If you have foot pain, a podiatrist can help. Very few people are actually born with foot problems. It is a lack of education, awareness, and proper care (including wearing shoes that don't fit) that create problems or make them worse.
Your feet are amazing and very complex! Together, they contain a quarter of all the bones in your body. Each foot has 26 bones, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles, and many tendons and blood vessels. Despite their complexity, it isn't "normal" for your feet to hurt. But over 75% of Americans still experience some sort of foot-related discomfort1.
Feet reflect the body's general health. Arthritis and diabetes, as well as conditions affecting nerves and circulation, can show early symptoms in the feet. Discomfort or sores on your feet can be your first sign of a more serious medical problem.
Podiatry is the medical specialty focused on leg health below the knee. This includes the toes, foot and ankle, and lower leg. Podiatrists provide diagnosis and treatment of all bones, muscles, and connective tissue (tendons, ligaments, and fascia) in the lower legs.
Make an appointment to get your feet checked by the team of foot doctors at ARC Podiatry.
Your ARC Clinical Team
Each of the ARC podiatrist is a highly specialized physician with both a DPM (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine) and FACFAS (Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons).
To put patient care at the center of our practice, we combine the coordinated-care and evidence-based care medical models. As partners in health with your primary doctor, we collaborate and communicate closely on your diagnosis and treatment. We provide nonsurgical treatment whenever possible, but sometimes surgery becomes necessary. We keep current on medical publications so that when surgery is needed, you get the most current, effective treatment available.
