What Causes Bunions?

#AnchorageAK Hello, Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher here. Today, I would like to teach my friends in Anchorage who are suffering with foot pain about the deformity known as the bunion.
Some may wonder what causes a bunion in the first place. After all, a bunion is simply the protruding of the joint of the big toe. Bunions occur because of a misalignment of the toe, which is often triggered by improper footwear that causes cramping. However, it can also occur because of existing nerve conditions or Rheumatoid Arthritis.
It is important for those who suffer with bunions to seek a professional diagnosis of the root cause of their problem. I invite you to come to my office here in Anchorage and let me take a look.

Foot Pain: 33 Joints

#AnchorageAK Did you know that there are 33 joints in each foot?
Hi, I’m Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher, a podiatrist from Anchorage, and today’s blog is about — you guessed it! Joints!
Most people don’t think about the joints in their feet until something goes wrong. One of the most common diseases affecting the joints is the formation of bunions, in which the joint of the big toe protrudes due to extra bone forming. A painful fluid-filled sac may also develop near this area as well.
If you are suffering from pain in one or more joints in your feet, I encourage you to come see me, Doctor Rindlisbacher, at my office here in Anchorage.

The Connection Between Fungal Nail and Ingrown Toenails

#AnchorageAK Did you know that an ingrown toenail can develop out of a fungal nail condition?
Hi, I’m Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher and today, I would like to speak to foot pain sufferers in Anchorage about the connection between these two conditions.
Bacterial or fungal conditions can sometimes cause nails to thicken or widen, which may result in the nail curving down into the sides of the bed and puncturing the skin. When this occurs, you have in essence an ingrown toenail. To avoid these conditions, try to keep your feet as dry as possible at all times.
If you have fungal issues or have developed an ingrown toenail, I want to help you feel great again. Come visit me, Doctor Rindlisbacher, at my office here in Anchorage.
