Almost anyone, from children to adults, can benefit from orthotics. Orthotics can alleviate many common foot problems that cause pain and discomfort in otherwise healthy people. An analogy can be made between orthotics and eyeglasses---both devices adjust problems that can impair physical function. In both cases, a physician (e.g., eye doctor or foot care specialist) performs a complete examination and then prescribes the proper amount of correction.

Diabetic Foot Care Specialists serving Bloomfield Hills

Unfortunately roughly 25% of Americans with diabetes will develop foot complications due to the disease. Diabetic foot conditions usually develop from a combination of poor circulation and neuropathy. Diabetics suffering from neuropathy can develop cuts, scrapes, blisters, or pressure sores that they may not be aware of due to insensitivity. If left untreated, these non-healing foot sores could even lead to gangrene and amputation. It is very important for diabetics to take the necessary precautions to prevent all foot related injuries and reduce the risk of serious foot conditions.

For over 20 years Medicare Plan B has helped to provide reimbursement for qualifying patients with shoe inserts and extra-depth shoes. There are many different medical experts who agree upon the fact that properly fitting footwear can help to prevent amputations. We recommend Dr. Comfort for custom footwear.

The Leading Heel Pain Foot Clinic near Bloomfield Hills

Chances are that if you're experiencing heel pain it could be attributed to the plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a ligament-like connective tissue that runs from your heel to the ball of your foot. If your foot moves incorrectly the plantar fascia may become strained and swell, causing plantar fasciitis. Possible treatments include medication, taping or splints, orthotics, and surgery.

If you do require surgery, Dr. Gross and Dr. Foreman are among the few surgeons who will perform a mini-incision surgery for this condition. Mini-incision foot surgery is a technique that allows our doctors to treat foot problems with instruments designed to work through smaller opening in the skin than traditional surgery. It minimizes pain, disability and recovery.
