Tips from a New York Podiatrist: Heel Pain is No Laughing Matter

Posted by Dr. Jeffrey L. Adler

May 14, 2013 8:00:00 AM

If you’re at all familiar with the TV sitcom “Seinfeld” then you won’t have any trouble picturing Jerry’s classic white sneakers.  The show about nothing made us laugh at everyday occurrences we all experience, but never give much thought to. But did you know that when Jerry wore his white sneakers and made us laugh, he was definitely feeling anything but funny? In fact, he was feeling pain in his feet.

In a press statement on April 23 Jerry said “I have a hard time watching the reruns because I see the shoes on my feet and remember how painful that experience was.” Jerry was suffering from incredible heel pain, and had been for the past 30 years. He had tried various treatments, and nothing seemed to work. It wasn’t until he visited the New York College of Podiatric Medicine that he experienced relief.

Get Treatment for Your Foot Problems by Finding the Right Board-Certified New York Podiatrist

Many people simply do not give their feet much thought, care and attention unless faced with a problem. Often, going for an occasional pedicure, especially during summer, or cutting their toenails are as much attention as their feet get. It is only when a foot problem occurs that you might think of getting medical advice. Foot problems occur more often than you think, especially given the rise in lifestyle diseases like diabetes, backaches, sports injuries, as well as poorly fitting shoes and high heels.

4 Embarrassing Questions You're Afraid to Ask Your New York Podiatrist

Posted by Dr. Jeffrey L. Adler

Apr 11, 2013 6:20:00 PM

You can ask your New York Podiatrist anything!

Certain questions are difficult to ask a doctor. Some issues that pertain to your feet might be hard for you to inquire about, since feet generally aren’t a normal topic of everyday conversation. Some questions that you may be embarrassed to ask your Board-Certified New York podiatrist include:

1. Why do my feet smell?

The answer to this question is simple – sweat. When your feet sweat, they become a moist buffet for bacteria that feast on the oil and skin cells on your feet. Depending on the strain of bacteria, your feet may smell like corn chips, vinegar, ammonia or even rotten eggs. According to the Nemours Foundation, about 10 to 15 percent of people have feet that smell really bad due to their feet being extra sweaty. Those with excessively sweaty feet attract the bacteria Micrococcus sedentarius, which causes feet to smell like rotten eggs. Some medications and hormonal changes may contribute to your feet smelling, too.
