A Team Approach
At HFAA, we truly believe that a doctor–patient team is the ideal way to treat foot pain and common problems. By working together, you get the fastest, most effective resolution to your foot pain.
We offer comprehensive treatment options for a variety of foot problems, including:
- Heel and Arch Pain. There are dozens of possible reasons why your heels and arches might hurt. To find the right treatment for your heel or arch pain, Dr. Melissa J. Lockwood and the HFAA team will listen to your symptoms and do a thorough exam..
- Pediatric Feet. Your child’s feet grow and develop before your eyes. To be sure your child is growing up with the healthiest and happiest feet, it’s important that he or she sees a pediatric podiatrist for any injuries or abnormalities. Treating these early will help your child now and later in life.
- Diabetic Foot Care. Persons with diabetes face unique risks when it comes to the feet. If you’re living with diabetes, visit our office for care, treatment, and relaxation in our Healing Steps Spa and with Dr. Melissa J. Lockwood.
- Sports Injuries. Do you love to run, lift, jump, or play? Chances are your feet or ankles might get injured at some point in all that fun and activity. When that happens, visit HFAA for treatment so that you can get back in the game fast!
- Foot Disorders. We provide comprehensive functional care when something is wrong with your foot or lower legs. This can be as simple as pain relief, palliative care, and a home treatment program for nails, corns, or calluses. We can also effectively address progressive foot deformities such as hammertoes and bunions, as well as neuromas and other painful conditions within the foot.
Feel your best! You deserve it. Stop suffering with foot pain or embarrassing nail conditions.
