Podiatrists offer general foot maintenance to deal with recurring conditions such as corns, calluses, nail conditions and overuse syndromes. Drawing upon all the treatment methods available, your podiatrist will also advise you regarding footwear and deflective padding techniques. These approaches are all designed to reduce your reliance on the podiatrist.
Emphasis is placed on the pain-free management of conditions in a way that puts the power into your hands by educating you to better manage your recurring problem and by encouraging resolution of the condition by identifying its causes such as clawed, hammer toes and bunions.
If necessary a management plan will be implemented in order to fix a recurring problem such as ingrown toenails, corns or calluses.
