The human foot is a complex structure of
twenty-six bones, plus a network of ligaments, muscles, and
blood vessels working together to support the weight of the
entire body. Consequently, the feet are subject to many problems,
most of which can be detected during a simple examination.
Symptoms of serious health disorders such as diabetes, arthritis,
heart disease, and arteriosclerosis often manifest in the
lower extremity and your podiatrist is well trained to detect
Dr. Miller treats patients of
all ages. From children with flat feet, ingrown nails, warts,
and irregular walking patterns to senior citizens with painful
feet, painful fungal nails, and gait abnormalities.
Dr. Miller is one of the few doctors who actually
evaluate the way a patient walks (gait). In his 18+ years
of experience he has realized that few doctors take the time
to observe the way their patients walk. Very often a patient
will walk into the office after having been seen by another
doctor with a painful leg/foot, lower extremity and back pain,
and during Dr. Miller’s examination it is discovered
that no one has ever actually observed the patient while walking.
Most leg and foot pain is due to an underlying problem in
the way we walk. Dr. Miller not only watches the way a patient
walks, he also has the ability to use Tek Skan®, a new
technology that allows him to put pressure sensitive sensors
into a patient’s shoes and get a computerized image
of how a person’s foot functions in their shoes. This
is particularly valuable in evaluating the way a diabetic
patient walks, as it helps to determine where future ulcers
might develop. Dr. Miller can then take preventive measures
to minimize the chances of ulcers forming.
Dr. Miller utilizes the latest orthotics, leg braces and foot
wear to align the way a patient walks. These devices are comfortable
to wear, easy to put on, covered by most insurances, and improve
the quality of life for his patients.
