By: Gen Wright

CHARLOTTE, NC - Dr. Scott Basinger, podiatrist in Ballantyne, NC, of Ankle & Foot Center of Charlotte offers patients helpful tips for exceptional foot and ankle health this spring season. While winter months allow patients to hide their feet, as the weather continues to warm up and vacations are planned, some people may not be ready to show off their feet.

"As many of us are preparing ourselves for the summer months, it is important to take extra care of your feet now in order to have healthy feet for the summer. By taking precautions now to eliminate any complications I can assure you that you will be able to show off your feet all summer," said Dr. Scott Basinger, podiatrist in Charlotte, NC.

Before summer begins, Dr. Basinger encourages patients to take a look at their feet to ensure they are in their best health. Often, in the winter months many people tend to hide their feet with socks and shoes, which can be a breeding ground for toenail fungus.

If patients are suffering from an ingrown toenail in Charlotte, NC, Dr. Basinger invites them to visit his office for further diagnosis and treatment. An ingrown toenail is a common and painful condition of the toes that occurs when one or both sides of the nail break through and grow into the skin of the toe rather than over it.

As a result, the irritated skin becomes painful, red and swollen. Fortunately, when detected early, an ingrown can generally be treated effectively from home. But when left untreated, an ingrown toenail is prone to infection as bacteria can enter the penetrated skin. Professional treatment from Dr. Basinger, Charlotte, NC podiatrist, will be necessary to treat the infection.

Additionally, Dr. Basinger encourages patients to visit Ankle & Foot Center of Charlotte whenever they experience foot pain in Charlotte, NC. Whether they are suffering from heel pain, or bunions, Dr. Basinger can help diagnose and treat their painful condition to ensure their feet are healthy and don't interrupt their day-to-day schedule.

By offering valuable tips for exceptional foot and ankle health this spring, Dr. Basinger hopes his patients will enjoy their summer months without foot complications. As a board certified foot surgeon, Dr. Basinger believes that informed patients are better prepared to make decisions regarding their podiatric health and well being. That is why Dr. Basinger not only offers helpful tips to his patients, but he also offers an extensive education section through his website covering the full array of topics associated with podiatry, including heel pain in Charlotte, NC.
