WHAT IS PODOLOGY?
Podiatry is a system of diagnosis and treatment of structural and mechanical problems of the feet and lower extremities, in order to determine the causes of minor diseases. Podiatry can help keep feet active and pain-free, improve mobility, and your overall health and well-being.
WHAT DOES PODOLOGICAL TREATMENT IMPLY?
The professional staff of our center will warmly welcome you and provide all information about your medical and therapeutic history.
Our podiatrists are bound by a strict code of ethics and any details you disclose will be completely protected. The podiatrist will thoroughly examine both feet and determine the diagnosis. We will then discuss the options available to you and treat your feet with advice on how to care for them, so that your feet will be healthy in the future.
An example is a dry foot treatment that includes cutting and filling nails, removing corns or calluses, mechanical exfoliation and application of luxurious creams. Podiatry, where necessary, also involves biomechanics and minor surgery, as well as the use of keratolytics (agents to remove dry skin, calluses and dry eyes).
WHO NEEDS PODOLOGICAL TREATMENT?
Podiatry is useful in the treatment of the following conditions:
• Corny eyes
• Wart on feet
• Ingrown toenails
• Ingrown toenails
• Athlete’s foot
• Bunions (metatarsus varus or Hallux valgus)
• Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
• Plantar fascitis (painful inflammation of the plantar fascia of the foot)
• Heel pain
HOW MANY PODIATRIC SESSIONS ARE NECESSARY FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?
Our podiatrists will adapt the treatment to your individual needs, because the number of sessions varies from person to person. If necessary, we can continue the therapy for a longer period of time, and especially when it comes to calluses, warts and corns, provide quality care and advice on the best way to care for your feet at home. We will answer all your questions and suggest foot care products, how to properly take care of your nails and choose appropriate footwear. We recommend seeing a podiatrist at least 4 times a year for optimal foot health.
