THE FOOT CLINIC

What is Podiatry?
Podiatry consists of the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of medical and surgical conditions of the feet and lower limbs. Podiatrists treat conditions such as those resulting from bone and joint disorders such as arthritis and soft-tissue and muscular pathologies.
Podiatrists are also able to diagnose and treat any complications of the above which affect the lower limb, including skin and nail disorders, corns, calluses and ingrown toenails. They also diagnose and treat foot injuries and infections gained through sport or other activities.
Theresa's strengths are:

Feature article: Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is a foot condition in which a band of tissue in the sole of the foot becomes inflamed, leading to severe heel pain. The pain of plantar fasciitis can be so bad that it hurts to walk, but a few simple changes can alleviate the pain.
If heel pain is keeping you down, pamper your feet a bit until they're feeling better again. To relieve the pain of plantar fasciitis:
- If you spend many hours on your feet at work, consider replacing your shoes with better heel and arch support
- You may adjust your shoes with inserts that raise the heel and support the arch of your foot
- Use a cold pack to reduce swelling and inflammation
- Rest your feet by staying off them as much as possible for a few days
- Some good foot flexing and stretches can help stretch out the plantar fascia, and make it feel better
- Take a pain reliever like ibuprofen for temporary plantar fasciitis treatment
If the pain persists, consult a Podiatrist such as the Theresa Foot Clinic.
