You rely on your feet and ankles to take you just about everywhere you need to go, and help you do everything you love to do.
They are also highly complex structures, and susceptible to a wide variety of injuries, accidents, and even illnesses. And when your feet aren’t functioning as well as they should, the consequences to your quality of life—and even your long-term health—can be devastating if you don’t take action.
At Family Foot Care & Surgery, we provide a range of services to keep your feet operating as effectively and painlessly as possible. Some of these services include:
In the medical world, the “tools of the trade” are constantly being updated as new techniques are developed and new discoveries are made. While experience and personalized care go a long way, it’s important that we keep pace with these developments so you can continue to receive the highest quality care!
Some of the tools at our disposal include:
- Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy. This regenerative procedure uses “shockwaves” to boost your body’s own natural healing processes and accelerate recovery—without drugs or discomfort.
- Swift Therapy for Warts. This breakthrough approach to treating warts uses short bursts of microwaves (just 2 seconds in duration) to help your immune system eliminate warts effectively from the inside out, rather than using harsh chemicals or surgery.
- Laser Therapy for Toenails. Laser energy can pass through the nail and eradicate the fungus underneath, without harming healthy skin and tissue. It’s a safer, more effective, and more convenient option than oral antifungals.
- Diagnostic Tools. Our office is equipped with digital X-ray and ultrasound on site to facilitate quick, accurate diagnoses and personalized treatment procedures right from the initial appointment.
3D Custom Orthotics and Arch Support
A large percentage of foot problems—and even pain that radiates up into the knees, hips, and back—can stem from a fundamental structural imbalance in your feet. If your feet can’t balance weight and pressure effectively, or joints don’t move quite the way that they should, the resulting alignment issues can throw your entire body off kilter.
Fortunately, many of these imbalances can be solved with a carefully selected pair of arch supports. Mild pain and discomfort usually respond well to an over-the-counter option as long as it’s been selected by an expert who understands your foot condition. More serious problems may require custom orthotics. Think of them like reading glasses or prescription glasses, except for your feet instead of your eyes.
