Compassionate Care for Your Foot Health

Though both men and women experience some foot issues, gender-specific anatomical differences and different approaches to footwear may result in some foot issues that are unique to women. At Preferred Footcare, our board-certified foot doctors in Stamford, CT offer women high-quality and effective foot care. Our experienced team understands the foot issues women can encounter. We are focused on keeping your feet healthy and preventing foot complications before they occur.

What Causes Women's Foot Issues?

Women may experience issues due to 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
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Blisters
  • Bunions
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Hammertoes
  • Morton's neuroma
  • Excessive swelling (often associated with pregnancy)
  • Stress fractures


Symptoms & Diagnosis of Women’s Foot Issues

The symptoms associated with women's foot issues are varied and may range from tenderness to open sores and broken bones. Women's foot issues are usually diagnosed with thorough patient history, questions about footwear, pregnancy, and participation in activities. A comprehensive exam is then performed that includes physical palpitation of the affected areas, range of motion tests, and diagnostic imaging, including ultrasound and x-rays.

Non-Surgical Treatment for Women's Foot Issues

Treatment options for women's foot issues will depend on the symptoms experienced by the patient and the doctor's ultimate diagnosis. Treatment may include:

  • Anti-inflammatories and ice to reduce swelling
  • Compressive sleeves or stockings and elevating the feet to combat swelling
  • Comfortable, supportive footwear
  • Custom molded orthotics
  • Padding or cushions for the shoes
  • Padding and cushions for the toes, arches, or balls of the feet
  • Foam splints for hammertoes
  • Pumice stone treatments to shave down corns and calluses
  • Injections for nerve pain associated with a neuroma
  • Amniotic fluid injections for bursitis, tendonitis, arthritis, and nerve pain
