At Foundation Chiropody, we want to help our patients be able to complete their daily activities without pain. We start with an assessment, quickly followed by a treatment plan designed to diminish your pain. When you meet with one of our chiropodists, they may suggest one of the following solutions:
Foundation Chiropody uses the latest technology to assess your problems. First, we conduct a biomechanical assessment to obtain a 3D laser image of your feet. Using this 3D image, we make a plaster of your feet. This plaster is then used to construct your custom footwear.
A solution to help mitigates the pain for our patients is custom orthopedic shoes. Orthopedic footwear can provide therapeutic control or support if you suffer from a foot deformity or abnormality in your leg and ankle. What so special about orthopedic shoes is that it has a firm heel, wide toe box, moderate heel and extra room in case feet swell. These soles balance the foot, alleviating any excess pressure you may experience.
Here are some advantages of using orthopedic shoes. They are:
Get quality orthopedic footwear from Foundation Chiropody! We also provide diabetic foot care.
If you are suffering from bunions or corns, then foot pads made from gel, foam or felt may help alleviate pain. These adhesive pads protect your feet from rubbing against the shoe, which could make sore spots more painful.
If your legs and ankles are swollen, or you are suffering from varicose veins, active/healed venous ulcers, venous insufficiency, compression stockings can help you. These stockings are designed with gradient compression, which means they are the tightest at your feet and ankle in order to help the flow of fluid back up your legs. When you stand or sit, gravitational force helps the fluid to build up in your legs. With compression stockings therapy, your blood circulation will improve.
Help your tired or achy legs feel energized with the reduction of fluid build-up in your veins/legs with compression stockings. The stockings are available in different gradients (strengths) and lengths.
