The foot is a vital part of the body that enables mobility of individuals from one place to the other. Most individuals tend to take foot health for granted ending up to having difficulties in walking or even resulting to walking disability. The foot is prone to fractures and sprains that may happen anytime as one walks. When this happens, you need to have an immediate medical assistance or else you become lame. Shepherd is a foot care center specializing in foot pain relief led by Dr. Anthony LaMmara, a podiatrist with over 30 years’ experience treating patients suffering from both minor and major leg injuries.
Since our inception in 1991, we have carried out a thousand successful foot surgeries that have set record that we are the best podiatrists you can trust. Sprains may be seen as minor foot injuries but pose a significant bacterial threat to the muscles surrounding the affected area. We take this seriously and treat the strains with utmost professionality to ensure that the foot is not affected by the harmful bacteria.
Fractures can happen anywhere and can occur on the shaft or even on the phalanges. We detect the fracture and treat it immediately. In the case of major fractures, we have inpatient services that allow us to perform thorough analysis of affected parts and treat it accordingly. Other than this, we treat muscle and tendons problems and give a guide on how to maintain the tension on tendons and ligaments.
Some of the foot problems are caused by diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, peripheral artery disease among others. These diseases have a tendency of causing foot and ankle problems that if not diagnosed and treated in their early stages may cause severe injuries that may disable a patient. As a medical duty, we hold a patent to diagnose these diseases and provide treatment and guidance on how to prevent the diseases from causing severe foot problems.
The footwear you have plays a critical role in the health of your foot. Wearing balance-boosting footwear is a remedy to foot problems since most of the sprains and fractures are as a result of poor footwear selection. At Shepherd, we also offer minor procedures such as wart removals, skin biopsies, and ingrown nails removal. We accept various payment options including workers compensation and health plan insurance. Our services are client-oriented, and we are dedicated to giving prompt attention and committed to quality service delivery. Try us and watch your foot problems fly away.
