You’ve heard of a pain clinic, a medical clinic, etc. – but what is a foot clinic? A foot clinic is a place where a chiropodist (also known as a podiatrist) treats disorders of the foot or ankle. At Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic not only is our chiropodist, Tony Abbott, a medical expert – he is also a runner and athlete himself. He is passionate about preventative care as well as care for injuries and proper footwear.
One way a foot clinic can help you to take excellent care of your feet is by specializing in the design and offering of custom orthotics for your feet. These orthotics can help alleviate various types of pain and inflammation that may be occurring with your daily activities and exercises, but they can also help with the proper alignment of your foot to get the best gait and support out of your orthotics for your many activities and exercises throughout the day.
At our foot clinic, we can help with shin splints, ingrown toenails, fractures, tendonitis, bursitis, metatarsalgia (bet you can’t say that one 10 times fast!) and many other foot and ankle problems. We can help with foot care for those with poor circulation or illness like diabetes because people with diabetes mellitus or circulatory diseases are 20 times more likely to have foot problems than the general public. We offer physiotherapy, manual therapy, electric stimulation, laser therapy, and all the latest treatment options and modalities we can find to give you the best and most up-to-date care options possible.
