Relieve Tendonitis Pain
Tendonitis pain is one thing that keeps many people from participating in sports, as it tends to get worse after a workout. Whether you’re an avid runner or simply enjoy a brisk walk every now and then, tendonitis does not have to slow you down...
Sean C. Hodson, DPM, FACFAS will quickly diagnose your problem and provide you with a treatment plan that will have you up and running again in no time. Tendonitis will only get worse as time goes on, which is why you should seek treatment at the first sign of trouble.
The Dangers of Diabetic Neuropathy
Neuropathy is a condition whereby certain nerve endings fail to signal pain. When it occurs in the feet, it is known as peripheral neuropathy, and most often affects diabetics. In fact, it is a contributing factor to the high rate of amputation among diabetics.
If you’re a diabetic, it’s especially important to check your feet for signs of open sores or other wounds that do not heal, as they could lead to an infection that might eventually require amputation. You should also visit a Destin podiatrist on a regular basis for help in managing your peripheral neuropathy.
Relief from Ingrown Toenail
If you’re suffering from an ingrown toenail, wearing shoes can become extremely uncomfortable, as can walking or standing for any length of time. Some people are more prone to developing ingrown toenails than others are, particularly those with wide feet or athletes who regularly perform on hard surfaces.
Ingrown toenails are not only painful, but they can also become infected if they are not treated properly. Many times, removing a portion of the affected toenail is needed to provide relief, which is why our Destin and Fort Walton Beach patients who are suffering from ingrown toenails turn to White Sands Podiatry.
Discover your Source of Heel Pain
Heel pain can be caused by a number of things, ranging from injury to improper footwear. Treating heel pain yourself is often difficult to do, simply because it is hard to determine what might be causing it. That’s where White Sands Podiatry comes in, providing you with a thorough examination to diagnose your problem and develop a treatment plan for eliminating it.
We’ll also provide you with practical advice on how to manage your heel pain during the healing process. Don’t let heel pain get you down.
Say Goodbye to Bunions
When toes are misaligned, this can lead to bunions, which is an inflamed area near the joint of the toe that may also protrude outward. The shape of your feet along with a tendency to over pronate while running can leave you predisposed to developing bunions, which only tend to get worse as time goes on.
Treating bunions is done with the use of orthotics and/or having them surgically removed here in our office. At the first sign of a bunion, visit White Sands Podiatry for treatment in order to reduce swelling and inflammation so you can begin feeling better again.
Treating Toenail Fungus
Toenail fungus is one of the most common foot disorders, and is easily spread in public locker rooms or other areas where people tend to walk barefoot. This condition can result in discomfort and swelling, not to mention the fact that the affected toe may have an unsightly appearance.
There are few over-the-counter remedies that are effective at treating toenail fungus, as prescription-strength medicine is usually needed to eliminate it. For this reason, you should visit White Sands Podiatry if you notice dark nails, especially if they are also flaking and peeling. The sooner you seek treatment, the quicker you’ll be able to eliminate toenail fungus.
Get a Grip on Foot Pain

We can diagnose the source of your foot pain and come up with a treatment plan that’s just right for your unique situation, allowing you to get back to enjoying the things you love doing as quickly as possible.
