When you need treatment for foot and ankle conditions in the San Francisco Bay community, the office of Yuko Miyazaki, DPM is ready to help. We provide treatment for a wide array of medical issues, including those that cause heel pain or have happened as a result of sporting injury. Our office is committed to comprehensive foot care, but some of the general areas we focus on include:
The term “arthritis” literally means “joint inflammation.” For many people, this is thought of as simply a condition that happens as the body becomes older and starts to wear down. Whereas there is a certain grain of truth in this, arthritis is one of over 100 conditions that can cause pain and swelling in a joint. With regards to foot health, common arthritic conditions include osteoarthritis, gout, post-traumatic arthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
As your child develops, you are sure to be aware of any condition that doesn’t seem right. We are your allies in ensuring that your son or daughter will be just fine in the long run. Some of the common issues that you may observe, or hear about, include flatfoot, Sever’s disease, intoeing, and hyperhidrosis. We will diagnosis any pediatric foot condition and provide the gentle care and treatment your child needs.
One of the important services we provide for our Bay Area patients is diabetic foot care. Individuals who live with diabetes must perform an array of measures to successfully manage the disease, and this includes making sure that foot issues are prevented or at least treated in early stages to reduce the risk of serious medical complications. We can help you or your loved one create an effective diabetic foot care plan and will provide the treatment necessary to promptly address any issues that arise before they become critical.
Living an active lifestyle is important for your health. The unfortunate reality of physical activity is that there’s always a certain degree of injury risk, especially for your feet and ankles. Sprains and fractures are common injuries, and Dr. Miyazaki is experienced in providing effective treatment plans for patients who suffer from them.
There are various reasons that toes can become deformed (inherited structure, footwear, etc.), but our practice is always here to assist you when bunions or hammertoes develop. We offer an array of treatment options, both conservative and surgical in nature, to help you find relief from any pain, discomfort, or impaired function you experience on account of these conditions.
Many different conditions can cause heel pain, but some of the more common include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, Sever’s disease, and even stress fractures. Fortunately, most sources of heel pain are treated successfully with the use of nonsurgical methods.
Having healthy skin and nails is about more than just looking good – it’s about feeling good and being healthy as well. Common skin conditions such as athlete’s foot and plantar warts are easily treatable. Ingrown and fungal toenails can also be fixed with professional treatment.
Some of the common sports injuries we see in our patients include sprained ankles, stress fractures, and Achilles tendinitis. When you are hurt in the field of play, while running, or in any physical activity, the office of Yuko Miyazaki, DPM offers services to get you back on your feet in no time.
It is important to care for your feet at every stage of life, but foot care takes a heightened importance as you become older. Circulation slows down, you lose natural cushioning, joints can become stiff, and years of use simply add up. For these reasons, there are several conditions Dr. Miyazaki tends to see more frequently in elder patients. No matter the problem, be sure to request an appointment for professional diagnosis and treatment.
