Podiatry

The goal of the Podiatry Department at Westmed is to improve the quality of life for patients suffering from foot and ankle conditions. Our specialists partner with patients to develop a personalized treatment plan that will enable them to walk without pain, wear shoes comfortably, participate in exercise and leisure activities, and prevent serious complications, such as wounds or amputation.

Custom Orthotics

If you are experiencing persistent foot/lower leg pain or have noticed some painful changes to your feet, orthotics might be the first line of defense in providing relief. You should check with your podiatrist to see if this might be an option for you. If orthotic inserts are recommended, Westmed works with local vendors to measure and outfit patients. Our podiatry department offers a full line of custom-molded orthotics that are made directly from a scan or cast of your feet. We also provide braces for pediatric patients when needed.

Orthotics can be very helpful for correcting an athlete’s gait and can help others with more common foot problems such as:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Bursitis
  • Tendinitis
  • Foot, ankle and heel pain
  • Shin splints
  • Arch pain
  • Flat Feet
