DIABETIC FOOT CARE AND EDUCATION
At Tread Well, our team of chiropodists and podiatrists help diabetic patients understand how diabetes affects 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. This is why we help our patients learn what to look for and how to maintain good health. Our detailed approach to educating diabetic patients on foot health makes us one of the leading foot clinics in Burlington, Ontario.
ROUTINE NAIL/FOOT CARE
In a standard patient visit, our chiropodists and podiatrists assess and perform services on your feet. This includes safely trimming nails, removing fungus and reducing calluses, in addition to inspecting feet and nails for signs of damage, infection and other concerns.
A damaged or ingrown toenail can cause extreme pain and infection in the toe. Though infections can be fought using antibiotics, the problem is likely to recur 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, who are amongst some of the leading practitioners in Burlington, Ontario.
In a Partial Nail Avulsion (PNA), the chiropodist will remove 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 that have been 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.
