Couple walkingOur feet are shock absorbers. One of the most conservative pain relievers is a well-fitting shoe insert that supports your body weight.

At the appointment, you can expect a thorough evaluation of your feet and lower legs, including how you walk (your gait) and the stress on your ankle joints. Are you prone to falling or spraining your ankles while playing sports, walking on uneven ground or at work? We can correct ankle instability and get you safely back in action.

To reduce the fall risk among seniors and others with brain health concerns, our podiatrists work closely with Ascension neurologists. Good foot care helps prevent serious injuries from falls and reduce stress on the back and knees.
