• 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
