Foot & Ankle Conditions

Feet, as non-essential as they look, provide some of the key indicators of a person’s health. Experiencing symptoms such as pain, numbing, tingling, and burning sensations can be the markers of a person’s overall well-being, and can indicate further health problems such as arthritis, diabetes, injuries, and nerve problems that many would not notice at first. Our podiatry clinic focuses on working with you, and by diagnosing your conditions and analyzing your medical history, our office will focus on helping you feel better.

At Dr. Steber’s podiatry clinic, we treat a wide variety of foot and ankle conditions that affect millions of people every day. At our clinic, we believe in both non-surgical and surgical solutions, focusing on preservation and restoration as our primary focus for regular foot care. We believe that regular foot care can keep your feet healthy for a lifetime, and focus our mission and goals with patients in mind.

Some of the conditions we treat include:

  • Athlete’s Foot – A skin disease caused by a fungus, which commonly attacks the feet due to its humid and warm environment.

  • Arthritis – Defined by inflammation and swelling of the cartilage and joints, feet can most commonly have arthritis due to the 33 joints within the foot’s bone structure.

  • Bunion – An enlargement of the joint at the base of the big toe, causing the bone and tissues to move out of place.

  • Charcot Foot – Weakening of the bone and joint structure.

  • Corns and Calluses – Thickened skin that’s developed to protect the area from irritation.

  • Diabetic Foot – Today’s podiatrists play a key role in managing diabetes, as diabetic foot results from peripheral arterial disease.

  • Gout – A form of inflammatory arthritis caused by the buildup of uric acid.

  • Haglund’s Deformity – A bony enlargement of the back heel bone.

  • Hammertoe – A bending of the toe at the first joint of the digit, causing the toe to appear like an upside-down “v.”

  • Neuromas – A pinched nerve, or a nerve tumor, and is a benign growth between the third and fourth toes.

  • Plantar fasciitis – pain resulting from the plantar fascia muscle, the bend underneath the foot.

  • Peripheral Arterial Disease – PAD is the blocking and narrowing of the arteries in the legs when fatty plaque builds up.

  • Peripheral Neuropathy – The damage of the peripheral nerves in the toes and fingertips.

  • Sprains, Strains, and Fractures – Common injuries resulting from sports, causing pain and swelling.

  • Tendinitis – Inflammation of the tendons, where the Achilles tendon is the most common cause for foot and ankle pain.
