Our Country Foot Care office in Williston Park is centrally located on Willis Avenue, close to Hillside Avenue. Like our other two offices in Mineola and Patchogue, our Williston Park office is a pleasing combination of up-to-the-minute techniques, skilled, compassionate podiatrists, and an atmosphere of neighborly congeniality. Our doctors are focused on your particular needs, always prepared to treat a complete range of foot conditions, ranging from everyday problems like foot odor to complex congenital conditions to injuries requiring surgical care.
Why Come to Country Foot Care?
If you are like most people, you probably spend a great deal of time on your feet. You may have worsened the situation by wearing shoes that are stylish but not supportive or by gaining weight. It is also possible that you are burdened by a hereditary tendency toward bunions or a congenital defect of the foot or ankle. Perhaps you exercise without proper stretching beforehand. Whatever the cause of your difficulty, most patients come to Country Foot Care in Williston Park with feet or ankles that are painful and interfering with their quality of life. If you are experiencing such difficulties, when you come to Country Foot Care, you are coming to the right place.
What Conditions Do Country Foot Care Doctors Diagnose and Treat?
At our Williston Park office of Country Foot Care, we diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions, including:
- Ankle pain, bruising, swelling, or limited range of motion
- Foot odor
- Fractures of a toe or a small bone of the foot
- Heel, arch, or top of the foot pain
- Ingrown toenails
- Plantar fasciitis
- Toenail fungus
- Turf toe
At Country Foot Care our podiatrists are adept at administering diagnostic procedures. They want to make sure that, by the time they make treatment recommendations, they have as much precise information about your physical situation as possible.
Country Foot Care’s Diagnostic Procedures
Before doing anything else, our doctors perform a hands-on physical examination of your feet and ankle, testing for pain, sensitivity, flexibility and range of motion. Once they have done this, depending on their findings they may use one of several technological diagnostic procedures. While X-rays will help them examine your bones, ultrasound will assist them in diagnosing soft tissue damage. If you are diabetic, they will also administer vascular tests to check your circulation. When they suspect a tissue abnormality, such as a fungal infection or a skin cancer, they may take scrapings of nail or tissue for microscopic examination or biopsy.
When Home Remedies Don’t Work on Podiatric Problems
At Country Foot Care, our doctors try conservative methods first. Home remedies, most commonly RICE, which stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation, may sometimes be sufficient to treat minor injuries. RICE can be successful in relieving pain and reducing swelling and inflammation. Nonetheless, more serious injuries and conditions require more advanced treatment.
Our doctors at Country Foot Care in Williston Park have found that topical and even oral medications are frequently insufficient to get rid of toenail fungus. For this reason, we offer laser therapy for fungal nails. Similarly, foot pain can be hard to treat with medication alone, even when administered by injection. For this reason, our doctors now use Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) for persistent foot pain and have found it to be quite effective. Of course, there are cases where surgery is necessary to restore mobility and full function to the foot or ankle.
Which surgeries are commonly performed by Country Foot Care podiatrists?
Our highly qualified podiatrists are capable of correcting many conditions through surgical intervention, including:
- Hammer toe surgery
- Neuroma surgery
- Tendon surgery
Minor surgical procedures are performed in our Williston Park office. More serious and/or complex operations are performed at a local surgical center or at Winthrop Hospital.
