Start your journey with a podiatrist in Ventura
Every journey begins with a single step but if you suffer from debilitating ankle or feet problems then even that small first step may be beyond you. In which case, your first step should be straight to your nearest podiatrist. If you live in Ventura, Santa Barbara, Oxnard, Sherman Oaks or Palmdale then you’re in luck because podiatric practice Foot & Ankle Concepts Inc have clinics in all those cities and can help get you back on your journey, whether it be one of 1000 steps or 1000 miles.
Foot & Ankle Concepts Inc are experts when it comes to ankle and foot related problems like heel pain, bunions, arthritis, fractures, athletes foot, hyperpronation (a fancy way of saying flat feet), hammer toes, fat pad augmentation, warts, neuromas, nail problems and diabetic wound care. They also treat a range of pediatric foot problems and offer orthotics advice and consultation.
So if you find that foot or ankle problems like heel pain are interrupting your journey or preventing you from starting one, or you need bunion surgery, talk to the team of qualified and dedicated podiatrists at Foot & Ankle Concepts Inc in Ventura, Santa Barbara, Oxnard, Sherman Oaks and Palmdale either by phone on 805-845-1245 or via email and have a chat to one of their friendly, helpful medical team members.
Did you know? Neuromas are very painful. They’re also called pinched nerves or nerve tumours but before you start thinking ‘chemo’ relax - they ‘re a benign growth of nerve tissues. Commonly located between the 3rd and 4th toes, they’re also interestingly more common in women than men. Symptoms include pain, burning sensations, numbness or even tingling between the toes and in the ball of the foot. Unfortunately no one really knows what causes neuromas although high-arches or flat feet, trauma, tight and / or unsuitable shoes (overly high heels are the main culprit here) and repeated stress to the feet all contribute to their development and aggravate existing ones.
Sally Forth Once You’ve Had Bunion Surgery In Ventura
There are plenty of ventures that can be undertaken in Ventura so once you’ve had your feet attended to by Foot & Ankle Concepts Inc you’re cleared to venture forth on your next journey. Why not start with a Ventura Food Tours, which tours the best dining opportunities in Ventura. You can then follow it up with a visit to the odd winery or two with the Ventura County Wine Trail – perfectly in keeping with the theme for the day. Or do your own wine touring - there’s Four Brix Winery, Labyrinth Winery and Old Creek Ranch Winery as well as Herzog Wine Cellars and Rancho Ventavo Cellars in Oxnard.
If your feet can stand the pace, step up the action and see what Island Packers have to offer in the way of tour cruises, chartered excursions and whalewatching trips. Diving is something else you could try with Calboat Diving. For some real exercise, cycle or roller blade your way along the Ventura to Ojai Paved Bike Path or play a round or two of golf at Olivas Links or the Buenaventura Golf Course. Check out Golf N Stuff for a different take on golf or to play with bumper cars, bumper boats and lazer tags.
There’s also plenty of history and culture to see – the last Californian Spanish mission was Mission San Buenaventura. Olivas Adobe is a Monterey-style adobe home from the Rancho era and a California Historic Landmark. If you have children with you, they’ll undoubtedly enjoy a day at the Gull Wings Children's Museum or a performance at the Rubicon Theatre Company.
For heaps to do in the one place head to Ventura Pier & Promenade or Ventura Harbor Village where there is shopping, dining and recreational activities to be had. This one might be easiest if you need to give your feet a break.
