AVOID BATHROOM SURGERY FOR FEET STATES PODIATRIST
posted: Jun 14, 2014.
Podiatrist, Dr. Elizabeth Kurtz and spokes person for the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) states, "healthy feet are important for feeling good and staying active. So, if you neglect your feet, that can lead to unnecessary pain and other foot problems. Don’t attempt to self-treat painful foot woes. I see many patients who have attempted what I call bathroom surgery, and they’ve made the problem worse,” says Kurtz. Any pain, redness, swelling, or discoloration that persists should be checked out by a podiatric physician. Usually the problem can be cleared up with prescription medicine or a minor in-office procedure. Allowing a doctor to take a look will help prevent minor problems from becoming major ones."
