Realities of Foot Pain, Discomfort and Treatment Avoidance
The reality of your foot discomfort or pain is this: it needs treated properly or else the pain and its problem source will amplify and worsen. Not only that, if you are dealing with a medical issue that your wounds are a result of, such as Diabetes, it is only more imperative that you seek the help of the Beaver Valley Foot Clinic, ASAP.
“My problem began as a blister on the ball of my right foot; and I really didn’t think much about it until it started bleeding. Eventually, it got infected and began leaking fluid, so I went to my primary doctor, who put me on antibiotics, which didn’t help.
In the meantime, as the owner of a pizza shop, I still had to work 14 to 15 hours a day, spending most of that time on my feet. So, at one point, I decided to try drying my feet by putting them up by an electric heater; but, because my diabetes has affected the nerves in my feet, I couldn’t feel how hot it was, and I ended up with burns and blisters on my toes.
So, I went to Dr. Tina, and she’s working miracles with a treatment that started healing very rapidly. In fact, I was surprised at how fast the skin on my toes started growing back; and she’s also successfully treating the original wound on my foot with a very effective antibiotic. Dr. Tina is really doing a fabulous job, and I have a lot of respect for her!” ~Dennis Vish
We Also Help with Diabetic Ulcers & Wound Care
We even specialize in diabetic wound care. Diabetes is a metabolic disease that effects how the body uses and produces insulin. Effecting millions of people each year, it also ranges in severity depending on the individual. Some diabetes suffers may develop diabetic ulcers, which are open sores that form when pressure prevents blood flow to the skin. Specifically, with diabetes-related wounds, when left untreated by podiatrists and wound care nurses , these pressure wounds (or ulcers) can go from painful, to limb-threatening.
Find Relief, All-Around, with Our Beaver County and Pittsburgh Foot Specialists
General wound care centers can often be very expensive, causing you to prolong wound care and treatment. But let neither foot pain nor the worry of receiving an expensive medical bill, keep you off of your feet. Similar wound care can be coordinated in our offices for a fraction of the cost. Also keep in mind that our doctors of podiatry, because of the specialty, are often the best trained physicians to treat your pain and care for your wounds.
“I have a condition called Venous Insufficiency, which prevents blood from getting to the veins, causing tissue to break down, and leading to ulcers and sores, which, because of the poor circulation, heal so slowly that, at times, I’ve had them last for six months. Dr. Tina has been treating me for these ulcers for awhile; but, many times, while the wounds appeared to be healing on the surface, they didn’t go away completely. But, because she never gives up on searching for newer, better treatments, she’s now using a medication that, besides greatly accelerating the healing process for my wound, has healed it thoroughly.
This has made such a big difference in my life, because I used to have to have my leg – or legs – bandaged all of the time, sometimes for days, so just taking a shower was a big hassle. Even worse, the ulcers would sometimes seep right through my Unna boot (a light, medicated bandage that forms a soft cast) to my clothes, which was very unpleasant, especially when I was out in public.
So, this has improved my life tremendously; but, more than just the process and the medication, it’s Dr. Teimouri herself. A lot of doctors come into the room, get some information, treat you, and that’s it; but with her, it’s like talking to a friend. In fact, it’s almost like your next door neighbor is dropping by to see how you are, but then she treats you, too! She’s immensely caring and compassionate.” ~Paul Strano
