A podiatrist is a specialist for a wide variety of foot and ankle ailments, so you should call yours whenever you have pain or some other lower limb concern. Your feet are your foundation. They are designed to keep you standing and walking around without discomfort. Pain is your body’s way of warning you that something is not quite right in your lower limbs. Lumps, bumps, discolored skin or nails, and unusual changes in your feet aren’t normal, either, and should be investigated.
If something happens to your lower limbs and you’re questioning whether or not you should call your foot specialists, you should probably contact them, even if it’s only for more information. Our expert staff would be more than happy to answer your questions and help you determine what care you may need. At our office in Massapequa, NY, we care for everything from general foot check-ups and sports injuries to chronic fungal toes and pain from bunions. Don’t wait until you can barely walk to seek help. Contact Mark Gasparini, D.P.M., by calling (516) 804-9038 or using the website contact form.
