Podiatric Physician Practicing Near Jeffersontown, KY

The human foot is a complex network of 26 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Together, these components comprise an intricate marvel, and each must function seamlessly to provide effective support, stability, and mobility to the entire body.

Statistics from the American Podiatric Medical Association reveal that, on average, people take around 8,000 steps per day, which is equivalent to several miles. With each step, the feet endure immense pressure—up to four times the weight of the body. It is easy to understand why up to 75% of Americans experience foot pain at some point in their lives.

But here is a crucial point: Your feet are not supposed to hurt constantly. If you are enduring persistent foot pain, relief is within your reach. At Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic, we have a dedicated podiatric physician who can help you. Dr. Dawn M. Michels, a board-certified doctor of podiatric medicine (DPM), has the specialized training and qualifications necessary to address a wide range of painful foot conditions.

Don’t Ignore Foot Pain

Foot pain should never be dismissed or tolerated. It can disrupt your balance, limit your mobility, and increase the risk of falling. Moreover, your feet can serve as vital indicators of your overall health. Early signs of several potentially serious medical conditions—including diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, gout, deep vein thrombosis, and kidney disease—may first become apparent in your feet.

By performing a thorough evaluation, our podiatric physician can determine if an underlying health issue is the source of your foot pain. After confirming your diagnosis, she will suggest a tailored treatment plan to relieve your discomfort and improve your mobility.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
