Custom Orthotics Relieve Foot Pain
The American Podiatric Medical Association estimates 77% of adults suffer from some type of foot pain. Uncontrolled pronation can cause foot pain, bunions, hammertoes and painful callouses. Prevent foot problems with custom orthotics. Like eye glasses, measurements and impressions of your feet are required. Shoe store "off the shelf" inserts are expensive and no substitute.
Diabetes and Your Feet
Diabetics have an increased risk of foot problems. When diabetics develop cracks in the skin, fungus toenails, thick skin on the toes (corn) or bottom of the foot (callous), it's important to see your podiatrist. To avoid problems check your feet daily and schedule a yearly diabetic foot exam.
Patients with diabetes, poor circulation, and joint replacements i.e. hip, knee, or ankle are at risk for foot infections. When having your toenails trimmed, you should avoid nail salons.

Asymmetry - If the mole is divided in half, the sides don't match.
Borders - Borders look scalloped, uneven, or ragged.
Color - There may be more than one color. These colors may have an uneven distribution.
Diameter – The mole is wider than a pencil eraser (greater than 6 mm).
