Diabetic Foot Care

Why Is Diabetic Foot Care Important?

According to the American Diabetes Association, about 15.7 million people (5.9 percent of the United States population) have diabetes. Nervous system damage (also called neuropathy) affects about 60 to 70 percent of people with diabetes and is a major complication that may cause diabetics to lose feeling in their feet or hands.

Heel Pain

What causes Heel Pain?

Heel pain is one of the leading causes that patients visit Regina M. Smith, DPM to have treated. Plantar fasciitis (or heel pain) is commonly traced to an inflammation on the bottom of the foot. Dr. Smith can evaluate your arch pain, and may prescribe customized shoe inserts called orthotics to help alleviate the pain you are experiencing.

Ingrown Toenails

What is an Ingrown Toenail?

Ingrown toenails often are the result of trimming your toenails too short, particularly on the sides of your big toes. While they are very common, ingrown toenails can also be very painful. When trimming your nails, avoid tapering the corners so that the nail curves with the shape of your toe. The sides of the nail will curl down and dig into your skin.
