We know it can take some time to recover from the holiday season. All the shopping, meals, family visits, concerts, events, office parties, and finally New Year’s Eve (when we frankly don’t mind falling asleep by 10 PM!). Once the New Year rolls around, you just want some serenity. It’s deserved, but this downtime is also a great opportunity to address any stubborn foot or ankle problems you might be having. We encourage new patients to use the slower pace of winter as the time to improve the condition of your feet.
Some people go year after year living with pain from conditions such as plantar fasciitis, bunions, arthritis, and nerve damage. It just becomes “part of life” or is believed to be something that isn’t going to benefit from treatment. This is a way of thinking that not only robs you of your quality of life, but also can lead to problems growing even worse over time.
Even if a foot or ankle condition can’t be fully cured, there are many that can be managed to prevent further deterioration. These methods are often conservative, too. Surgery is not the only solution for bunions, for example. Orthotics and other measures can help many patients lead more comfortable lives without removing the protrusion.
There is no better time than now to find expert help for the foot, ankle, and heel pain that has been plaguing you for so long. The office of Dr. Kevin Powers is happy to accept new patients from Bloomington, Bedford, and surrounding areas. We even have our registration form available to download and fill out before your first visit, to save you time in the waiting room and allow us to get help to you all that much faster! Call us at (812) 333-4422 to schedule an appointment today and take the first new steps toward a better outlook for your feet.
