Heel Pain in Austin, TX:
Contrary to popular belief, the most common cause of pain on the bottom of the heel is plantar fasciitis (inflammation of the plantar fascia at it’s insertion into the heel bone (calcaneous). Dr. Cherpack has proven treatments to resolve heel pain quickly.
Bunions/Hammertoes in Austin, TX:
Hammertoe is a deformity of the second, third or fourth toes. In this condition, the toe is bent at the middle joint, resembling a hammer. Left untreated, hammertoes can become inflexible and require surgery.
Bunions are misaligned big toe joints that can become swollen and tender, causing the first joint of the big toe to slant outward, and the second joint to angle toward the other toes.
Ingrown toe nails, plantar warts, nail fungus, skin cancer:
These are all common pathologies treated by Dr. Frank Cherpack in Austin, TX.
Diabetic wound care, Diabetic Shoes, and initial screening:
