CUSTOM FOOT ORTHOTICS

Custom foot orthotics are shoe inserts prescribed by chiropodists to change the body’s biomechanics when performing activities such as running or walking. Before prescribing orthotics, a chiropodist observes how the patient walks.

CUSTOM ANKLE FOOT ORTHOSIS

An Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) is a type of brace that is fitted to ankle and the foot. The chiropodist can design an AFO for a variety of purposes, including controlling the motion of the ankle while walking, compensating for weaknesses, and correcting deformities. AFO are based on a casting of the ankle and foot and can be built with hinges for movement, or rigidly for support.

DIABETIC FOOT CARE

DIABETIC EDUCATION

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.

NAIL SURGERY

services-3

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.

WART REMOVAL

services-4

Plantar Warts are painful bumps on the soles of the feet caused by a virus. Besides shaving off the wart itself, the underlying root must be destroyed to prevent the wart from recurring and spreading. A chemical is applied to the root with a cotton swab. The number of applications and visits required for permanent removal depends on the severity of the wart or cluster of warts.

COMPRESSION SOCKS

Compression socks and stockings support veins in the lower limbs by squeezing the legs. Although they resemble regular socks and stockings, they have greater elastic power. Compression provides therapeutic benefits for many disorders of the veins.

TOPICAL MEDICATIONS

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.
