Have you been living with a painful foot condition for months? We can find a non-invasive way to treat your heel pain, neuroma, ingrown nails, bunions, Achilles tendonitis, and more. Click here for a full listing of our podiatry services.

Heel Pain

Our clinic has become a referral center for heel pain. We have developed a series of protocols that are highly effective at treating and resolving heel pain. We are often able to help patients that have already been to numerous other clinics. Heel pain is one of the most common and painful conditions that we treat.

 

Washington Foot & Ankle Surgery Center

Directly adjacent to our clinic, for your comfort and convenience, is our Medicare-certified Surgery Center. Staffed with nurse anesthetists and equipped with orthopedic power instruments, the Surgery Center makes it possible to perform same-day foot surgery. Patients appreciate saving the time, the traveling and the money, knowing that they would have to schedule a full day at a hospital where the same procedures would cost far more. At our Surgery Center, there is reduced paperwork, the staff already knows you and you can relax in an environment designed for your comfort.

 

Washington Bunion Center

A bunion is often described as a bump on the side of the big toe. However, a bunion is more than that. The visible bump actually reflects changes in the bony framework of the front part of the foot. The big toe leans toward the second toe, rather than pointing straight ahead. This throws the bones out of alignment – producing the bunion’s “bump.”

 

Ingrown / Fungal Toenails

Ingrown toenails are usually caused by trimming toenails too short, most commonly on the sides of the big toes. However, this is not the only the only cause.

 

Custom Molded Prescription Orthotics

Issaquah Foot and Ankle clinic specializes in orthotic prescription and biomechanical gait evaluation. We treat competitive athletes,  recreational athletes, runners, weekend warriors and anyone who may experience pain or injury related to problematic form and function of your feet. Your feet are the foundation of your body. Problems in your feet can be magnified with every step, causing problems beyond your feet, including your knees, hips and back. Dr. Timothy Young and Dr. Brandon Nelson have been successfully treating and resolving these problems with prescription custom orthotics.

 

Common Foot and Ankle Disorders

Did you know the foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles, and numerous tendons? These parts all work together to allow the foot to move in a variety of ways while balancing your weight and propelling you forward or backward on even or uneven surfaces. It is no wonder that 75 percent of all Americans will experience foot problems at one point or another in their lifetimes.

 

Alternatives to Foot & Ankle Surgery

We provide some of the most advanced alternatives to foot and ankle surgery in the Pacific Northwest.  The doctors currently perform, Platleet Rich Plasma injections, Supartz Therapy, Dry Needling, Traumeel, Shockwave Procedures, Alcohol Sclerosing and many more cutting edge therapies that are available depending on your pathology.

 

Morton's Neuroma

A neuroma is a thickening of nerve tissue that may develop in various parts of the body. The most common neuroma in the foot is a Morton’s neuroma, which occurs between the third and fourth toes. It is sometimes referred to as an intermetatarsal neuroma. “Intermetatarsal” describes its location in the ball of the foot between the metatarsal bones. Neuromas may also occur in other locations in the foot.

 

Swift Technology - Microwave Energy For Warts

Plantar warts are growths that typically appear on the heels or other weight-bearing areas of the feet. These warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). The virus enters the body through breaks in the skin, such as cuts, that are on the bottom of the feet. Plantar warts are more likely to affect children and teenagers, people with weakened immune systems, people who have a history with plantar warts, and people who walk barefoot in environments exposed to a wart-causing virus.

 

Sports Medicine

Foot and ankle pain can be distracting for many people, but it is particularly unbearable for patients with active lifestyles. An injury to the toes and feet can mean a minute off your mile, a season on the bench, and the loss of the ability to do the activity you love the most.

 

Neuropathy / Fibromyalgia

Neuropathy is a condition in which the nerves in the body become damaged. This damage can occur due to a number of different causes, including physical injury, diseases, cancers, infections, diabetes, toxic substances, and disorders. Nerves from any part of the body, including the feet, can be damaged. When neuropathy affects the feet or other parts of the limbs, it is called peripheral neuropathy.

 

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy, or Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), is an effective non-surgical treatment for managing pain caused by a variety of disorders. In podiatry, shockwave therapy can be used to manage painful conditions in the foot and ankle that negatively affect mobility and quality of life.

Dermal Fillers for Feet

The feet are essential in supporting the body’s weight during movement and can become strained due to many causes. As the body ages, the bottom of the foot can also lose cushion and volume, making certain foot conditions more painful.
