Toe and Foot Transformations

“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.

Why Do You Have To Wear Your Compression Socks Consistently

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.
