Dr. Coleen Napolitano, a Loyola podiatrist, treats patients who are suffering from any ailment from below the knee to the tip of the toes. She talks about how important it is for athletes to have a stretching routine for their sport. This will help prevent sport injuries. Sometimes patients with nail problems just need a little instruction on the best way to cut them to prevent problems. For heel pain, stretching and inserts have great benefits. Dr. Napolitano points out that while there is a surgery for everything, it is not always necessary. She prefers to try conservative treatments first.
