Every day at Advanced Foot Care Centers we see patients with foot and ankle pain. Perhaps the most common comment we hear is, “I thought foot pain was normal.” This belief is understandable, but incorrect. Foot pain isn’t normal—it’s a sign that something is wrong. And if something is causing you to experience pain, there is certainly a solution to be found.
We explain it this way: if you began to experience eye pain every day, you wouldn’t ignore it or say it’s normal because we use our eyes constantly. But for some reason we tell ourselves that foot pain is different. We almost expect it, especially as we age. While it is true that there are aspects of growing older which we cannot control, there are a number of problems that arise that a qualified podiatrist can treat to reduce or eliminate pain. Each foot is an individual case, and requires a custom treatment plan, but that is our specialty.
From acute injuries, such as fractures or sprains, to chronic pain due to arthritis or years of ill-fitting shoes, any one of our clinics is happy to assist. We treat diabetics, children, athletes, etc. Anyone experiencing foot or ankle pain is welcome to work with us. And we understand that some problems such as nail fungus or bunions may seem unsightly or embarrassing, but remember, we have seen it all.
Our business is getting you back on your feet and moving pain-free, so please contact us by phone or online request at one of our six location in Tennessee ( Hixson, St. Elmo, Brainerd, East Brainerd) and North Georgia ( Ft. Oglethorpe, and Dalton).
