When you seek treatment for foot problems, it may be the first time you learn about what complex structures they are, with their 26 bones and 33 joints each, numerous tendons and ligaments, and thousands of sweat glands. Whether it is an overuse injury from running or pain from hours standing at your job, you need someone who really understands feet to pinpoint your problem and find a remedy for it. You need Chiropodist Tony Abbott and the staff at Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic in Collingwood, ON.
We Help Heal Injuries
Acute injuries happen suddenly: something falls on your foot at work, for example, or you trip and fall while playing soccer and break a bone or sprain an ankle. An overuse injury happens gradually over time. You may develop foot pain from standing on the job for hours, or running for miles and miles. When you repeat the same motions over and over again, the muscles, tendons, and ligaments involved experience wear and tear and start to degrade.
No matter the cause of your foot problems, we can help. From treatment for sports injuries to custom orthotics to address the heel pain of plantar fasciitis, we will find ways to eliminate your discomfort and allow you to function well again.
We Treat Symptoms of Chronic Diseases
Arthritis is often first felt in your feet. This disease attacks the cartilage in your joints and causes pain, swelling and inflammation. It can occur from wear and tear over time, from a previous injury, or from rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disease. We can treat arthritis symptoms conservatively to help relieve your pain, keep your joints healthy and flexible, and keep you active.
We also provide excellent care for the diabetic foot. Poor circulation, neuropathy, and ulcers are common risks when you have this disease, and they often show up in your feet first. They can cause loss of sensation, slow healing, and even end up requiring amputation. We use things like supportive shoes, orthotics, and proper wound care to head off these serious problems.
We Sweat the Small Stuff, Too
You could have what many consider small foot problems: blisters, corns and calluses, and athlete’s foot. The thing is, these can grow into a bigger issue if you don’t take care of them properly early on. Let us help with care for your ingrown toenail, or treatment of any rashes or lesions on your feet.
