At Tri-County Foot & Ankle, we see a variety of foot and ankle conditions and injuries. Whether it be diabetic neuropathy, an ingrown toenail, or a mysterious bump on your foot, our podiatrists offer up some insight into some of the most frequently asked questions – or FAQs – that we see in our two offices located in The Villages, Florida

One of our testimonial patients quoted a Chinese proverb that says, “we die from the feet up.” If you have pain in your feet, don’t ignore it. It could be a warning like diabetes or the foot pain could cause you to live a sedentary lifestyle, which can lead to heart disease, and some types of cancer.

Check out some of our FAQ videos below and schedule your appointment today! Don’t “die from the feet up”, come see us so you can get back to enjoying your lifestyle.
