Mile Bluff Podiatry
Foot Care in Mauston
Have you been struggling with foot pain? Mile Bluff Medical Center’
podiatrists specialize in the study and care of the foot and ankle. They
diagnose and treat foot diseases, injuries and malformations. Your feet
withstand tremendous pressure and weight on a daily basis. They were built
to be tough, but like any other part of the body, they require care and
maintenance to continue working properly. Foot pain is nothing to take
lightly. If left untreated, it can make walking harder and prevent you
from living an active lifestyle, which can lead to additional health problems.
Comprehensive Foot Treatments to Keep You Moving Forward
Mile Bluff's podiatry team has experience performing surgeries, completing
exams, prescribing medications, treating sports-related injuries, prescribing
and fitting orthotics, and much more. Below you will find an overview
of some common conditions that can be treated with a podiatrist’s
Bunions – Bunions are abnormal growths over a joint in the toe caused by the big
toe leaning into and exerting pressure on the smaller toes. This growth
can make it painful to move the toes or even walk. In many cases they
can be treated with medication, but they sometimes require surgery.
Athlete’s foot – This is a fungal growth that causes an itchy, scaly feeling in
between the toes. Stubborn cases of athlete’s foot will need to
be treated with prescription anti-fungal agents.
Warts – Though warts are not usually painful, they can last for years, and many
people dislike the way they look and feel. A podiatrist can remove foot
warts and help to prevent other foot infections.
Foot and ankle arthritis – Arthritis is a condition that causes pain in the joints. Arthritis in the
feet or ankles can make it difficult to walk and live life without interruption.
Though there is no cure for arthritis, it can be treated to reduce pain
and improve quality of life.
Foot care for diabetes – For patients with diabetes, it is very important to care for the feet.
If sores, ingrown toenails or other issues go unnoticed or untreated,
infections can occur. Routine appointments with a podiatrist are very
important in the management of diabetes.
