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 Rancho Bernardo, 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 Rancho Bernardo? 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 Rancho Bernardo, 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 Rancho Bernardo, 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 Rancho Bernardo, 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 Rancho Bernardo.
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 Rancho Bernardo 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 Rancho Bernardo, 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 Rancho Bernardo, 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 Rancho Bernardo, 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 Rancho Bernardo, 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.
If you’ve been enduring foot or ankle pain that affects your mobility and quality of life, why not make a change for the better? At North County Foot & Ankle Specialists, our podiatrists in Escondido help patients of all ages. Drs. Morris and Redkar take a patient-first approach with all of our podiatry services.

In the face of fire-friendly weather conditions, the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and crews from other agencies held a fire that sparked near homes in Rancho Bernardo Monday afternoon to 5 acres.
The Escala Fire started on a hillside along Escala Drive in a neighborhood just east of Interstate 15 at around 2:30 p.m. Flames crept up the hillside of the southern-most "mountain" in the Battle Mountian Open Space, toward the freeway and away from homes, thanks to gusts pushing the fire north.
SDFD and several other agencies, including the Poway, Escondido, Rancho Santa Fe and Escondido fire departments, battled the blaze. Close to 100 firefighters responded, including hand crews that hiked the mini mountain to cut containment lines.
Firefighting helicopters scooped water from Lake Hodges on the other side of the freeway and made several drops over the flames. Fire engines blocked the two right lanes of northbound I-15 causing traffic delays for most of the afternoon.
By 3:30 p.m., most of the active flames were out, according to SDFD, but crews stayed at the scene past sunset. SDFD said a 16-unit condo complex on Caminito Cantilena plus 10 homes in the area were evacuated as an early precaution before the buildings were actually "threatened" by the flames. The evacuations were lifted after 4 p.m.
Brush fire in Rancho Bernardo held to 5 acres
NBC 7's Dave Summers reports from Rancho Bernardo after a wildifre sparked amind dry, breezy conditions.
The scenario brought back vivid memories for Steve Smith, who dodged the Witch Creek Fire in 2007.
"I was worried it was going to spread because in 2007 it was in Julian, and when I went to sleep — it got here overnight. I knew if the winds picked up it would affect the whole neighborhood," said Escala Drive resident Steve Smith.
Last Wednesday marked the 20th anniversary of the Cedar Fire, which, along with the Paradise Fire and the Otay Fire, killed more than a dozen people and charred 280,000 acres.
SDFD confirmed the Escala Fire started along Escala Drive close to where a construction crew was working on a fire hydrant. The exact cause hasn’t been determined.
A photographer shared footage with NBC 7 of a crew scrambling to open the hydrant a few feet away from what appeared to be a temporary break area along the road. There were foldable camping chairs, portable bathrooms and a handwashing station.
The fire sparked amid elevated fire danger brought on by Santa Ana winds, which bring warmer air over the East San Diego County mountains that dries out brush and drops humidity, especially in inland communities. Shortly after the fire started, an NWS fire station near Rancho Bernardo recorded 11% humidity and winds at around 10 mph, according to NBC 7's Greg Bledsoe. Those wind speeds are manageable in the context of firefighting, especially considering a wind advisory was in effect (possible winds up to 25 mph with gusts up to 50 mph) for much of the county.
The direction of the wind helped push the fire up the hill away from the neighborhood and toward I-15.
Bardia Shahriari, who also lives on Escala Drive, said he had never seen a fire so close. Coincidently, he and his mother created a list of things to pack in case of such an emergency just yesterday.
“I came out and saw the view. I was really scared at first I didn’t know what to do," Shahriari said.
Smith, having come close to tragedy once before, was prepared, too.
“I actually have everything, my valuables, in a box so I put that in my car and then I just waited. I was going to be ready," he said.

SAN DIEGO — San Diego Fire-Rescue crews are working on a multi-acre brush fire that broke out near the Interstate 15 through Rancho Bernardo.
The fire, named the Escala Fire, was reported just before 2:30 p.m. near the intersection of Escala Drive and Chretien Court, SDFD said in an incident report.
As of 5:10 p.m., the fire is 90% contained, according to fire officials. Crews will remain at the scene for another five hours until the fire is fully extinguished.
Around 4 p.m., five acres had burned, moving at a slow rate of spread despite a heavy presence of vegetation fuel in the area.
A total of 52 personnel have been assigned, including five engines and two helicopters. At 3:44 p.m., SDFD called off the second aircraft.
A smoke advisory was issued by the North County Fire Protection District for the fire around 3:30 p.m.
Ten homes were evacuated near the brush fire, as well as one condo complex of sixteen units on Caminito Cantilena, SDFD said. However, as of 4:45 p.m., those residents were cleared to return to their homes.
Two northbound I-15 lanes at W Bernardo Drive were closed by California Highway Patrol as crews work to contain and extinguish the fire, fire crews added.
A SigAlert was issued in the incident, with anticipated delays of up to an hour.
The fire comes as the first significant Santa Ana wind event this year nears its peak in the region, contributing to “critical” fire conditions with widespread single-digit humidity.
A wind advisory issued for inland communities — including Escondido and Poway, which borders Rancho Bernardo — will remain in effect until 5 p.m. Wednesday.
During this time, winds are anticipated to reach 20 to 25 miles per hour with individual gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour, NWS says.
FOX 5 has a crew headed to the scene. Check back for updates.
