If your feet could talk, they might utter that old Rodney Dangerfield line, “I don’t get no respect.” In truth, if any part of our bodies deserve respect, it’s the complex foot and ankle system. Your feet and ankles are made up of 28 bones, 33 joints, and 112 ligaments controlled by 13 extrinsic and 21 intrinsic muscles. With this amazing system, we can walk, run, dance, jump, and more. But when there’s a problem with this highly sensitive, mobile, flexible, and adaptive system, it can quite literally stop us in our tracks.
That’s when it’s time to call the best podiatrist in Katy and Cypress, Dr. James Jacobs of Your Total Foot Care Specialist. Together with Dr. Maria Sandoval, Dr. Jacobs cares for men, women, and children struggling with issues ranging from heel pain and foot and ankle injury to bunions, hammer toes, tendinitis, peripheral artery disease (PAD), neuroma, toenail fungus, athlete’s foot, corns and callouses, and diabetic foot complications. If it’s affecting your feet and ankles, Dr. Jacobs is highly experienced in the latest techniques and technology to help you find relief. Foot pain is never normal, and you should not ignore it.
