When you think about it, our feet are pretty amazing. For most, they're an unfaltering foundation - two shock absorbers we rely on daily to hold our weight and propel us through life. Comprised of dozens of bones and hundreds of ligaments, muscles, and tendons, the average person's feet take a fair beating every day - on average, people stand for about four hours every day and take around 5K steps as well. Because your feet are smaller than most other parts of your body, they endure an enormous impact with each step, adding up to hundreds of tons of weight daily.
Strangely, when our feet, ankles, or toes begin to hurt, we do our best to ignore the pain and push through the day. We even give up sports and outdoor activities that we love. Unfortunately, ignoring pain and delaying treatment will further damage your feet and, by proxy, your whole body.
If you're living with foot and ankle pain or have given up on fun activities like hiking and jogging, it's time to change. Why sacrifice a life full of outdoor activities in our beautiful part of the world when you can visit an expert podiatrist in Mira Mesa, CA?
Welcome to North County Foot and Ankle - where men and women just like you get new leases on life through some of the most advanced podiatric treatments available in California. With more than 50 years of combined experience treating a wide range of foot and ankle problems, our pioneering doctors have helped hundreds of people reclaim their love of walking, jogging, and life in general.
What makes North County Foot and Ankle stand out from other foot and ankle doctors in Mira Mesa? Unlike some foot doctors, our podiatrists work with a client-first mentality. When you walk through our front doors, the time you spend in our office is all about you. We believe in a strong physician-patient relationship fortified by one-on-one attention and honest communication.
Before offering foot pain treatment options, we perform a thorough evaluation, taking into account your individual needs, goals, and preferences. Once that's done, we'll discuss your treatment options in detail and come to a mutual decision regarding the best treatment plan for you.
Whether you have a minor hangnail or need complex surgery, you will receive the same level of compassionate care from our medical team. As board-certified podiatrists in Mira Mesa, our doctors are proud to treat you. You can rest easy knowing they will take the time to explain what's causing your foot pain, what treatments are best suited to your problem, and what steps you should take after treatment.
And while our podiatrists are uniquely qualified to perform surgery, we often recommend non-surgical options, using treatments like orthotics to relieve foot, arch, and heel pain. From sports injuries and bunions to gout and blisters, we're here to help you live life to the fullest without nagging, debilitating foot pain.
Patients visit our foot clinic in Mira Mesa, CA, for many podiatric problems, including:
If you're dealing with chronic foot pain or are concerned about a long-lasting symptom that affects your daily life, we're here to help. Unsure if you need to call to make an appointment? These symptoms are often signs that you might need to visit our foot and ankle doctors:
Most people over 40 know that strange body aches and pains become more common with age. The same can be said with our feet. As we get older, our feet usually spread out and lose the fatty pads that help cushion our feet. If you're overweight, the ligaments and bones in your feet also take an extra beating. Also, with age, foot abnormalities that you were born with become more pronounced, as the joints in your feet lose flexibility and become rigid. To make matters worse, the skin covering your feet dries out, resulting in more cuts, scrapes, and infections.
It's clear that we endure more foot pain as we get older, but what kind of foot pain should we be most concerned about? It can be hard to tell - pain from what looks like normal bruising may actually be a sign that something more serious is occurring. That's why we're listing some of the most common symptoms of serious foot problems. That way, you're better educated and have a better shot at figuring out whether you need a simple bag of ice or a visit to your podiatrist in Mira Mesa, CA.
When you sprain your foot or ankle or suffer an acute injury, it's normal for your foot to swell up. This type of swelling typically goes down after 48 hours have passed. However, if you hurt your foot and the swelling is severe and doesn't go away after a couple of days, it's cause for concern. Persistent swelling often indicates an ankle or foot injury that needs podiatric care.
North County Foot and Ankle Pro Tip: If you notice persistent swelling of any kind on your body, it's wise to see a doctor. Ankle swelling, in particular, could be a warning sign that a blood clot or heart issue is present.
It's normal for your foot or ankle to "smart" after you stub your toe or twist your ankle. However, if you're experiencing ongoing ankle and foot pain, it's probably not normal. The pain doesn't have to be sharp, either - if you have dull pain, tenderness, or weakness that lasts more than two days, a trip to the foot doctor may be in order.
