When to see a Podiatrist?

It’s a good idea to see a podiatrist if you have any persistent pain, discomfort, or other symptoms in your feet or ankles that you’re unable to manage on your own. Here are a few examples of when you should consider seeing a podiatrist:

  • If you’re experiencing persistent heel pain, especially if it’s affecting your ability to walk or stand.
  • If you have an injury to your foot or ankle that doesn’t seem to be healing on its own, or if you suspect you may have broken a bone.
  • If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes, arthritis, or nerve problems that is affecting your feet.
  • If you have a deformity such as a bunion or hammertoe that is causing pain or difficulty walking.
  • If you’re experiencing numbness, tingling, or weakness in your feet or ankles.
  • If you’re having trouble finding comfortable shoes that fit properly
  • If you’re experiencing blisters or calluses that are painful or make it hard to walk.

It’s also important to see a podiatrist for regular check-ups if you’re at a higher risk of foot problems, such as people who have diabetes or peripheral artery disease, or if you’re a runner or other athlete.
