Learn How Sweet Your Feet Can Be

PRESENTED BY ASSOCIATED PODIATRISTS

If your heel moves too much or too little, it can cause other parts of your foot to function incorrectly. Over time, stress from poor foot function can stretch or tear the ligaments or tendons in your heel. Treatment goals for these problems include reducing abnormal pull on the ligaments and tendons.

Please join Dr. Satooj from Associated Podiatrists in North Haven for a discussion on common foot pain and problems. Our philosophy is to help educate people to have the necessary information to make good decisions regarding their foot and ankle health. The main topics will include heel pain, athletes foot, and nail fungus, while any other questions you may have will be addressed.