Minor ankle and foot injuries, like sprains, are quite common. When a sprain happens, it's normal to experience some instability or weakness afterward. Chronic instability, however, is a more serious problem. Long-term instability or weakness may signify torn ligaments or something worse. If you've had trouble standing or walking for a long time, it's best to make an appointment at a foot clinic in Mira Mesa.
North County Foot and Ankle Pro Tip: Podiatric experts like those at North County Foot and Ankle may have a long-term solution to help reclaim your mobility without surgery. Give our office call today to learn more!
Stiffness is a normal symptom that should be expected with sprains, plantar fasciitis, and arthritis. Often, you can alleviate such stiffness with rest, weight loss, stretching, or even new shoes. With that said, if you're experiencing ongoing stiffness, it could be a red flag that something more serious is going on.
When you've been sitting for a long time, you may have noticed a popping sound from your feet when you stand. That sound is perfectly normal. So long as it's painless, you've got nothing to worry about. However, if you feel pain when you hear a popping noise, it could indicate a subluxation or dislocation, which are conditions that require a podiatrist's attention.
If you're not sure whether you should be concerned about a painful foot or ankle symptom, give our clinic in Mira Mesa a call ASAP. Our helpful technicians can help answer your questions and set up a time for you to speak with one of our friendly podiatrists.
Here are just a few of the typical foot problems we treat daily.
Do you have intense heel pain that appears when you first stand up, only for it to disappear after a few steps? If so, you could be one of the millions of people in the U.S. suffering from plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is most often caused by an inflamed ligament covering bones on the bottom of your feet. Also called "Policeman's Heel," this painful condition is a common reason for heel pain, but it won't go away on its own.
Almost all cases of plantar fasciitis will get better with easy, non-surgical treatments and lifestyle changes. A good place to start is by refraining from activities or sports that cause pain, like jogging, hiking, running, or aerobic exercises.
Common treatment options at North County Foot and Ankle include:
Orthotic shoe inserts provide you with the arch support that your feet need, especially with shoes like women's flats that don't have much foot support. We also recommend wearing shoes that are appropriate for the activity you're enjoying, like hiking boots on your favorite trail and running shoes on the street or track.
Stretching regularly with gentle exercises can help prevent plantar fasciitis and stop flare-ups. Stretching your calves, specifically, reduces heel pain effectively. After you schedule an appointment at our foot clinic in Mira Mesa, one of our doctors can explain the proper exercises in more detail.
Wearing a brace or splint while you sleep will keep your plantar fascia stretched. That way, when you wake up and take your first steps of the day, you shouldn't have as much pain because your plantar fascia won't have a chance to tighten up overnight.
North County Foot and Ankle Pro Tip: If you're still struggling with plantar fasciitis after using orthotics, treatments like orthobiologics, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, or extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) may be more effective.
Ingrown toenails are among the most common foot maladies in the United States. Though common, ingrown toenails can be painful, resulting in swelling, bleeding, pus, and more. Various factors cause ingrown toenails, such as heredity, trauma, hygiene, nail conditions, and improper trimming. Thankfully, with the help of an expert, most ingrown toenails can be treated at home or in a podiatrist's office.
Ingrown toenails happen when the corners and sides of your toenails grow and eventually dig into the flesh around your nail. Most often occurring on the big toe, ingrown toenails become a serious concern when they are left untreated or when an infection is involved. To determine whether your ingrown toenail needs an evaluation by a foot doctor in Mira Mesa, CA, keep an eye out for initial symptoms and infection symptoms:
To help prevent infection, try cutting your nails in a straight line, and don't cut them too short. Do not cut your nails to match the shape of your toe.
When your toenail becomes ingrown, you need doctors with real expertise in diagnosing and treating foot problems. At North County Foot and Ankle, our doctors are highly qualified to treat the underlying conditions causing your ingrown toenail. That way, you can enjoy long-term relief and also learn the ways to prevent ingrown toenails in the future.
