When you need treatment for foot and ankle conditions in the greater Roseburg, Oregon community, the office of Wilks Advanced Foot Care is ready to help. We provide treatment for a wide array of medical issues, including those that cause heel pain or have happened as a result of sporting injury. Our office is committed to comprehensive foot care, including a focus on the areas highlighted below.
Heel Pain Treatment
Many different conditions can cause soreness in your heels
, but some of the more common include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis
, Sever’s disease, and stress fractures. Fortunately, these problems are usually treated successfully with the use of nonsurgical methods.
Athlete’s foot may sound like it would only happen to active individuals, but this is a common fungal infection that is usually treated successfully at home. Severe cases, however, may require professional care—and that’s why we are here. In addition to treating athlete’s foot, we also provide treatment for fungal toenails
. This fungal infection frequently causes discolored, distorted, and brittle nail tissue.
We know that it can be uncomfortable, painful, and downright embarrassing to consider the fact that you have sustained a fungal infection, but our office will help. Simply schedule your appointment with G. Jason Wilks, DPM and have your feet restored to their natural, healthy condition!
Diabetic Foot Care
One of the important services we provide for our Oregon patients is diabetic foot care
. If you live with diabetes, you must perform an array of measures to successfully manage the disease. This includes making sure that foot issues are prevented—or at least treated in early stages—to reduce the risk of serious medical complications. We can help you or your loved one create an effective diabetic foot care plan and will provide the treatment necessary to promptly address any issues that arise before they become critical.
Sports Injury Care
Some of the common sports injuries
we see in our patients include sprained ankles
, stress fractures, and Achilles tendinitis. When you are hurt in the field of play, while running, or during any physical activity, the office of G. Jason Wilks, DPM offers services to get you back on your feet in no time.
There are various reasons that toes can become deformed (inherited structure, footwear, etc.), but our practice is always here to assist you when bunions or hammertoes develop. We offer an array of treatment options, both conservative and surgical in nature, to help you find relief from any pain, discomfort, or impaired function you experience on account of these toe abnormalities.
Some issues develop on account of accidents or improperly-fitting footwear, but some are simply caused by an inherited foot structure. This is the case for problems caused by flat feet and high arches. Your body relies on a natural rolling motion known as pronation to absorb the tremendous forces during impact and aid in your mobility. We can often treat structural issues with the use of custom orthotics
There are many foot conditions that are treated successfully with the use of conservative foot care methods, but sometimes surgical procedures are necessary for optimal treatment. This can be the case for conditions like foot fractures, bunions, toe deformities, and Lisfranc injuries.
Our practice will exhaust conservative treatment methods first, but you and your loved ones can find peace of mind knowing that we consistently perform successful surgical procedures for patients who need them.
