Cold Feet? It Might be PVD.

When the extreme heat of summer in Tennessee begins to subside, and Starbucks announces the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte, we know fall is upon us. Although the weather may still be warm, your feet might already be cold and susceptible to cramps while lying in bed.

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD), or peripheral arterial disease (PAD) could be the reason for cold and cramping in the feet. Peripheral vascular disease is a disease of the blood vessels carrying blood to the legs, stomach or kidneys.

Read our full article for symptoms, testing, and who’s prone to PVD, or schedule an appointment for your own personal assessment!

Here’s what Advanced Foot & Ankle has been up to lately:

Shows & Festivals

In July, we were at the Stonecrest Women’s Show answering attendees questions on their foot care needs.

In August, Dr. Mitchell, Diana & Camille were at the Spring Hill Pay It Forward Festival handing out water bottles and talking with festival goers about their foot care concerns.

Practice Makes Perfect

In July, the doctors headed to the lab to practice their surgical techniques – discussing, reviewing, and performing foot and ankle procedures.

At Advanced Foot & Ankle our podiatrists specialize in both conservative and surgical treatments for conditions of the lower extremity.

Tennessee Podiatric Medical Association (TPMA)

In September, Dr. Mitchell was a guest speaker at the TPMA yearly conference. Dr. Frankfather will also be serving as president of TPMA for the next two years!

If you are having any foot or ankle concerns, schedule an appointment with one of our podiatric specialists today! We’d love to take care of you.
