is heel pain. Your heels take a lot of abuse every day. Your heels may be hurting for a variety of reasons, including:
- Achilles tendonitis
- Calf tightening
- Flat footedness
- Plantar fasciitis
- Weight gain
Heel conditions that are severe may require surgery. If surgery is necessary, it will take place at our state-of-the-art Surgery Center of Blue Valley. No matter what’s causing your heel pain, our foot doctors always look for the most conservative approach possible to alleviate your pain with minimally invasive treatment. If we can help our Liberty patients avoid surgery, we will.
Diabetic Foot Care for Liberty Patients
If you have diabetes, pay special attention to your feet. At Kansas City Foot Specialists, we offer advanced treatment options for diabetics. Through continued education and regular appointments, we can help you determine if you are at risk for diabetes-related foot ulcers. If a wound goes untreated, it could develop into something more severe such as an ulcer and in a worst-case scenario, could require amputation.
Early recognition and regular foot screenings will help prevent the need for amputation. If you have diabetes, make it a point to inspect your feet daily and look for these warning signs in both feet and ankles:
- Ingrown and fungal toenails
- Dry cracks in the skin, especially around the heel
- Changes in skin color
- Pain in the legs
- Open sores that are slow to heal
- Bleeding corns and calluses
