Mobility Is Something Most Of Us Take For Granted

Mobility is something most of us take for granted until it is compromised.

Nothing is more important to our overall mobility – especially knees, hips, and back – than the health of our feet.

Just ask anyone who has been limited by an acute or chronic foot problem how critical that mobility is. Because of how crucial healthy feet are to optimum mobility, we are often shocked by how long some people suffer with pain in one or both feet before seeking help. Unfortunately, suffering with pain for too long can lead to a long-term mobility issue.

We don’t take for granted how important our podiatry services are to the overall health and wellbeing of our patients. We see it as one of our core responsibilities to be “mobility keepers.”

That’s because lack of mobility is more than just a physical concern; it impacts mental health as well.

Mobility that has been compromised long-term has been linked to weight gain, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, and even depression.

Being able to comfortably walk, jog, golf, travel, and walk the dog are activities that require high-performing feet.

Correcting an ingrown toenail, eliminating plantar fasciitis, removing a bunion, and making orthotics are just some of the things we specialize in to keep our patients mobile.

When you aren’t as mobile as you want to be, whether due to a foot problem or another cause, it also impacts those nearest to you. That’s why we don’t just see ourselves as treating 2 feet and 10 toes – we’re treating our patients’ holistic physical and mental health.

We remain motivated to remind our community how important healthy feet are to overall health and well-being because we have seen the long-term consequences of neglect.

Let us help keep you optimally mobile for the long run. Reach out early on if you’re facing any foot issues you’d like help in addressing.
