Did you know one of the most common reasons people don't get their health problems treated is because they're scared? We understand, the thought of going to the doctor, in pain, just to be treated with painful techniques is not that appealing. However, very often, if you don't get your problems treated they're just going to get worse! This is true for feet especially, if your feet hurt, they will probably NOT just stop hurting tomorrow.

Conservative Treatment Options

Here at Family Foot & Ankle Specialists, we don't want people needlessly suffering with foot pain so we have included many painless treatments for foot problems. We believe it's important to start with conservative treatment methods such as physical therapy, new shoes, orthotics, laser therapy, and shockwave. Many foot problems can be successfully treated by using these painful techniques.


Roughly 80% of people are wearing the wrong size shoes...this will inevitably lead many common foot problems such as ingrown toenails, bunions, hammertoes, even heel pain.

Laser Therapy

Our painless laser therapy has been very successful treating many foot problems such as heel pain, Achilles tendonitis, ankle pain, arthritis and MORE. The laser improves healing time and reduces inflammation.


This is also used to treat common foot problems by sending radio waves to the affected area and promoting healing.


Most people could benefit from orthotics. The help to stabilize and support your foot. Especially useful in athletes and those with fallen arches.
