We are proud to announce that we have successfully opened our 3rd location of Frederick Foot & Ankle! I am sure if you have taken a stroll down Thomas Johnson Drive you have seen the new office. But you can’t see much from just a drive by… So we thought we would host a Grand Opening Party, at the new location to invite all of our current and possible new patient to visit and take a tour of our new diggs! The Grand Opening this Saturday, November 15, 2014, from 11 am – 4 pm at 141 Thomas Johnson Drive Suite 170 Frederick Md 21702! Key 103 will be on site providing music. There will be games and prizes and one lucky attendee with win a new ipad!
If you are new to our podiatric practice don’t worry we don’t bite, come on out to meet our fantastic doctors and learn about what we treat, from warts, plantar fasciitis to ankle sprains.
Plantar Warts are very common in the summer time and in children. Plantar warts are caused by a virus and can spread easily from person to person; or even one area of the body to another area. For example, if you had a plantar wart on your foot and you touch it with your finger, your finger might show some signs and symptoms of an early stage wart, sooner than later! Gross huh?! We have plenty of treatment options to take away your plantar wart woes!
Plantar Fasciitis is equally as common in males and females in our adult patient population. It might come from change it exercise routine, daily activities or even weight loss or weight gain. This pesky problem of plantar faciitis is that it is a cyclic disease process, if you don’t cure the underlying causes and just treat the symptoms this will be a life long problem! That’s why at FFA we try to nip it in the bud, and treat early with a multitude of treatment options from stretching, icing regiment, physical therapy, temporarily bracing, to orthotics!
Ankle sprains are common all year round, most often occurring in our athlete patient population.Most ankle sprains are from some sort of sporting injury, chronic or acute. If you constantly are spraining your ankles as a child athlete, that could lead to ankle instability, in adulthood. You can either sprain the medial or lateral aspects of your ankle, meaning you can damage the different ligaments that help stabilize your foot and ankle together during stance and gait. We like to treat our ankle sprains in with a multitude of treatment options ranging from taking away the soft tissue swelling with icing and manual modalities, then we would like to add supportive bracing with strengthen exercises. And with this regiment and some other treatment options your ankles can feel as good as new!
From the whole FFA family we hope to see you on Saturday, November 15, from 11- 4pm!
