Foot care is the equivalent of cleaning your teeth in the dental domain. The skin and toenails are subjected to daily traumas and are exposed to a wet, hot environment while in our shoes. It’s possible to detect several pathologies during examination. A podiatrist will be able to evaluate, diagnose and of draw-up a plan of treatment – which then could be followed-up by a foot care nurse. We highly recommend that every patient see a podiatrist once a year. In the case of dermatological circumstances and unique disorders, more frequent care could be recommended by your podiatrist.
With 26 bones, 33 joints, over 100 muscles and 7200 nerve endings, the feet are essential to our daily lives as they support our bodies, carry our weight, ensure our balance and allow us to move around on a daily basis.
A regular inspection of the feet by qualified podiatrists and foot care specialists to detect any abnormality and provide appropriate care is therefore essential. In our Aylmer Clinic, we offer a wide range of foot care services to promote good foot health and prevent any serious diseases or disorders that may impact your daily life.
