Why You May Need a Chiropodist
Foot pain, whether you are experiencing pain at the nails, skin, heel or ball of your foot, should not be ignored. Your foot health is an integral determinant of the quality of your life.
At Integra Health Centre, our chiropodist can help you navigate through your pains and ailments involving your feet to help better your overall lifestyle. Our chiropodist looks to address your pain as soon as possible to be able to treat it, as well as prevent further complications down the road.
A Registered Chiropodist is a primary health care professional who specializes in the assessment, management and prevention of dysfunctions, disorders and diseases of the foot.
Here are a few benefits of visiting a chiropodist for a foot check:
Checking For Nail Abnormalities
Your toenails are much more susceptible to changes and infections than your fingernails — mainly due to their vulnerability to damage or trauma. Toenails can become thickened, discoloured, curved and painful.
If you start noticing these changes, book an appointment with our Chiropodist at Integra Health Centre to help safely manage these changes and determine the cause, ruling out fungus or an ingrown toenail.
Checking for Skin Disorders
Your feet spend a lot of time in a closed space — either in a pair of shoes or a pair of socks. If you exercise regularly or if your feet are naturally sweaty, this introduces another factor: moisture.
All these things increase the chance of getting Athlete’s foot or a plantar wart. Hard calluses and deep corns can also cause pain. However, these issues can easily be treated by a chiropodist.
Correcting Foot Function
It’s likely that the underlying cause of your foot pain is from how your foot moves through your gait.
With time, these abnormal movements can cause strain — and sometimes, even permanent damages in the soft tissues and joints. Addressing the issue sooner, rather than later, with proper footwear advice, stretches, taping and/or custom foot orthotics has immense benefits for you and your feet.
A foot specialist knows the ins and outs of foot health and is able to treat a very wide spectrum of foot problems with various treatment options. Get your feet on the right path toward good health today.
