Why Your Feet Need Your Attention

You might not have noticed, but your feet do a lot of work. By the time you reach the age of 50, you’ll have walked 75 thousand miles using the same pair of feet. Medically speaking, your feet are complex structures, consisting of delicate small and large bones, connected with each other through intricate design of tendons and ligaments – requiring each component to fit and work together perfectly to keep you moving. Thus, medical science now dedicates a separate brach just to the disorders related to feet – Podiatry, and since then, podiatry in Upland has come a long way.

As leading podiatrists in Upland, Empire Foot and Ankle believes it is very important to identify foot problem early in their course, so you can avoid deformity in your feet later. Here are some symptoms that warrant a visit to an Upland foot doctor:

  • Foot pain
  • Thick or discolored toenails
  • Cracks or cuts in your skin
  • Growths like warts
  • Scaling on peeling on your soles

What Our Patients Say About Us

  • By far and away, the best doc I have seen. He got rid of my foot pain instantly and had very entertaining conversation while doing so. My previous doc wanted to do surgery on both of my feet that would take six weeks of recovery for each foot. Dr. Beral was able to fix my problem with orthotics instead!
  • Dr. Didari is outstanding!  I was able to get in for a last minute appointment for a foot injury and she was thorough, professional and helpful.  I am a pretty active runner and biker and he was able to give me the full rundown of what was going on with my foot- besides what the initial injury- and things I may consider to prevent injury and better alignment going forward.
    Bottom line: I will definitely be recommending him to my friends.
  • I went to Empire Foot and Ankle Center yesterday for the first time. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Front Desk staff were very sweet. I won't go into too many details, but I have had my foot issue for 5-6 years. I had seen about 3 doctors about it who all sent me to purchase expensive prescriptions that didn't work. I saw Dr. Didari, told him what hadn't worked in the past, and he offered to perform a small procedure the same day (which helps so I don't have to miss more work than necessary) and I was out of there within an hour and a half. I really appreciated his honesty and straight-forwardness. He was very to the point but made sure I left feeling 100% confident about everything. I got home and told my roommate that I wish I could just go back and hang out with the staff because they were so nice, knowledgeable, and down to earth. I would recommend this doctor to anyone that asked. If you don't live close, it is still worth the drive.
  • An amazing and thorough examination as well as detailed explanations for aftercare and cause. His bedside manner and friendly office staff just added icing to an already tasty cake! If I could give Dr. Beral a 6 star rating I would!
  • I've known Dr. Didari for years; great patient bedside manner and his surgical skills are unmatched!  Under his care, you are always in good hands.
  • All around the best doctors office I have ever visited. Kind staff, nice office, and very knowledgeable doctors. I've visited many different podiatrists for my bad ankle, and none of them were able to figure out/ really give me a concrete diagnosis for my constant pain, leaving me both still in pain, and venturing elsewhere for medical help. Dr. Beral took his time observing and analyzing my ankle and sending me towards the rightful path of recovery. I've never felt better.
  • I have to say that Empire Foot and Ankle Center by far have the BEST foot and ankle doctors in the inland empire. Their staff is great, helpful and always put the patients first. Dr. Didari and Dr. Beral go out of their way to provide the most excellent care for their patients and spend time to treat you and make sure they get you back on your feet. They use the newest technology and most innovative medical care. They had me back on my feet in no time, I brought all my family to them!!

Understanding Your Feet

There are a number of anatomical components that make up the human foot and ankle. Since most of the foot structures have a rather superficial anatomical placement, it is easy for your foot doctor in Upland to know which part is affected in an injury. The different structures that make up your foot include bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves. The foot is made up of 26 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, traditionally divided into three areas, the forefoot, the midfoot, and the hindfoot.

The forefoot is the part of your foot containing the 5 toe bones (the phalanges) and the five longer bones – the metatarsals.

The midfoot is formed by a pyramid-like collection of bones – namely cuneiform bones, the cuboid bone, and the navicular bone.

The hindfoot is formed by the talus and the calcaneus (the heel bone). The talus bone supports the bones in your calf (tibia and fibula), forming the ankle. Calcaneforms the largest bone in your foot.

What To Expect From Your First Visit to a Podiatrist

Podiatry is a branch of medicine that deals with foot problems, so your visit to a podiatrist will be a lot like a visit to your doctor. They will inquire about your medical, surgical, and medication history and any prior foot problems that you had as well as any medical conditions that run in your family.

Your upland podiatrist will examine your feet by making you stand and walk. He will check the range of motion in all sets of joints in your feet. A lot of foot problems are a result of ill-fitting shoes, so your doctor will see how your shoes fit. Your first visit to a podiatrist can offer you treatment for ingrown toenails, bunions, heel, and lower back pain, and tips to get circulation in your feet better if you have diabetes. If you have any foot deformities, they will also be identified during your first visit.

    Update 2021: Hilarious. My split half totally grew back. Was this the 2nd doctor to do a poor job of burning the nail bed closed? Or is my half toenail supernatural? Who can say. ------- After a severe trauma 7 years ago with another foot doctor taking care of an ingrown toenail, leaving me with a split toenail starting at the nail bed, I was skeptical about the process with another doctor. I basically lived with 2 toenails, one trying to overlap the other. It wasn't a huge issue but it was uncomfortable and inconvenient. When I was kickboxing this summer I pulled back the smaller one because it was raised off my toe a little bit. I knew it was time to do something. The shots hurt as much as I remembered, but the process was smooth and my toe never hurt after. I was worried when the numbness went away I was going to be in agony. At no point did I need any pain medication following my procedure. I'm very happy with this office and I would recommend it to anyone who is suffering an ingrown and would like to chemically burn the nail bed closed. For just getting a regular ingrown cleaned up, they are also great! They burned one side closed and cleaned up the other side and I haven't been uncomfortable since.

    When I arrived I was signed in quickly and they reviewed my benefits with me so I could be aware of how much I’d have to pay. I was taken in within 5-10 minutes, and only waited in the exam room for 3-5 minutes before Dr. Breshears came in. She was very thorough with her questions and provided all the information I needed to understand what my condition is. She was gentle with my very painful feet. She gave me two options for one of my issues, and outlined the plan of action for the other problem. She and the nurse were very friendly. I left feeling like I was well taken care of. Thanks, Empire Foot and Ankle!
