When you think about how complex our feet are, and how much strain they undergo throughout the course of our lives, it’s no wonder the numerous things that can go wrong.The pain you are experiencing may be due to something simple or caused by a combination of issues and, if left undiagnosed and untreated can evolve into a much more serious condition, which in extreme cases result in debilitating or permanent loss of mobility.
If you are experiencing any type of persistent pain in the foot or ankle, do not ignore it, contact our office today to schedule an evaluation and STEP OUT OF THE PAIN!
Here are just a few common problems that can lead to pain and discomfort to your feet and ankles:

FOOT CARE TIPS
Follow these simple tips and you will be making great strides in maintaining foot health.
- Remember that foot pain is not normal and should never be ignored.
- Inspect your feet regularly, paying close attention to color changes, foot temperature and changes in the toenails, as well as cracks, cuts, peeling, scaling or any growths.
- Wash your feet daily, being sure to wash and dry thoroughly between your toes.
- Toenails should be trimmed straight across…but not too short!
- Properly fitted shoes are important. Shop for new shoes later in the day when feet are at their largest.
- Wear moisture-absorbing socks.
- Do not walk barefoot, as this will increase your chances of injury or infection.
- Care for your feet by moisturizing them (but not in between the toes).
- Do not attempt to treat ailments by yourself.

Gary Rothrock, DDS
FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE CERTIFIED HEALTH COACH
Hello, my name is Gary Rothrock. I am the Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach at Bradenton East Integrative Medicine. I am also a retired dentist and Navy officer. I addressed my own health issues with functional medicine, which inspired me to become a Certified Health Coach so I could help others take control of their health.
I graduated from the Georgetown University School of Dentistry in Washington, D.C. and entered the Navy as a Lieutenant in the Dental Corp. After my service with the Navy I started my own dental practice in Stratford, CT. I settled there for 35 years with my wife and raised two wonderful daughters. We are now blessed with four beautiful grandchildren.
Upon retiring from dentistry, we moved to Bradenton, FL. Unfortunately, at this time I had a number of very serious health issues. By the grace of God and with the help of some amazing doctors, I have fully recovered. I now enjoy biking, boating, dog walking, the YMCA, the beaches, and socializing with our friends. Functional medicine was a key part of my recovery, and it led me to enroll in the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy so I could help other people change their lives for the better.
As the Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach at Bradenton East Integrative Medicine, I am here to help you achieve lifestyle change for better health. Together we will create unique goals that work just for you, tailored to your specific needs and preferences. We can work together on a variety of issues like better sleep, stress reduction, sustained weight loss, memory issues, movement or exercises, and relationships. I have overcome many health challenges in my own life by applying the same principles I learned at the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy.
Don’t feel bad or give up if you’re having trouble acting on the plan that your doctor or provider created for you. Making healthy changes is hard for most people, but personalized coaching can help make it much easier. If you’re having trouble, please come and see me. I know together we can make significant improvements in your health.
