  • Don’t Operate Your Own Personal Treatment Center, Part Two

    Don’t Operate Your Own Personal Treatment Center, Part Two

    Good day, Doctor Paul Betschart here, ready to talk to my friends in Danbury again today about some of the mistakes that people make by trying to treat themselves. Specifically, we are focusing on the condition known as bunions, which affects many people today. Many times people try to treat their bunions by using an ice pack. While this may help to relieve some of the swelling that develops from the protruded bone, it will not target the root cause of the issue that is causing the swelling in the first place. Misalignment of the entire big toe joint is the root cause of the problem.

    If you are dealing with a bunion, get it evaluated right away. I’d love for you to visit me, here at my office in Danbury. We have the most advanced treatments available, including the revolutionary Lapiplasty 3 dimensional bunion correction. Come on in for a consultation to see if it is right for you Call 203 791 0466 or visit www.danburypodiatrist.com

  • Suffering From an Ingrown Toenail?

  • Don’t Operate Your Own Personal Treatment Center, Part One

    Don’t Operate Your Own Personal Treatment Center, Part One

    Sometimes people try to treat their own foot pain, and play the role of both doctor and patient. Hi, I’m Doctor Paul Betschart, a podiatrist from Danbury, CT, and I would like to talk to you today about some of the mistakes that people make by trying to treat their bunions and other foot ailments by themselves. Many people use topical creams to help relieve their suffering; however, topical creams can never cure a bunion or any other foot ailment. They may bring temporary relief in helping to reduce redness or swelling, but the issue still remains.

    It’s best to allow a trained professional to look at your feet. I encourage you to come to my office here in Danbury and let me help. Give us a cal at 201 791 0466 or visit our website www.danburypodiatrist.com

  • How Flatfoot Affects the Entire Body

    How Flatfoot Affects the Entire Body

    Hello, this is Doctor Paul Betschart here, your local podiatrist from Danbury, CT. I would like to talk to you today about flatfoot and how it can affect the entire body. Most of us would assume that flatfoot only affects, well, the foot. Therefore, it may be surprising that it can affect other parts of the body. However, when an individual loses the support of their arch, weight is then shifted to other areas, such as the hips or knees. When the feet are not carrying a person properly, the rest of the lower body tries to make up for it. Consequently, the body feels a lot of pain because of the strain and misalignment. We have the most advanced diagnostic and treatment modalities available, including minimally invasive surgical approaches and custom foot orthoses

    If you are struggling with flatfoot, I encourage you to come see me, Doctor Betschart, at my office here in Danbury.

  • What causes plantar warts?

    Hello, this is Doctor Betschart, your favorite podiatrist in Danbury. In a previous post, we talked about plantar warts and how to identify them. Today, I want to tell you about what causes them. As surprising as it may seem, plantar warts are the result of the human papilloma virus, also known as HPV. HPV commonly grows in wet and warm areas, such as bathrooms and locker rooms and is contracted through cuts, abrasions and breaks in the skin. If you think that you might have developed plantar warts, it is important to see a foot doctor right away. We have the most effective and convenient treatments available. I encourage you to see me soon at my office here in Danbury. Call for a consultation 203 791-0466
