Podiatry is a medical specialty focusing on the lower extremities. In the state of Florida, podiatrists evaluate, diagnose, and treat the lower leg (below the knee), ankles, and feet.
The Zimmermann Podiatry team is highly skilled in all of these areas, and their goal is to help you feel better quickly so you can live the lifestyle you want.
Podiatry is a wide-ranging specialty. Podiatrists provide preventive care and also treat sports injuries, chronic conditions, foot deformities, and every other problem that affects the lower leg, ankle, or foot. Some of the Zimmermann Podiatry team’s specialties are:
Bunions — bony bumps at the base of the big toe — cause stiffness, pain, and even difficulty walking if untreated. Bunions and hammertoes — permanent contractures in a smaller toe — frequently happen together.
Peripheral neuropathy is nerve damage that often affects people with diabetes. Together with circulatory issues, neuropathy is often a factor in nonhealing wounds.
Plantar fasciitis causes sharp heel and arch pain. Repetitive stress on the plantar fascia, the ligament spanning the bottom of the foot, is the main cause of this condition.
Plantar warts are tiny, hard warts, often occurring in clusters, that appear on the bottom of the feet. They’re caused by a virus that enters the skin through tiny cracks.
Ingrown nails usually occur in the big toes. They develop when one corner of the nail grows into the skin, and they can be very painful and possibly lead to an infection if they’re not treated.
Toenail fungus is a fungal infection that causes unhealthy changes in the affected nail. A fungal nail usually looks discolored, has an abnormal texture, and may start to crumble or break off.
Podiatry care focuses on healing. The Zimmermann Podiatry team understands that you want to get back to ideal health fast, and without invasive treatments. They use the most advanced conservative treatments to get you where you need to be, with wide-ranging options such as:
Surgery is available as a last resort — but most patients don’t need surgery to get back to good health.
