Consider the benefits for patients to enjoy when they take advantage of the services by the Chiropodist at Elio’s Foot Comfort Centre.
- Toe nail care
For people who find it difficult to reach their feet because of an injury, arthritis in the hips, or if their hands and fingers are unable to use nail clippers, then a Chiropodist can help. In fact, our Chiropodist can also identify certain nail conditions such as thickened or fungal nails that can cause discomfort. Patients will benefit from the necessary treatment to alleviate the problem and enable them to walk pain free.
- Corn/callus/wart removal
Corns and calluses are thickened areas of skin that are caused by increased pressure to that area. Although this problem can be painful, regularly scheduled treatments by a Chiropodist will benefit a patient by using techniques such as pads and orthotics to reduce pain and pressure.
- Fungal infection treatment
Fungal infections such as Athletes Foot are common and prosper in warm moist areas such as the space in between toes. Such an infection can be quite uncomfortable causing itching, flaking skin, peeling and cracks in the skin. A Chiropodist is trained to provide advice on an effective treatment that would be suitable. Additionally, a Chiropodist can tackle any fungus that has spread to the nails.
- Preventative care for diabetic patients
Foot care for patients with diabetes is very important. Individuals with diabetes tend to heal slower from cuts and injury due to a decrease in the body’s ability to fight infection as well as decreased circulation especially to parts farthest from the heart such as feet. In addition, diabetes can cause nerve damage in the feet, which alters a person’s protective sensation. As a recommended solution, regular visits with a Chiropodist at Elio’s would include detailed assessments of the feet, observation for any cause of concern and injury and the required treatment.
- Diabetic ulcers
An ulcer is commonly referred to as a break or wound in the normal integrity of the skin. An ulcer can form due to decreased sensation within the feet or decreased circulation, which can occur with diabetes. An ulcer can increase the risk of infection and possible amputation if treatment is not implemented. Consultations could cover evaluation of the wound, reducing pressure, offloading, footwear advice, dressings and work with the patient to achieve proper healing
Overall, patients can benefit from the expert service provided by the Chiropodist at Elio’s where we create custom solutions to make feet healthy and happy.
