Ankle & Foot Care Clinic Serving Western Montana
Over 25 Years of Helping Western Montanans Get Back on Their Feet
Your feet let you cover thousands of miles in a lifetime. It’s estimated that the average person walks about 115,000 miles in a lifetime which would take you around the earth four times! Think about all the places your feet have taken you…hiking the Western Montana mountain trails, down the wedding aisle, through the work day, and the thousands of other activities and moments that you enjoy every day. Yet, we rarely think about our feet unless they’re hurting or appear to have a problem. That’s when Ankle and Foot Care Clinic can help get you back to the life you enjoy.
Ankle and Foot Care Clinic offers a comfortable office experience with the goal of making sure you have the knowledge and information needed to make good choices about your ankle and foot care. Dr. Sherick and Dr. Reed are highly trained podiatrists (podiatric physicians) who specialize in treating a wide range of foot and ankle disorders.
What is a Podiatrist?
Information About Podiatrists and the Foot Ailments and Disorders They Treat
A podiatrist or podiatric physician (Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM)) is a health care professional with extensive training that focuses on the foot, ankle, and related body systems in addition to one’s overall health. After obtaining an undergraduate degree, the podiatric doctor spends four years in a college of podiatric medicine to obtain a doctorate degree. They then further their education in a post-graduate surgical residency program at an approved hospital or university. Additionally, after receiving their doctorate degree, each podiatrist must pass national and state examinations in order to be licensed by the state in which he or she will practice.
The podiatric physician cares for people of all ages including bunions, heel pain/spurs, hammertoes, neuromas, ingrown toenails, warts, corns, calluses, sprains, fractures, infections, and injuries. Podiatric surgeons are certified by the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, once he or she has successfully completed a credentialing and examination process and has demonstrated knowledge of podiatric surgery. This includes the diagnosis of general medical problems and surgical management of foot diseases, deformities, and trauma of the foot, ankle, and related structures.
The doctors at Ankle and Foot Care Clinic have had extensive training in all areas of foot, ankle, and leg ailments and continuously update their knowledge.