If you have a bony bump near the bottom joint of your big toe, chances are it's a bunion. Bunions are deformities on your feet that are formed when your front foot bones become misaligned. When this happens, the misaligned bones cause the top half of your big toe to point inward toward your second toe. From there, your tendons will tighten, which pulls your toe even further inward. Once your toe is pulled more inward, the bottom joint of your big toe will bulge outward. The bulge you see is actually what we refer to as a bunion.
Without treatment, your toe pain can worsen, and the bunion can grow. Painful swelling in the balls of your feet can also cause hammertoe. Hammertoe happens your second toe is bent out of shape by your misaligned big toe.
Luckily, North County Foot and Ankle is California's go-to clinic for bunion treatment in Mira Mesa, CA. Our highly-trained doctors can stop these uncomfortable conditions from happening and help prevent worse conditions from developing.
Jason Morris, a board-certified podiatric foot surgeon in Mira Mesa, CA, is one of the top podiatrists in the greater San Diego area and has successfully treated patients with bunions for over ten years. He offers advanced treatments for bunion pain, such as:
Our hand-made orthotics, which are worn in your shoes, are molded to fit your foot exactly, correcting bone misalignments and relieving pain much better than cookie-cutter, store-bought options.
Drs. Morris and Redkar performs state-of-the-art triplanar correction surgery using 3-D digital imaging and a minimal incision approach. This procedure is very effective and works by rotating misaligned big toe bones back to the proper position. Once your toe bones are back in position, a metal plate is attached to your bones so that they remain aligned over long-term use.
Drs. Morris and Redkar may recommend both surgery and custom orthotics to keep your foot pain-free and your bunion from growing back.

SAN DIEGO — Walt Mooromsky is one of 240 condo owners in the Canyon Park Villas in Mira Mesa, who recently had their property insurance not renewed by Farmers Insurance due to wildfire risk.The condos sit on a canyon ridge, but Mooromsky said the City of San Diego owns the canyon behind their homes.“We've done some brush mitigation.

SAN DIEGO — Walt Mooromsky is one of 240 condo owners in the Canyon Park Villas in Mira Mesa, who recently had their property insurance not renewed by Farmers Insurance due to wildfire risk.
The condos sit on a canyon ridge, but Mooromsky said the City of San Diego owns the canyon behind their homes.
“We've done some brush mitigation. We don't own very much, basically, at the fence line is the end of our property. We're not allowed to mitigate beyond that,” said Mooromsky.
Because the condos are connected, they require a master, $50 million property insurance policy to cover the entire complex.
The HOA had to go to the secondary insurance market and cobble together replacement insurance, resulting in a $2,500 special assessment on all 240 condo owners, just for this year.
“$2,500, it's not a drop in the bucket. So. There's a little bit of a shock,” said Mooromsky. “The best thing they could do for us was, well, if you can't pay it all at once, we'll set up a payment program for you with a 4% interest rate.”
The Mira Mesa condos are one of three local complexes recently cancelled by Farmers, including 320 condos in Tierrasanta and 338 units in in Rancho Bernardo.
CBS 8 has been working to find a solution. Now, state legislators are responding with a letter to the CA Insurance Commissioner.
Eighteen state senators signed on to the letter, dated February 6, 2023, requesting that the Commissioner immediately raise the maximum amount of coverage allowed under the state's safety-net insurance plan (called the FAIR Plan) “from the current level of $8.4 million to at least $20 million.”
For condo owners in San Diego, those long-term solutions can't come soon enough.
“This can feed homelessness. I mean, there are people who are just making it by owning a condominium. And, if you're going to hike the dues up that much, they can't handle that,” said Mooromsky, the condo owner in Mira Mesa.
Farmers Insurance did not respond to CBS 8’s request for comment.
Toni Atkins, California’s Senate President Pro Tem, emailed the following statement to CBS 8:
“Climate change is taking a toll on our state and now, with the risks to life and property more intense than ever, it’s also impacting California’s insurance market, including here in San Diego. With homeowners struggling to find and maintain home insurance – especially residents of condominiums and HOAs in high fire-risk areas throughout the state – my Senate colleagues and I are urging Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara to use his existing authority to increase coverage limits under the California FAIR Plan as an interim fix to help residents, while we also work on identifying longer-term solutions. A healthy insurance marketplace is essential to protecting our homes and not exacerbating our state’s housing crisis – we will continue to explore every option available.”
