Podiatry

Expert Foot & Ankle Care

During your lifetime, you’ll walk thousands of miles, and your feet take the brunt of it all. Every step you take puts your entire body weight on your feet, which are each made up of 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments. Living with painful feet takes a toll on daily life, as it makes it more challenging to exercise, and even walking can be more of a struggle. Our podiatrists at Visalia Medical Clinic can address your foot and ankle problems skillfully and carefully so you can get back in the swing of things.
