Reasons You Might Need A Chicago Podiatry Office

May 26, 2008
You may never have even heard of a podiatrist until today, when suddenly your primary care physician referred you to one, or you found yourself looking online for a foot doctor and learned that they are called podiatrists.

There are a lot of reasons that one might find themselves needing a Chicago podiatry appointment. From the mundane to the extreme, the chronic to the urgent, so many hazards can befall the foot. Here are just a few of the things podiatrists can help patients with:

Injuries and trauma. The lower extremities can become injured in many different ways. There can be a sports injury that results in a twisted ankle. Someone can step on a nail and find themselves far more attached to the deck than they thought they were. A walk across a bed of coals can go in a very unfortunate direction. You can be doing a fierce pogo in a dance club mosh pit and land wrong. All of these severe one time incidents can be treated in a Chicago podiatry office.

Diabetic care. The feet of a diabetic individual have special problems that are not present in the average healthy patient. These can include circulation issues, sores, and calluses. Your podiatrist can give you advice for how to treat your feet differently if you have diabetes.

Worker compensation issues. Your feet are there with you when you are at work as well as at home, and sometimes an injury can befall them while you are on the job. Podiatrists can take care of this sort of injury in their office. You do not necessarily need to visit an emergency room, although if the limb is in any way threatened you certainly should. However, for a routine treatment, you can submit worker compensation paperwork through the podiatrist.

Foreign bodies. The splinter you were so sure you would not get if you took your shoes off for that walk down the wood stairs to the beach. That glass that slipped out of your hand and hit the kitchen floor right next to your toe. The above mentioned deck nail. There are lots of types of foreign bodies that you can find have imbedded themselves in your foot, and a podiatrist can help you take care of them.

Whatever needs your feet may have, if you are in the Chicago area, a podiatry office is near you and standing by to keep you dancing in the streets.
