This job is my recital, I think it’s very vital, to blog about, and spend some time, talking about, that’s right hammertoes! Hammertoes are a condition that can be either passed down from your parents, or caused by a simple pair of shoes. At the Dakota Foot & Ankle Clinic, Dr. Brian Gale, DPM, FACFAS can perform a very quick procedure where he can lengthen the tendon that has become tight causing the hammertoes. This procedure takes less than 5 minutes. After the procedure, a nice pair of properly fit shoes from Happy Soles Footwear would be a great way to prevent this from happening again. For more info, check out Hammertoes.  If you think you might be interested in this procedure Contact Us at 701-255-3338 to set up an appointment with Dr. Brian Gale, DPM, FACFAS.  He will be able to discuss with you if this is the best treatment option.

War of the warts!

Some people call them warts, some call them plantar warts, I like to call them aggravating, but the medical term Dr. Gale uses is verruca. Verruca on your feet can be irritating to say the least. At The Dakota Foot & Ankle Clinic we like to treat them as a war with many battles. Even though you can cut a wart off, burn it, freeze it, there’s still a chance that it can come back. With Dr. Gale, a Foot & Ankle Specialist, you’re in very capable hands. For a more in depth look at the treatment of warts, check out more information HERE.  If you are interested in setting up an appointment with Dr. Brian Gale, DPM, FACFAS Contact Us today!

Putting the kibosh on capsulitis

By Dylan Hocking, CNA

Capsulitis is one of the most common things Dr. Brian Gale see’s here at the Dakota Foot & Ankle Clinic. Basically capsulitis is an inflammation of a joint in your foot. One way to improve capsulitis would be to stop into Happy Soles Footware and get some low heeled dress shoes. By making some slight changes to your every day routines, you might be able to capture capsulitis by the tail! If you really want to dive into some interesting stuff on capsulitis visit our Capsulitis page.  To find out more information about treating capsulitis Contact Us today to set up an appointment with Dr. Brian Gale, DPM, FACFAS.
