Yes: However, a podiatrist does this day and day out. I would highly recommend you see a podiatrist.

Why not ask them?: For the most part, i believe they will defer to a podiatrist. It is hard for a primary care doc to keep instruments for every type of scenerio. This is why we have specialists.

Yes.: Podiatrists do it more often, though, so if you're able to, see the specialist.
