Common Pathologies encountered
The most obvious sign of Bunion or Hallux Valgus (medical term) is a bulging lump on the joint. It might hurt and be swollen or red. It also reduce mobility on your big toe. Most of the foot bunions are linked to over pronated feet. In order to maintain the overall foot balance the first toe will act as a mechanical reaction move to the opposite direction, making a deviation called bunion.
Orthotics or Insoles are similar to inserts, but with the important distinction of being custom made. This means that they will be designed to address not only the specific issue that you have, but they will also be designed to fit your feet perfectly, not approximately. This greatly increases their effectiveness in reducing pain and correcting existing posture problems.
Depending on the condition and gravity of the ingrowing Nail, the treatment or method can be different to prevent pressure from each side of the Nail Against the Skin. Medical Pedicure by certified podiatrist to remove the Nail Splint growing inside the Skin on the Side of the Nail Paladur. Technique similar to teeth care, the corner of the nail will be cleaned to create an empty space for the skin to grow.
Ingrown Toe Nail
A foot analysis platform is a machine that helps evaluate your postural health. Thousands of sensors record and perform gait analysis generating 2D and 3D images. After you are scanned, the machine creates a digital image of your feet that shows your weight distribution on each foot and indicates any imbalances or weaknesses in your feet.
3D Foot Analysis
Nail Care includes:
Filing and Cutting Nails properly, Fixing Ingrown Nails, Damaged Nails and Nail Fungus. Finishing with Nail Buffing. These are all taken care of after consultation
Could Lower Back Pain be caused by wrong foot alignment? The entire body structure is composed of muscular chains, with one link, or bone, connecting at the joint to another link. If the first link; the Foot, is out of position, means the next link would eventually over-stress that link and adversely escalated to affect the entire chain and the lower back in particular.
Lower Back Pain
Removing corn, calluses, cracks or dead skin is a must in order to stop the pain or losing sensitivity of the skin. A medical Pedicure by using a small blade or a scalpel is the direct first treatment but in the long term massaging the area with a foot cream will help.
Examples that misalignment can generate injuries.such as:
1) Genu Valgum
Commonly called "knock-knee", which is a condition in which the knees angle in and touch each other when the legs are straightened.
2) Bow legs (or Genu Varum)
When the legs curve outward at the knees while the feet and ankles touch. Infants and toddlers often have bow legs.
There are four different Arch Types. Come see me for a consultation to see which one you are:
Pain on the bottom of your foot, around your heel and arch, often caused by repetitive motion or anything that puts a lot pressure on the arch of your foot.
Orthotics or Insoles are required.
