Whether you’re seeking treatment for common podiatric issues or require diabetic foot care, our dedicated team is committed to providing effective solutions.

General Podiatry

Have you ever imagined how painful and uncomfortable it can be when nails grow inward? If you’ve experienced this, general podiatry is what you need. General podiatry services encompass various comprehensive treatments aimed at addressing general foot issues. From caring for nails, corns, and warts to difficulty reaching your feet, thick nails, painful cracks, and managing skin and ingrown nails, our team ensures you receive meticulous attention to your overall foot health, making your feet feel fresher and pain-free. The solutions are tailored to your foot health needs, providing optimal foot comfort.

Children’s Feet

Various foot and lower leg concerns can affect children and teenagers. Our experienced team will conduct a thorough biomechanical assessment and offer personalized recommendations for footwear orthotics and activities that support healthy foot development. Our expert team will address a range of foot problems in children and teenagers, such as flat feet, walking difficulties, congenital foot conditions, or foot pain. Foot pain encompasses ankle sprains, minor fractures, and various skin conditions. We offer specialized pediatric podiatry services to ensure optimal foot health as children grow.

Diabetic Foot Care

Vulnerability to infections, nerve damage, and circulation issues can escalate for individuals with diabetes. Diabetes itself can manifest in various ways that affect the feet. Therefore, proper foot care is crucial and necessary. For diabetic individuals, regular visits to a podiatrist for diabetic foot care services are recommended. At Fit Foot Podiatry, we offer specialized diabetic foot care services, including wound care, skin and nail care, footwear assessment, and wax bath therapy. Our expert team ensures meticulous care and monitoring to reduce risks and enhance optimal foot health.

Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails, a common foot problem that can be incredibly bothersome and uncomfortable, are no match for the expertise of the Fit Foot Podiatry team. This condition, caused by various factors including improper nail cutting, ill-fitting footwear, and inherited foot shapes, is understood and treated with precision by our team. We offer a range of treatments to alleviate the discomfort, tailored to the severity of the issue. Our team will guide you on proper toenail cutting techniques and care, and may even remove problematic nail portions with pain-free local anesthesia if necessary. For persistent issues, our team may recommend nail surgery, providing a lasting solution.

Sport Injuries

At Fit Foot Podiatry, we understand that injuries can occur unexpectedly to anyone, especially those actively engaging in their daily activities. That’s why we offer comprehensive care for sports injuries, addressing foot injuries, and catering to both athletes and enthusiasts of physical activity. Our team conducts thorough biomechanical assessments to identify underlying issues contributing to injuries. We then provide tailored treatments, including exercise regimens, dry needling, footwear assessments, orthotic therapy, shockwave therapy, and prolotherapy, to aid in the healing process and prevent recurring injuries. Our holistic approach to injury management and prevention is designed to support your active lifestyle and facilitate optimal recovery.

Orthotics

Orthotics, essential tools in treating various foot and lower limb conditions, offer a world of relief and improved mobility. They are crucial in reducing pain and enhancing mobility, providing vital support and comfort for the feet. At Fit Foot Podiatry, we understand the transformative power of orthotics and offer various options, including custom-designed 3D-printed orthotics tailored to meet individual needs and conditions. We also provide assistance for injuries, flat feet, heel discomfort, deformities, and nerve-related issues, ensuring you can confidently and comfortably step forward.

PACT (Fungal Nails)

Do you have toenails that exhibit discoloration, rough texture, and thickening? Find a podiatrist promptly, as these symptoms indicate a fungal infection of the toenails. While this condition is common, it requires prompt attention as it affects appearance and causes discomfort. Fit Foot Podiatry offers PACT or Photodynamic Therapy services, a modern approach to treating fungal toenail infections. PACT involves using a UV-sensitive gel and UV light to precisely target and eradicate active fungal spores, providing a treatment option without pain or side effects.

Shock Wave

Shock Wave Therapy, also known as ESWT, is a treatment that utilizes high-energy acoustic shock waves to assist in the healing process of chronic soft tissue injuries. The target of this treatment is specific musculoskeletal issues, aiming to accelerate tissue repair, stimulate the formation of new blood vessels, promote cell growth, alleviate discomfort, and restore movement. Some conditions addressed with this treatment include Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis, ligament injuries, tendinopathies, delayed bone healing, and bursitis.

Diabetes Education

In our diabetes education service, our qualified diabetes educators provide the knowledge and strategies necessary to manage the condition of individuals with diabetes effectively. The diabetes education sessions encompass several components, including a comprehensive assessment of diabetes history, blood test results, and individual treatment regimens, followed by developing a personalized management plan tailored to each individual’s needs. Key topics covered in diabetes education sessions include dietary guidance, exercise recommendations, medication education, and the utilization of technology.
