A foot care nurse has received additional specialized training in foot care. Many diabetics, seniors and busy adults have difficulty taking care of their feet due to poor mobility, eyesight, loss of strength in their hands or family and work life. At times, even the best of us can’t see the bottom of our feet.
“Clients are at risk when a nail becomes thick and yellow. Routine Treatment is to reduce as much of the dead and diseased nail as possible leaving a thin nail to grow in and maintain. Thick nails put pressure and put them at risk for damage or even a ulcer underneath” We use podiatry burrs of many shapes and sizes to quickly reduce and reshape. Thick nails can cause pressure underneath leading to micro bleeds. We assess why your nails are sick and have the ability to do a fungal nail test via the lab. We have several options for treatment.
We have the perfect size company and foot care nursing staff to handle and properly take care of of any foot care contract. We practice in homes as small as 20 residents to much larger contracts serving 200 residents!
We are exceeding all new mandated regulations for personal protective equipment and disinfecting our rooms and equipment inbetween clients!
Peripheral neuropathy is damage of the peripheral nerves. Your peripheral nerves are the nerves that travel to your arms and legs. When the nerves are damaged, they don’t function properly. People with peripheral neuropathy have decreased or abnormal sensation in their toes and fingers. Sometimes, they develop problems moving these parts of the body as well.
