Primary Foot Care
Enough probably can't be said about the importance of healthy feet, literally the foundation for the rest of the human body. We are dedicated to providing each patient the proper treatment and preventive foot care regimen.
Senior & Elderly Foot Care
The elderly are prone to many foot disorders that can leave them compromised or effect balance and gait if not prevented or treated. Arthritis, ingrown toenails, fungal nails, diabetic ulcers, and corns and calluses can be more problematic as we age, so regular checkups and proper preventive care are strongly suggested.
Diabetic Foot Care
Diabetics suffer from 2 major foot problems, Nerve Damage (Peripheral Neuropathy) and the Loss of Circulation (Angiopathy). Diabetic patients should be committed to proper foot care as they are always at risk for developing foot ulcers and infections which, left untreated, lead to gangrene. Common ailments; corns, calluses and ingrown toenails, can become serious and threatening conditions for a diabetic. Hospitalization and, in some cases, amputation of the foot or leg is required.
Hammertoe arises when toes become deformed, crooked or contracted. Treatment begins with wider shoes and padding and, in most cases, orthotics are prescribed to correct the imbalance. Surgical removal of the bone deformity can be offered as an outpatient service if the condition is severe.
