Foot care commonly involves safely and gently removing corns and callus, and cutting toenails. All foot care is performed by a licensed chiropodist using sterilized medical instruments. The chiropodist checks the health of your feet with every visit. Local anesthetic is available for sensitive cases.
Foot Care Can Include:
Nail Cutting of Difficult Nails (thick, curled, etc.)
Filing Down of Thick Toenails
Corn and Callus Removal
Dry Skin Debridement
Ingrown Toenail Removal
Routine Nail Cutting
Who needs foot care?
Patients who require foot care may have difficulty cutting their own toenails like seniors, they may be diabetic, or they may have recurring corns/calluses/ingrown toenails that require attention.
It is common for patients to have a regularly scheduled foot care appointment every 6-8 weeks.
Regular foot care is an excellent way to have your foot health monitored and maintained.
