At Heelex Podiatry, we are your trusted partners in health. Our practice is dedicated to providing quality care by offering the highest level of service, which is why a well-deserved reputation for excellence has followed our physicians. Check out a few of the conditions we can treat at our office. 

Tendons, Ligaments, and Muscles

Tendons, ligaments, and muscles are essential for basic movement and activity. It's important to stay up to date on their condition and take care of them!

Ankle and Ligaments
Foot Pain Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis and plantar fibromas are conditions that cause pain in the sole of the foot and heel. The plantar fascia is a thick ligament that connects the heel to the front of the foot. If overused, it can cause severe discomfort and pain. 


Skeletal injuries and deformities can have varying degrees of severity and may require the care of a podiatrist. These injuries include sprains, fractures, bunions, and hammer toes.

Neurological foot pain


Neuropathy and neuromas are two fairly common neurological issues found in the feet. The key to managing these issues is finding the right support. 

Nail Care

If you're experiencing a toenail condition, it's important to identify the cause in order to find the best course of action. Toenail conditions such as bacterial infections, fungal infections, or ingrown toenails can all be troublesome, causing pain and discomfort.
