Podiatry

When you have foot pain, it’s hard to think about much else. Foot and ankle problems can happen for any number of reasons—genetics, disease, your body’s biomechanics, injury, your lifestyle or just wearing the wrong footwear.

Talking with an Allina Health podiatrist can start you on the road to better, less-painful mobility. He or she can identify what’s causing you discomfort in your foot or ankle, and will work with you on a solution to get you back to healthier feet, ready to take you where you want to go in life.

What it is

A podiatrist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases or injuries of the foot and ankle. Allina Health podiatrists use the latest innovations in treatments and technologies to help you heal. While we always consider conservative, or non-surgical, treatments first, our podiatrists have extensive training in foot and ankle surgery.

Good for treating

The podiatrists at Allina Health treat a wide range of conditions involving the skin, muscles, ligaments, nerves, and bones of the foot and ankle. Some conditions we treat include:

  • tendon and ligament disorders
  • trauma/fracture care
  • old and new foot or ankle injuries
  • sports injuries 
  • arthritis
  • bunions
  • hammertoes
  • painful flat or high arched feet
  • heel pain
  • diabetic foot related problems
  • skin and nail related problems
  • ankle pain or instability
  • reconstructive foot/ankle surgery,  
  • heel pain, such as plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendon disorders
  • Pediatric foot problems.

What to expect

We take the time to listen to what you’re experiencing and how it’s affecting your life. We’ll make sure you understand all the treatment options and help you choose the right ones for you. Together, we’ll create a recovery plan that includes information on how to prevent further damage or re-injury.
