If you are experiencing foot pain that is affecting your ability to walk, exercise, run, work, or simply get from place to place, it’s time to visit a podiatrist. With the right care, you will be active again in no time. Dr. Tina Teimouri, a Board-certified podiatrist, has a convenient Chippewa Township location, and she can treat many foot problems using state-of-the-art, non-surgical procedures.
Common Foot Problems
- Heel Pain. Many of Dr. Teimouri’s patients come to her Chippewa office for heel pain. Some pain is centralized near the heel, which is likely caused by an inflammation of the Achilles’ tendon. If you have pain that’s running on the underside of your foot, that is Plantar Fasciitis, which people often feel when they first wake up in the morning. Although it may disappear during the day, it will return and cause more pain if it isn’t resolved. Dr. Teimouri uses a therapy called Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT), which uses low-energy shock waves to encourage healing in the foot.
- Corns and Calluses. When skin on your foot thickens over time, it causes corns (circular shapes) and calluses (wider, flatter shape). These can be painful, especially if given a chance to build up over the years.
- Bunions. If your big toe is turning in toward the smaller toes due to your shoes, you could develop a bunion. That occurs when the bone in your big toe turns outward and begins to rub on your footwear.
- Hammertoes. If you are wearing high heels or other shoes that cause your big toe or other toes to curl up, and you can’t move your toes to their correct position, you have hammertoe, a potentially painful condition.
- Diabetes and Foot Care. Type 1 diabetics often have nerve destruction in their feet. Coupled with poor circulation, that creates potentially serious problems in their toes and feet. Dr. Teimouri works with diabetics every day to ensure that their foot health is properly maintained.
Dr. Teimouri uses many non-invasive procedures to give patients relief from foot pain, but she also uses surgery on more severe cases of bunions, hammertoes, and other problems. She uses laser and radiosurgery to reduce swelling and improve healing time.
- Tattoo Removal. Tattoo removal services usually take many months—and sometimes years. Beaver Valley Foot Clinic in Robinson uses the r20 Technique, which allows tattoos to be removed in just a fourth of the regular time!
- Varicose Veins. When you develop small red or purple lines on your legs and ankles, chances are that you have varicose veins. Dr. Teimouri can zap those lines away in just 30 minutes using a non-painful procedure. Never be afraid to wear shorts again!
- Toenail Fungus. Your thickened, yellow toenails can be resolved using a laser that will painlessly kills the virus causing the fungus, and new nail will then begin to grow in.