The office of the State Insurance Commissioner emailed CBS 8 the following statement:
"Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara appreciates the Legislature’s support of his continued efforts to modernize the FAIR Plan to meet new challenges. The Commissioner has a long history of taking actions to ensure California consumers have greater access to insurance. In November 2021, the Commissioner ordered the FAIR Plan to implement his mandated increases to its decades-old commercial property coverage limits offered to businesses, which increased the combined coverage limits for the FAIR Plan, under its Division I Commercial Property Program, from $4.5 million to $8.4 million and, under its Division II Businessowners Program, from $3.6 million to $7.2 million.
Insurance is about safety and, hearing from homeowners and businesses, we are creating lasting solutions to protect Californians from climate change. Expanded coverage options for HOAs and community associations including a stronger FAIR Plan is a top priority for my new term. Thank you @SenToniAtkins and @CASenateDems for your continued support. We have to hold insurance companies accountable to covering Californians. We want them to be part of the solution, not the problem, and work with us to protect homeowners and businesses.”

The largest Taiwanese dumpling maker, Bafang Dumpling, has confirmed to Eater that it will be opening its first San Diego restaurant at the Village at Mira Mesa before the end of the year. Its corner storefront will be part of the retail center’s new expansion area (where Crumbl Cookies is already located) near the intersection of Mira Mesa Boulevard and Reagan Road.
After conquering Asia, where it has nearly 1,300 locations in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China and sells 1.2 billion dumplings each year, Bafang is setting its sights on growing its U.S. market with ambitions to make it bigger than its Hong Kong presence.
Bafang founder Jiayu Lin was a struggling mechanic while his wife was a math teacher who had students coming to their home for tutoring where they made potstickers for the kids, a popular afternoon snack, before buckling down to study. The first Bafang Dumpling restaurant opened in 1998, expanded to Hong Kong in 2008, and launched in China in 2014. Last year, the company went public on the Taiwanese stock market.
Ringing in at 3,000-square-feet, the San Diego restaurant “will be bigger than our City of Industry restaurant with more seating since we’ll have more space,” Stephanie Peng, CEO of Bafang Yunji North America, told Eater over a phone call. The chain made its stateside debut in March 2022 with a restaurant in the San Gabriel Valley and opened a second SoCal store last month in Chino Hills. “Our team is really excited. It’s such a great area and great community. We’re happy that Mira Mesa will be home to our first store in San Diego,” said Peng.
The menu will be the same as the Los Angeles area outposts, featuring specialties like its signature boiled dumplings filled with pork and cabbage, corn and chicken, or kimchi and pork, as well as the Bafang pork chop, a popular Taiwanese breaded pork cutlet. Other favorites include griddle-fried potstickers, Taiwanese beef noodle soup, and old-fashioned noodles, which are bouncy QQ noodles dressed with soy sauce and shallot oil. Drinks range from boba tea to mango soy milk.
There are also combo meals, which include iced lemon black tea or a cup of hot and sour soup, corn chowder soup, or mini wonton soup. “The combinations are easy for the customers to sample what our specialties are,” said Peng.
“We want to be able to offer authentic Taiwanese comfort food, like potstickers, dumplings, and noodles. Our aim is to deliver high-quality food that’s easy and convenient at affordable pricing,” said Peng. “We hope to go in offering a different style of food than burgers, pizzas, and tacos.”
While its North American headquarters and central kitchen will remain based in Irvine, Bafang has set a goal of opening 10 more U.S. stores by the end of 2023. “We’re vigorously expanding, focusing on Southern California because of its diversity,” added Peng.
While 85 percent of their stores in Asia are franchised, the first batch of U.S. Bafang restaurants is all corporate-owned. There will be opportunities for franchisees to expand across the country as Bafang establishes firm footing on this side of the Pacific.

Fans and followers of Richard Blais now have another spot to visit with the opening of California English, where the celeb chef who’s called San Diego home for a decade now is putting his SoCal perspective on some of the UK’s best-known culinary hits.
The new Sorrento Mesa restaurant, which opens Thursday, February 2, is a project that’s been in his back pocket for many years, further encouraged by a honeymoon trip to London and the discovery that he’s more than half genetically British.
