podiatrists in springfield vaMost people do not have a regular podiatrist and they only end up at the foot doctor when they sustain an injury. However, it is important to see a podiatrist if you have certain foot conditions, structural abnormalities, and of course if you are experiencing pain. So, if you’ve found yourself with recurring pain or are wondering if it's time to go to the podiatrist, our podiatrists in Springfield, VA, are here to answer your questions! 

When You Should Go

If you are experiencing regular pain in your foot, heel, or ankle, you should be examined by our podiatrist. Foot pain is not normal and can be a symptom of an underlying problem. Some symptoms you should see a podiatrist for include:

  • Pain in the arch when walking
  • Sores or ulcers on the feet
  • Pain from sustaining an injury
  • Swelling or hot feet
  • Bumps, calluses, or corns 

Predispositions For Foot Problems

Even if you are not experiencing foot or heel pain at the moment, you should check your feet for structural abnormalities. It is important to be aware of these, as well as conditions or lifestyle factors that can put you at a higher risk for foot problems, such as:

  • Pronated feet (flattened arch that meets the floor)
  • High-arched feet
  • Running frequently or participating in high-impact sports that can cause foot injury
  • Having diabetes or arthritis

If any of the above apply to you, it is a good idea to have a consultation with our podiatrist. 

Other Considerations & Checkups

For some people, prevention can help foot pain. For example, custom orthotics can be provided for people with flat feet or high arches to support the feet and avoid foot pain in the first place.

The elderly should establish a podiatrist and go for regular checkups, and it is recommended that individuals with diabetes are checked for signs of neuropathy or other diabetes-related foot issues.
