If you are experiencing any issues with your feet or ankles, your primary care doctor might suggest that you visit a podiatrist because you need further evaluation. However, you can also choose to visit with a podiatrist on your own.
If you have noticed any changes to your feet, ankles, or toenails, it is a good idea to get evaluated. Sudden changes in your range of motion and sudden discomfort need to be taken seriously. Ingrown toenails, thickened toenails, and other issues can lead to worse problems without treatment. Additionally, you should contact our office if you have injured your foot or ankle during physical activity, just to be sure that you don’t require surgical intervention.
