Conditions we treat at our Sacramento area practice include:
Heel and Arch Pain
Heel pain is something that can affect virtually anyone – young or old, male or female, athletes or nonathletes. In part, this is attributable to the fact heels sustain tremendous force loads during physical activities, including those featuring lots of running and jumping. These forces contribute to common sources of heel pain like plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, and Sever’s disease. Treatment options vary based on specific circumstances, but conservative care is effective for many cases.
Skin and Nail Problems
Optimal foot health includes being aware of issues that develop at the surface level, particularly in regards to skin and toenail problems. Some examples of these medical issues include fungal nail infections, ingrown toenails, heel fissures, blisters, athlete’s foot, and subungual hematomas. Our team offers an array of treatment options and can provide tips to prevent these issues from arising.
Hip and Joint Pain
McDowell Orthopedics & Podiatry Group is proud to offer effective orthopedic solutions for problems that cause hip pain and difficulty. Almost all joints have a certain degree of risk, but hip joints tend to be especially prone to painful conditions, including ones caused by arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, and hip fractures. If you experience pain or difficulty from any of these issues, contact our Carmichael office to request a consultation and professional treatment.
Neck and Back Pain
One of the more concerning forms of pain humans experience is spine pain from back and neck injuries and conditions. Even though the spine plays an essential role in the central nervous system, most worry isn’t necessary – as long as the issue is being addressed by a medical specialist. So, if you have back or neck pain, come see us for orthopedic treatment to resolve current pain and prevent the problem from worsening.
Frequent and severe shoulder pain can disrupt your normal activities and daily routine. In some instances, home care methods may be able to provide some relief. A better approach, however, is to visit one of our team members at McDowell Orthopedics & Podiatry Group for expert diagnosis and care. Doing so can help you return to your regular life – pain-free!
Nerve damage (neuropathy) happens for many different reasons, with diabetes being an especially common cause. You usually recognize neuropathic conditions because the burning, tingling, and electrical pain—or even numbness—differs from orthopedic pain. If you experience symptoms like those, you will benefit from the services at our McDowell Neuropathy Center, where we provide testing and treatment to address the root cause of the problem.
For optimal health, you need to eat well, get enough sleep at night, and perform physical activity on a regular basis. Now, exercise and sports certainly contribute to your overall wellbeing, but a body in motion always carries a certain degree of injury risk. No matter if your sports injury—or that of a loved one—is in a foot, ankle, shoulder, elbow, or any other joint in the body, our team can create a customized treatment plan for you.
Foot and Ankle Pain
We all rely on our feet and ankles for so much. When your lower limbs hurt or are not functioning correctly, there is clearly a problem that needs to be addressed. Conditions like arthritis, bunions, hammertoe, flatfoot, and others are best handled at the earliest possible stages – so contact McDowell Orthopedics & Podiatry Group as soon as you become aware of an existing or developing problem.
Hand and Wrist Pain
Pain in a hand or wrist (or both!) can interfere with your daily activities and take away your ability to perform certain exercises and sports. If this is a problem you are experiencing, come see us at our greater Sacramento office. Our orthopedic team is able to help many patients using nonsurgical treatment, so contact us today and go back to living life on your own terms!
Within the musculoskeletal system (your bones, muscles, and connective tissues), one of the more common issues people experience is knee pain. Many cases develop in response to increased physical activity, but there are other causes that contribute to making this such a widespread problem. No matter if knee pain is keeping you from exercise and sporting activities—or even just making it difficult to walk out to the mailbox and back—we can help you find the relief you need.
