The traditional prescription for foot and ankle sprains has always been “RICE” — rest, ice, compression, and elevation. It sounds simple enough for patients to do at home, but researchers say the rules need a little explaining — and some updating, too. Naturally, our NYC podiatrists want you to come in for an evaluation before you attempt to self-diagnose and treat yourself.
Hispanics and Latinos make up 27.5% of New York City’s population. This group suffers from foot pain and health issues like any other, yet they tend to be more reluctant to seek professional help. The first step toward wellness is asking your primary doctor to check your feet and give you a referral to a foot and ankle specialist who can offer state-of-the-art care. Dr. Mariola Rivera, DPM is a friend to Hispanics and Latinos in the New York City area who are looking for a Spanish-speaking, board-certified podiatrist to add to their healthcare team.

The Star-Telegram called Dirk Nowitzki “the greatest player to put on a Dallas Mavericks uniform.” Though he’s ranked the sixth-leading NBA scorer in history, Nowitzki missed 25 games this season with a strained right Achilles tendon. With 11 wins and 26 losses this season, the Mavs could certainly using the scoring power right about now. He began clocking minutes earlier this month, averaging between 20 and 30 — which is a workload he can handle, says Mavericks beat writer Eddie Sefko, that should “allow him to remain one of the most dangerous offensive weapons on the team.”
“Suicide Squad” bombshell Cara Delevigne recently spoke about her experiences with palmar-plantar psoriasis, telling the Daily Mailthat her grueling modeling schedule brought on flare-ups of the embarrassing scabs, which she tried to cover up with heavy makeup. “People would put on gloves and not want to touch me because they thought it was, like, leprosy or something,” said the 22-year-old actress.
New York City foot surgeons servicing millions of people in a primarily urban area have a very different job than foot surgeons in, say, Stowe, Vermont (population 4,339), or McPherson County, Kansas. There is a misconception about podiatrists and podiatric surgeons that our bread-and-butter lies in “old people with painful bunions” or those who need a good pedicure. As our name — The Center For Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine — suggests, we see a lot of active, fit, healthy, and young individuals who are suffering from debilitating traumatic injuries and chronic foot pain. Here are the most common reasons for reconstructive foot surgery in NYC …

Dancing is a popular athletic activity in White Plains, New York. We are blessed with so many of the best NYC dance studios in our backyard — Arthur Murray Dance School, City Center Dance, and Steffi Nossen, to name a few. Dancing requires the utmost strength and a tremendous amount of dedication, but sometimes the long hours of practice and rigorous activity lead to injury. It’s good to have a foot and ankle specialist as your ally in these cases. We are fully equipped to diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate any lower extremity injury with the latest technology and techniques. We treat the root cause of the problem, not just the symptoms, and believe in the importance of patient education and injury prevention as part of the individualized care we deliver.
Most people have a small gap under the arch when they stand. Babies and some adults have completely flat feet, which may or may not cause symptoms of pain. When the connecting ligaments and muscles are strained, patients may suffer pain beyond the immediate foot arches and inner ankle — and up through the calves, hips, knees, and back, as well. The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine offices in Manhattan and White Plains, NY, offer a number of non-invasive therapies to help people suffering from this type of pain. The worst cases can also be treated with Subtalar Joint Arthroereisis by one of our experienced board-certified podiatric surgeons.
“I am so grateful for having had Dr. Geldwert perform bunion surgery on both of my feet. I have complete confidence in him and continue to see him for other sports related injuries. I was cautious about having surgery for the first time, but his knowledge, patience, and skill made me completely comfortable in trusting him. And I couldn’t be any happier with the results!! When anything else feels wrong with my feet, I love that I now know to go immediately to him. He is my top choice for anyone searching for the best foot fixer/surgeon/sports doctor in NYC! Thank you, Dr. Geldwert!!!”
