Podiatry Care: Keeping Your Feet Happy

Up until four months ago, I suffered from chronic foot and ankle pain. No matter what I did to ease my pain, my feet and ankles continued to hurt. Finally, I asked my primary doctor for a referral to a podiatrist. Although I love my primary doctor, they simply couldn't treat my foot and ankle pain successfully. I needed to see someone who could. My podiatrist examined my condition and determined that I had poor blood circulation and swelling in my feet and ankles. My podiatrist prescribed special cushions to wear in my shoes to help my blood circulate better and a change in my diet to reduce the fluids in my body. Now, my feet and ankles feel wonderful. If you have pain in your feet, ankles or legs, read my blog about podiatry care, treatments and much more. Thanks for reading.
