As a teacher, I am on my feet for a good portion of the day. At the end of the day, the balls of my feet felt as though I was walking on shards of hot glass. After a few Laser treatments, the sensation started to subside and my feet became much more comfortable to walk on. The pain lessens with each treatment. I am happy to say that I even walked nine holes of golf for the first time in a year
I am writing to thank you for your help over the recent months with my toe infection. I am so pleased with the results and the overall experience. It was relatively painless and there was no down-time or recovery time! Every appointment offered me significant improvement. The laser treatments were the safest and easiest medical choice for me and I am so glad I did not have to undergo surgery.
I want to thank Doctor Fosdick for the pain relief I am having. My feet feel much better. I also want to thank his staff for following up with the insurance company and getting them to pay partially for my orthotics as they initially said they would.
Wearing footwear with a constricting toe box can lead to overlapping toes. Another common cause is bunions, usually found in adult women. Overlapping of the fifth toe may occur among children and can be easily corrected. Painful corns and inflammation are common symptoms of overlapping toes. If this condition is left untreated, it can cause extreme irritation and interfere with the normal function of your foot.
Treating Overlapping Toes
Dr. Fosdick can recommend shoes that accomodate toe overlap so that the condition is less painful while corrective measures are applied. Dr. Fosdick can also prescribe gel toe straighteners, gel toe caps and toe combs to help to bring the toes back into line. In more extreme cases, surgery may be the only option.
Your feet should be pain free.
