Why is my Family History Important for foot care?

Your family history provides our doctors with important insight into your health and that of your feet. You may have inherited conditions that can affect your feet, like diabetes or heart and circulatory problems. Biomechanical and structural issues that you are born with can cause any number of foot conditions, too. Knowing if you are prone to certain problems can not only help us treat them, but possibly prevent them from occurring in the first place. Your family history alerts us to possible complications that may arise as well. It also helps us to determine reasons behind issues that you are having, which in turn allows us to develop an appropriate treatment plan.

To learn more, contact Dr. Jennifer Keller and Dr. Marshal Gwynn at Shenandoah Podiatry in VA. You can reach us by calling our Blacksburg office at (540) 808-4343, or by dialing (540) 904-1458 for our Roanoke location.
