What
We Do

Podiatry

Podiatrists are the first line of defense in foot care. The unique combination of podiatry within an orthopaedic surgical practice allows early intervention in foot and ankle care in an advanced medical setting. SportsMed is North Alabama’s only medical/surgical practice to include podiatry care providing patients with a conservative, preventive foot care plan. When painful feet prevent a patient from wearing shoes or walking normally, there is a reason. SportsMed podiatrists may suggest medical tests, such as x-rays, to determine bone deformities, spurs, or stress fractures. Other in-house diagnostic procedures such as an MRI, which helps identify soft tissue damage and doppler tests, which are useful in measuring blood flow to the foot, are evaluation tools that will assist in proper diagnosis.  Blood tests can be used to detect medical conditions such as infection, diabetes, arthritis, or anemia, which can contribute to many foot disorders. Our podiatrists can provide treatment options for calluses, hammertoes, bunions, ingrown toenails, heel pain, and many other common foot disorders.
