Diagnosing Foot Conditions

During your first visit to a CHMG podiatrist, your doctor will review your symptoms and medical history and physically examine you. Your physician also may recommend a diagnostic procedure, such as:

  • Digital imaging – Allows doctors to see within your foot, so you get the accurate diagnosis you need to receive recommendations for the most effective treatment
  • Doppler vascular exam – Checks for narrowed blood vessels that could cause foot ulcers or pain when walking
  • Lab tests – Examine a sample of blood or joint fluid
  • Neurosensory testing – Painlessly identifies damaged nerves

Comprehensive Treatment for Your Feet

Your CHMG podiatrist will make personalized treatment recommendations to get you back on your feet. Depending on your condition, your care plan may involve:

  • Diabetic therapeutic shoe program – Helps you choose shoes and inserts that reduce the odds of developing foot wounds
  • Extracorporeal pulse activation technology (EPAT) – Uses mild shockwaves to ease heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis
  • Foot surgery – Helps restore the use and appearance of your feet
