The average person takes approximately 10,000 steps each day on every conceivable type of surface and incline. This level of wear and tear can lead to mal-alignment of the bones and joints of the feet. The discomfort associated with these mal-alignments is responsible for up to 80-90% of the foot ailments we see and treat in our offices at A Step Ahead Foot & Ankle Center. Our major goal as local podiatrists is to keep our patients feet healthy and in good condition. Our methods include recommendations for proper shoe selection, advice on effective home care, fitting orthopedic devices, gait and shoe balancing, and measuring and fitting of orthotic inserts and arch supports. All of these are designed to compensate for weaknesses due to malformation and injuries. 

Through a thorough health history and examination, we determine what level of foot and ankle treatment is needed to give you the healthiest, most efficient care possible to keep your feet functioning for life!
