Why is it important to see a foot and ankle specialist?

All too often, people try to push through foot and ankle pain. What starts as a mild condition can then become a serious injury. Don’t ignore your symptoms. If you have persistent discomfort or find it hard to walk or put on shoes, see a foot and ankle doctor.

Regular foot exams are especially important for people with diabetes. Minor issues such as corns or calluses can turn into dangerous foot blisters and ulcers. Daily self-care and annual foot checkups can help prevent wounds, bone infections and other limb-threatening conditions. Learn more about our foot care for diabetes.