The chef’s favorite football club is also based in London, where Blais spent over a month researching his menu, which he says is more grounded in simple, proper cooking than around the high-concept, modernist techniques he’s most known for.
Created in partnership with Longfellow Real Estate Partners and located at Longfellow’s Biovista development at the corner of Mira Mesa Boulevard and Scranton Road, California English will function as an amenity for the life sciences complex, with catering and grab-and-go options for its on-site biotech workers. Still, Blais told Eater over a phone call that he’s fully intending for the 6,000-square-foot space to bring in a dining audience from beyond its campus confines.
The all-day offerings include a mash-up of SoCal staple avocado toast with the British breakfast of beans on toast, as well as a Cornish pasty filled with oxtail and bone marrow, savory scones served with clotted cream and kumquat marmalade, and a salad version of the traditional ploughman’s lunch. Other UK specialties include Blais’ take on the ultimate fish and chips and chicken tikka masala, widely considered Britain’s national dish.
A real-deal roast dinner, typically consumed in British households on Sundays, will be available all weekend here as a pre-ordered family meal featuring prime rib with Yorkshire pudding and all the fixings.
Blais, the co-host of ‘Next Level Chef’ on FOX, will oversee California English while still supervising his Carlsbad steakhouse Ember & Rye. Telling Eater that he’s still interested in creating more restaurants in San Diego, he’s currently planning an ocean-view rooftop restaurant with Longfellow that’ll be opening nearby at the company’s Bioterra campus.

SAN DIEGO —
San Diego may soon get a new kind of attraction that has been popping up all over the country: a combination driving range, events venue, sports bar and restaurant.
A local developer is proposing a project modeled on the popular Topgolf chain in a relatively undeveloped part of Mira Mesa, just west of the El Camino Memorial Park cemetery and just south of Carroll Canyon Road.
The 55,000-square-foot golf and entertainment complex would feature three stories of driving range bays that would be lighted at night, an events venue large enough for weddings, and a large restaurant with games and TVs showing sports.
It would be the first such venue in Southern California. The nearest golf and entertainment complex is near Sacramento, and a similar facility has been proposed near Los Angeles International Airport.
Such venues have been popularized in recent years by Topgolf, which operates more than 50 golf and entertainment complexes around the world, including facilities near Seattle and Portland.
The facility planned for Mira Mesa would feature 75 driving range bays. It would replace the Sorrento Canyon Golf Center, which opened on the 18-acre site more than 25 years ago and features a ground-level driving range with limited amenities.
“It’s going to be an awesome project,” said Greg Lansing of Lansing Companies, the local developer pursuing the project. “We think it’s a phenomenal location.”
Games available on site will likely include cornhole, billiards and many others, he said.
The venue will create a new after-work option for the many employees at companies clustered in Mira Mesa and nearby Sorrento Valley and University City, Lansing said. But it may also draw customers from across the region, he said.
The site is more than 2 miles from any residential housing, making the nighttime activities unlikely to disturb anyone. The planned extension of Carroll Canyon Road would absorb any additional traffic generated by the new venue.
Lansing said the venue could open as early as 2022, but many hurdles must be overcome before that can happen.
The San Diego Planning Commission last week approved initiating a community plan amendment — a change to Mira Mesa’s growth blueprint — to allow the project.
Planning Commissioners said the developer also will need approvals from multiple state and federal agencies, because the site is in a flood plain and a wildlife corridor.
In addition, the nets and lighting planned for the driving range may disturb birds and other wildlife in the area.
While commissioners expressed some skepticism, they also praised the project.
“This sounds like, if it actually comes to fruition, it can be a really cool place,” Commissioner Vicki Granowitz said.
While community opposition is also possible, the Mira Mesa Community Planning Group voted 18-0 in favor of the project last month.
“It’s a nice little amenity,” Jeffrey Steven, the group’s chairman, said this week. “And it’s in kind of an isolated spot.”
Lansing said another positive is that the new venue won’t have a larger footprint than the existing golf range on the site, which is located at 5605 Carroll Canyon Road.
The City Council must first approve the community plan amendment. Then Lansing must propose the actual project in much more detail before it can be considered by the planning group, the commission and then the council.
