Winter Is Best Time for Preventive Foot Care
Jan 02, 2020 06:42PM
Podiatric physician Dr. Juliana Paternina, of Foot and Ankle Premier Specialists, says, “Our feet rarely get a break from the daily grind, yet like all body parts, they need regular maintenance if they’re going to serve us well into old age.” She suggests taking advantage of the winter months to seek preventive care so that when spring comes, we can enjoy outdoor activities pain-free.
At her offices in Hoboken and Bloomfield, Paternina provides diagnoses, including X-rays, and treatment for patients of all ages using the latest technology and expertise. Among the problems she treats are fractures, sprains, heel pain, ingrown toenails, arthritis, bunions, neuromas, hammertoes and other pediatric foot conditions.
She can help forestall problems with preventive treatment; guidance on footwear (including shoes for diabetic patients and custom-molded orthotics provide); and provide strategies for avoiding common sports injuries such as plantar fasciitis, plantar fasciosis, Achilles tendinitis, Achilles tendon rupture and ankle sprains.
The initial visit is free (excludes X-rays or treatment). Her office accepts most insurance plans and can accommodate late and Saturday appointments. Walk-ins are welcome.
