By age 70, the average person will have walked the equivalent of 4 times around the globe.

That is a lot of walking! Our feet and ankles are amazing parts of our body considering how complex they are and the amount of work they do, and to keep them at their best, they deserve proper care and attention. If you are having difficulty with your lower leg, foot or ankle, a podiatrist – a doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM) — can provide the needed medical treatment and surgery to help you heal.

Caring for Your Feet

Injuries or conditions affecting the foot or leg can result in disabilities, making it difficult to walk. Over 75% of Americans will experience foot health issues in their lifetime, including severe foot pain that can make it difficult to work or to go about their day.

Seeking care for foot problems early can help prevent more serious problems from developing. If you are experiencing foot or ankle issues, we can help. At Lakeland Regional Health, we take the time to get to know our patients and work with them to develop the best treatment plan for their needs.
