Taking care of your feet is important, but it is not always necessary to see a foot doctor in order to do so – however, if you develop a problem, notice any strange symptoms, or experience foot pain and discomfort on a regular basis, then you should certainly seek the professional help of a podiatrist. For great comprehensive local care, you can visit us here at Ozark Foot & Ankle, PLC where we can provide you with a wealth of services such as bunion treatment in Fayetteville AR.

Bunions can vary from person to person and from case to case. In some circumstances, bunions may be genetic and certain individuals may be more likely to develop them because of hereditary qualities that they’ve inherited from their parents. This can also interact with other factors such as types of footwear (especially shoes with a narrow toe or a dramatic heel), general friction and pressure, other conditions such as cerebral palsy and Marfan syndrome, arthritis and more. Bunions are essentially deformities in the shape and function of the joint that connects the big toe with the rest of the foot. As this deformity develops, the joint may cause the big toe to point inward as the joint itself begins to drift outward. This deformity can lead to a dramatically pointed joint that juts out from the side of the foot, widening the shape of the overall foot in question as well. This can make wearing closed-toe shoes incredibly uncomfortable and in some cases impossible. Here at Ozark Foot & Ankle, PLC, our experts can take a look at your case and determine the best solution for bunion treatment in Fayetteville AR.

Foot pain can be caused by many different things. However, not all sources of foot pain are due to injury, and can be a result of a foot condition or deformity. Luckily, many foot conditions can be treated by receiving custom 72616 orthotics from Ozark Foot & Ankle, PLC.

For those patients with painful conditions such as flat feet, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, and neuromas, we offer 72616 orthotics. Our orthotics are the new generation of orthotics. They are shorter, narrower, and fully prescribed to your foot type and each foot and fit all shoe types. Our orthotics also improve balance and performance in addition to reducing stress up the posture to the lower back. Orthotic therapy works by aligning and supporting the foot or ankle, which can prevent, correct, or better accommodate deformities. This is done by slightly altering the angles at which the foot strikes a walking or running surface. Furthermore, orthotics improve the overall function of the foot or ankle, further treating an abnormal or irregular walking pattern.

At Ozark Foot & Ankle, PLC, we view the person as a sum of all the body parts. For example, we will not treat just the foot as a foot problem but we will address other aspects of the body which have a correlation. This allows us to treat the whole body, not just the foot or the ankle. We can treat the problem at the core, not just take away the symptoms of it. Your treatment may be as simple as custom 72616 orthotics. By making Ozark Foot & Ankle, PLC your destination for all your podiatry problems, you’ll be one step closer to having healthy and happy feet, ankles, and legs.
