Ingrown toenails can become inflamed, infected and very painful. Timely and appropriate treatment is important, to avoid them getting worse
Foot orthotics are used to improve the function of the feet; thereby treating conditions such as those that stem from faulty foot mechanics. Foot specialists/chiropodists often use these devices in their treatment plan.
General care involves the assessment and treatment of feet and the maintenance and promotion of healthy feet through ongoing preventative care.
