Affiliated Foot & Ankle Care is eager to have a positive impact the community that surrounds us.  “People do not think about foot and ankle pain until it interferes with their quality of life.” says Dr. Nrupa Shah.  “Our mission along with providing top quality foot and ankle care, is to educate people on how to prevent pain in their lower extremities whenever possible.”  On Tuesday, 3/19/13 from 9:00am – 10:00am at the South Plainfield Senior Center located at 90 Maple Avenue in South Plainfield, Dr. Shah will be providing a presentation on preventative steps that can be taken to protect the foot and ankles.  Following this, Dr. Shah will be providing free foot and ankle screenings for those who are interested from 10:00am – 11:00am.  This educational event will cover the most basic of foot and ankle care such as cutting toenails or what creams are safe to use, to the more serious aspects of foot and ankle care such as those with diabetes or arthritis.  “The goal of this presentation and providing the foot screenings is to educate our community on how to avoid serious complication of the foot and ankle.  People tend not the think of their feet until there is a problem, but your feet are like the tires on a car; if you get a flat tire, you cannot get anywhere you want to go”, says Dr. Nrupa Shah.  This free event will be taking place at the South Plainfield Senior Center on Tuesday, 3/19/13 from 9:00am – 11:00am.  If you plan to attend, please RSVP by calling the South Plainfield Senior Center at (908) 754-1047 and make sure to reserve a space if you would like a free foot and ankle screening by the doctor.  For more information about Affiliated Foot & Ankle Care, they can be contacted at (732) 662-3050 or by visiting www.FootandAnkleNj.com.  Affiliated Foot & Ankle Care is located at 2163 Oak Tree Road, Suite 108 in Edison and have a second location at 294 Applegarth Road in Monroe, NJ.
