We provide treatments for any and every condition of the lower leg, ankle, and foot. We are determined to get you feeling back to normal, and potentially better, with our efficient staff here at FAASNY. Bunions are one example of a condition that we are able to treat (otherwise known as Hallux Abductovalgus). Most people describe a bunion as a bump on the side of the big toe, but it is more complex. The bump may be the only visible change, but the bones in the forefoot are misaligned. The big toe leans toward the second toe, or even move all the way under it. The skin on the bottom of your foot may become thick and painful, as bunions are progressive. They begin with the shifting of the big toe, gradually changing the angle of the bones over the years and slowly producing the characteristic bump. Symptoms usually appear at later stages of the deformity.
We also treat Athlete’s foot (Tinea Pedis). Athlete’s Foot is caused by several types of fungal organisms. People often experience an itching sensation, cracking, peeling, or scaly skin. Athlete’s foot often commonly present in the space between the toes but can be more widespread and even cause blistering. These are just two of the many conditions we treat here at FAASNY.
