Not all thickened nails are fungal – but the treatment is similar. After careful assessment, we work to decrease the thickness of the offending nail in order to reduce pressure caused by shoes and activity. Application of antifungal tinctures if required.
Careful assessment is performed to alleviate the contributing factors or cause of the calluses. Reduction of thickened skin occurs to alleviate pressure and discomfort. Followed by application of lotion/cream to keep areas soft and subtle.
Careful assessment is made to footwear and skin condition of the affected toes. If calluses or corns are present, they are reduced, and padding may be applied to alleviate any ongoing tenderness.
Careful assessment is performed to alleviate the contributing factors or cause of the corn. Reduction of thickened skin occurs to alleviate pressure and discomfort. Padding may also be utilized as an added comfort measure.
Careful assessment is performed at each visit to evaluate the condition of the circulation, temperature, range of motion and sensations of the lower limbs as well as assessments of footwear and environmental factors. Sterile tools are utilized, and all creams/lotions are medically recognized as safe products.
Careful assessment is performed to determine and remedy the cause of the ingrown nail. The corner of the ingrown nail will be trimmed and filed back to facilitate healing and promote normal nail growth.
“I just had the most amazing foot care treatment from my wonderful foot care nurse! She was so attentive and gentle with my feet, and I feel like I’m walking on air. It’s been a long time since my feet felt this good, and I’m grateful for her expertise and kindness. I’m looking forward to my next appointment with her already! Thank you so much for taking such good care of me and my feet.”
