Women’s Foot Care

Specialized Care for Your Unique Needs

Though some foot issues are experienced by both men and women, gender-specific anatomical differences and different approaches to footwear may result in some foot issues that are unique to women. At Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists, our podiatrists understand every ache your foot can experience. There are a number of common foot and ankle problems in women that we see frequently and know how to solve for you with our 5-star women's foot care in Sugar Land, Katy, and Houston, TX.

 What Causes Women’s Foot Issues?

Women may experience issues as a result of biology, pregnancy, or poor choices in footwear. While high-heeled shoes are frequently pointed to as the worst shoe choice for women, shoes with little to no arch support such as flip flops, sandals, flat boots, and ballet slippers can be just as harmful. Some specific issues include:

  • Flatfoot
  • Blisters
  • Bunions
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Hammertoes
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Excessive swelling (often associated with pregnancy)
  • Stress fractures

How to Diagnose Women’s Foot Issues

Women’s foot issues are usually diagnosed using a comprehensive exam that includes physical palpitation of the affected area and range of motion tests, a thorough patient history, and questions about footwear, pregnancy or the patient’s participation in activities such as dance classes or marathon running that may impact foot health.

Non-Surgical Treatment for Women’s Foot Issues

Treatment options for women’s foot issues will depend on your symptoms and diagnosis. Treatment may include:

  • Anti-inflammatories and ice to reduce swelling
  • Elevating the feet, also done to combat swelling
  • Comfortable, supportive footwear
  • Orthotic shoe inserts
  • Padding or cushions for the toes, arches, or balls of the feet
  • Foam splints for hammertoes
  • Pumice stone treatments to shave down corns and calluses
  • Cortisone injections for nerve pain associated with a neuroma
