There are numerous conditions that can affect the feet and ankles and a podiatrist is the best doctor to diagnose and treat this kind of pain. The Santa Fe Podiatrists at Foot and Ankle Associates have built this online library to help educate our patients on what the possible causes could be and to help you determine if you need to make an appointment with one of our four podiatrists. Once you determine you need podiatric care, make an appointment in one of our multiple locations in Northern New Mexico; Santa Fe, Las Vegas, Los Alamos, Taos and Raton.

Many diabetics suffer from nervous system damage, or neuropathy, resulting in tingling and eventually the inability to feel the feet or hands. Since diabetes decreases the blood flow within your body, many times your feet are not getting the blood circulation they need, and wounds take longer to heal. When your feet become numb, they are at risk for becoming deformed. Open sores may become infected. Charcot foot, a serious bone condition, can also occur, where the bones fracture and disintegrate, changing the shape of your foot. Since this is often painless, many patients don't realize that their foot has been deformed until after it happens. The doctors also specialize in diabetic shoes and other diabetes treatment options.
