Enjoy life without foot and ankle pain...
"Went there yesterday for ingrown nail surgery.  Very relaxed & friendly clinic, which helped me great deal.  It was done very quickly, and the best part was minimal after surgical pain.  Go check this place if you have any foot and ankle problem."

Is Foot Pain Common? Absolutely.

Most of us stand an average of four hours a day and walk at least 5,000 steps. That puts a lot of stress on our feet and the hundreds of bones, joints, and muscles, and nerves that exist within them. In fact:


87% of Americans have suffered from foot pain in their lives

I have flat feet and have suffered from plantar fasciitis for years. I finally decided to seek help after the pain in both feet became excruciating to walk and stand. I was prescribed orthotics from a previous podiatrist and felt no relief. *Enter North County Foot & Ankle Specialists here* After meeting Dr. Avanti Redkar and complaining to her about my issues, she knew exactly what I needed. She immediately got me in for treatment and walked me through everything I would need to do to ensure I had successful long term effects. For the first time in over 20 years, I wake up and walk completely pain free. I had become so accustomed to living with the pain, I never imagined my life without it, until now. My only regret is that I didn't find Dr. Redkar sooner!

Common Podiatry Treatments

Flat Foot Treatment

If the entire sole of your foot touches the ground when standing, you have what is called pes planus, or flat feet. This condition can cause foot pain, especially in the heel or arch area. Our podiatrists can discuss treatment options during a visit to our Escondido, CA, office.

Flat Foot Before and After

Orthotics

Prescription orthotics cannot be rivaled by any over-the-counter alternative. True medical devices, custom orthotics are hand-made to conform to your foot and address your specific needs. If you stand for hours and have been let down by generic orthotics, discover custom orthotics.

Tendonitis

A common sports injury, especially in runners, tendonitis of the foot or ankle can make standing and walking painful. If left untreated, tendonitis can cause decreased mobility and instability when on your feet. By pinpointing the affected tendon, our podiatrists can develop an effective treatment plan.

Ingrown Toenail

When a toenail curves and grows under the skin of your toe, it is called an ingrown nail. Symptoms include chronic pain, irritated skin, and a foul odor caused by a bacterial infection. Trying to dig out or trim the nail yourself can make things worse. Contact our renowned podiatric surgeons for professional non-surgical or if needed, surgical treatment to relieve your pain.
