We offer a full array of services at Alpine Foot and Ankle Clinic, each with the goal of helping you maintain healthy feet, find comfort, and improve your quality of life. Read on to learn more about how our Montana podiatrist can serve your foot and ankle needs.
Diabetic Foot Care
If you live with diabetes, your feet need special attention. Painful nerve damage stemming from the condition can make it difficult to detect injuries and leave your feet prone to infection. Receiving regular podiatric check-ups as part of your foot care regimen is a vital part of maintaining your foot health. We also provide diabetic shoes and insoles that can prevent injury and reduce the risk of complications.
Heel pain is a very common condition that can have several different causes, one of the most frequent being plantar fasciitis. Regardless of the source, heel pain is not “a normal part of life” and can be treated.
Sometimes little more than an irritating nuisance, ingrown toenails can become especially sore or infected if left untreated. Don’t delay if the area around your toenail becomes red or very painful. Ingrown toenails can also be permanently eliminated with a simple, in-office procedure.
Our state-of-the-art DIOWAVE Laser is a multi-talented piece of technology. For those with an unsightly fungal nail infection, it can effectively eradicate the fungus and allow clear, new nails to grow. For those with an injury or chronic pain, it can reduce discomfort and swelling while stimulating cellular repair. Sessions are quick, non-invasive, and virtually painless.
Orthotics (Custom Arch Supports)
Orthotics can provide comfort and pain relief for a variety of foot conditions, including flat feet, plantar fasciitis, and arthritis. Much more effective than a store-bought insert, we custom-make an orthotic to fit your specific foot shape and provide just the right amount of cushioning and balance you need.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional athlete or a “weekend warrior,” your feet and ankles can take a lot of force during activities and a sports injury is always a possibility. Ankle sprains, torn ligaments, shin splints and other painful soft tissue injuries fall under this category, but so do other conditions such as blisters, calluses, and athlete’s foot. Whatever the problem, we can help you get back in the game as quickly and safely as possible.
Every attempt is made to find conservative treatments for foot and ankle conditions. If these methods aren’t effective, surgery might then be considered as a means of relieving pain or regaining mobility. We take great care of our surgical patients through both the procedure itself and recovery.
