(PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Adler Footcare of Greater New York cares about its patients and the people of New York who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. Foot problems are more common in the aftermath of a large storm. If someone does not have a podiatrist or is looking for one, both Adler Footcare locations in Manhattan and White Plains are open and operating providing access to a New York Podiatrist who is ready and willing to help treat foot problems caused by the recent storms.
Although health hazards like pulmonary problems are a main concern, injuries to the feet are the kind of thing that someone might not think about in the aftermath of a storm, but they can be significant, especially for young children and the elderly. Many people have returned to find their homes extremely flooded. As the flood waters sit they become increasingly unsanitary, affected by sewer leakage and other toxins. The process of clean up while wading through inches or feet of water can cause foot problems like cuts, allowing bacteria to seep in and lead to infection.
If someone needs treatment they are encouraged to see their podiatrist. If someone is looking for a podiatrist in New York to help with foot problems or foot pain they can learn more by contacting Adler Footcare at http://www.mynycpodiatrist.com.
