Our feet are more important than many of us think. They help keep us balanced and moving around. Podiatrists help to raise awareness about foot health for everyone, from the general public to government bodies and other health professionals. The health of our feet can give a good indication of our general health and even offer warning signs for some illnesses, as well as being linked to certain conditions. 

Some of the most common issues people have with their feet include:

Board Certification

Podiatrists have received the highest level of training and education. Podiatrists are either board-certified or board-eligible by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery. Podiatrists are required to take state and national exams and be licensed by the state in which they practice. At Feet First Foot Care LLC, our lead podiatrist, Dr. Adam Mucinskas, is board-certified in foot surgery by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery.

Foot Health Advocacy

  • Educate Yourself. You can read about many health conditions related to the feet, as well as information on how to keep your feet healthy. We even have a section on our website “Patient Education” to provide all of our wonderful clients with up-to-date information pertaining to various foot conditions.
  • Spread Awareness About the Importance of Foot Health. If you are passionate about advocating the importance of foot health, first educate yourself on topics, then share with your loved ones! Every week, we post new blogs on our website. Check them out and spread the word!
  • Learn To Maintain Good Foot Health. On our website, we share advice for experts on basic foot care guidelines for every age.

When To See a Podiatrist

If you or anyone you know is experiencing persistent foot or ankle discomfort, or if you notice any changes in the appearance of your feet, abnormal growth(s), experience an injury or have an underlying medical condition that affects your ability to function, it is time to see a podiatrist. Symptoms are sometimes obvious but other times not. If you are experiencing one or more of the above symptoms, call our Cromwell, Connecticut office at (860)-632-5499  to schedule an appointment with our board-certified podiatrist Dr. Adam Mucinskas.

There are so many types of foot and ankle conditions that can plague anyone, but, for most people, it’s difficult to really know about something before it directly or indirectly impacts their own lives. For those who have never experienced foot fungus in their lifetime, consider yourselves lucky! Foot fungus is one of those conditions that can be minor and hard to notice for a long time, especially because it doesn’t cause any discomfort until it’s left untreated and significantly worsens. Foot fungus can appear anywhere on your feet, most commonly on and around our toes. It can cause a subtle odor that can be noticeable to everyone but you! When it’s left to worsen, foot fungus can often spread to the toenails. This is where foot fungus then becomes toenail fungus.

In most scenarios, toenail fungus begins as a small area of discoloration on the toenail. This tiny spot can develop into something much more noticeable, however! As toenail fungus worsens, the affected toenail can become brittle, deformed, cause discomfort, and potentially become infected. When it comes to toenail fungus, a do-it-yourself method isn’t advised. If not carefully treated, toenail fungus can easily spread to other toenails or even other areas of your feet, causing discomfort and odor. What are the most important warning signs to look out for when it comes to toenail fungus?

  • Discolored toenails
  • A lifting nailbed
  • Deformity of the toenail
  • An unusual odor coming from the toes
  • Shoes with a worsening smell to them

Thankfully, there are several ways to treat toenail fungus. At Feet First Foot Care Specialists, Dr. Adam Mucinskas helps to treat toenail fungus in his patients. If you notice that your toes might be exhibiting some of these warning signs listed above, call us today at (860) 632-5499 to schedule your next appointment at our location in Cromwell, Connecticut.
