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.

One of our regular foot care clients showed up at the clinic today with this toe! They were camping and injured it just 2 weeks ago! This is the effects only 14 days caused. Its very lucky this client keeps his regular foot care treatment and screening appointments. We were able to get the wound debrided and cleaned up.
Compression Socks doesn’t have to be a daily struggle! Yes, they’re snug. They are supposed to be – that’s what makes them medically useful. But that’s also why it can be difficult to put on compression socks, especially over the heel and ankle. Unfortunately, when people get discouraged, they don’t wear them consistently – and the swelling in their lower legs and ankles tends to get worse rather than better.
A wart is a small growth on the skin that develops when the skin is infected by a virus. Warts can develop anywhere on the foot, but typically they appear on the bottom (plantar side) of the foot.
We regularly see clients in our office with troublesome toenails that probably started becoming diseased sometime ago. Most of these clients have been getting pedicures for years. Some were lead in the direction that it was just due to age or told not to be too concerned.
