Heel Spurs and Plantar Fasciitis

#AnchorageAK Sometimes heel spurs and plantar fasciitis can be confused with each other.
Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher here, and today I want to speak to those of you in Anchorage who are struggling with foot pain about these common disorders.
A heel spur occurs when the plantar fascia muscle becomes so irritated that extra bone begins to form on the heel. Plantar fasciitis is the actual inflammation of the plantar fascia muscle. Both can be quite agonizing, but are very treatable.
If you are experiencing pain in your heel area, stop by my office in Anchorage so that we can properly diagnose the problem.

Corns and Hammertoes

#AnchorageAK I’m Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher, a podiatrist in Anchorage, and today I would like to discuss the foot disorder known as hammertoes.
Hammertoes can hurt all by themselves, since they involve the unnatural bending of the toe, but they hurt even more when they are accompanied by a corn. Unfortunately, corns often develop on toes that are bent, as the sock or shoe constantly rubs against the skin to create a corn on the top or side of the toe.
Thankfully, both corns and hammertoes are treatable, and we can help. Stop by my office here in Anchorage and let’s take a look!

Advice for Those in Ballet

#AnchorageAK Do you or someone you know spend your free time in dance activities such as ballet?
Hi, this is Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher, a podiatrist in Anchorage, and today, I want to speak to those of you in ballet about special precautions that should be taken with your feet.
When you wear ballet shoes, your feet are constricted to a very small space, while you are constantly putting them under pressure. Subsequently, you can develop blisters and calluses quite easily. Even more seriously, conditions such as sesamoids, plantar fasciitis, bunions, or hammertoes can also emerge.
Seeing a podiatrist should be a regular practice for those who are in ballet in order to avoid problems. I encourage you to stop by my office here in Anchorage, so that we can help.
