A study published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Research in December 2017 reported that foot pain is a common phenomenon in America. Approximately 25% of adults report that they experience frequent foot pain. It further reported that one in every six adults over 50 years old suffer from symptomatic foot osteoarthritis. Moreover, the report indicated that foot pain is connected with other joint pains and a lower quality of life where health is concerned.
“Most people ignore foot pain, assuming that it isn’t something to be concerned about,” Dr. Wishnie remarked. “Others are totally unaware of preventative and curative foot care. Sadly, if foot pain is not properly managed, you could ultimately require surgery to resolve it. Fortunately, you don’t have to go through surgery to have your feet restored to perfect health. Better still, foot care can alleviate these problems before they show up.”
Foot and ankle injuries come in many forms and have several causes. The most common ones are those that result from sports injuries. On the other hand, diabetes is a major cause of many foot problems. Nevertheless, any injury should be treated with utmost concern so that it doesn’t deteriorate into a worse condition.
Dr. Wishnie offers podiatrist services, including preventative and curative foot care. There are painless treatment options that are effective in treating many common foot problems. Some of them include laser therapy, cryotherapy, and special shoes for diabetic patients.

Kristen V., one of the patients treated at Family Foot and Ankle Specialists said in a review, “Dr. Wishnie is the most caring & thorough Doctor I have ever been to. His staff is friendly and helpful. I have been suffering for over a year with plantar fasciitis in my left foot and have been to several doctors. I am now pain free and was given a plan with several different regimens including wearing orthotics and a night splint. I would highly recommend Dr. Wishnie and his staff for anyone in need of expert care and advice!”
