Stay a Step Ahead of Foot Trouble

Did you know that the average healthy person should walk between 8000 and 10,000 steps each day? That’s about a whopping 115,000 miles in a lifetime. With those figures, it’s obvious that your feet take a lot of wear and tear each year.

In fact, according to the Illinois Podiatric Medical Association, 75% of Americans will suffer from a foot problem in their lifetime. Nearly 20% of Americans experience a foot ailment each year. The most common culprits are:

  • Foot Infections
  • Fungal Infections (Athlete’s Foot)
  • Warts
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Corns, calluses and bunions
  • Fallen Arches
  • Foot Injuries

No matter what type of foot problem you are dealing with, we can help.

I saw Dr Gerst for the first time and had a wonderful experience. He made me feel very comfortable and at ease while I was being treated. I am a diabetic and I’m so grateful I found a doctor I can trust. I have recommended him to all of my friends at church. The office was very clean and the staff was professional and helpful.
