DIABETIC FOOT CARE
Tread Well helps diabetic patients understand how diabetes affect foot health. For example, many diabetics experience numbness or reduced sensation in their feet, making it difficult to detect minor injuries that could develop into significant health risks. Patients learn what to look for and how to maintain good health.
ROUTINE NAIL/FOOT CARE
In a standard patient visit, our chiropodists assess and perform services on your feet, including safely trimming nails, removing fungus, reducing calluses, and inspecting for signs of damage, infection, and other concerns.
A damaged or ingrown toenail can cause extreme pain and infection in the toe. Although infections can be fought using antibiotics, the problem will reoccur if the problematic toenail is not corrected. In some cases, toenail surgery may be necessary. Some minor surgical procedures can be performed in our office by our certified chiropodists.
In a Partial Nail Avulsion (PNA), the chiropodist removes part of the affected toenail on one or both sides. In a Total Nail Avulsion (TNA), the entire toenail is removed. The chiropodist may use medications to prevent regrowth of the toenail, if needed. The procedures are performed under local anesthesia, and may be treated afterwards with topical antibiotics.
Fungal Free Nails™ is a powerful solution for toenails infected with unsightly fungus. Unlike other products on the market, it penetrates the toenail to attack fungus where it lives on the nail bed. The length of treatment depends on the severity of the fungal infection, but most cases will see dramatic improvement within three months. Tread Well is pleased to make this product available to our patients.
