See What Our Clients Say About Feet For Life
The home visit was excellent. Great to have proper foot care done by a nurse in my own community (Bracebridge). This saved me a long drive in winter road conditions. Hopefully more local people take up Feet for Life’s home care program.
I'm writing to let you know how happy I am with the treatment I received at Feet For Life over the past couple of weeks. My plantar fasciitis is much better. No more pain in the morning and that's thanks to the course of laser treatment that you recommended and I received at Feet For Life. I'll be heading out for a run this weekend! My appointments were booked to suit my schedule and in close succession of each other to maximize the benefit of the treatment. Everyone was professional, courteous and friendly. I won't hesitate to refer you and your clinic to friends, family and associates.
I went to Feet for Life for Diabetic foot-care. When I told them I had diabetic Neuropathy they told me it was treatable. This was a real surprise to me since several doctors had told me there was no treatment available at all! I've been living with totally numb feet and constant sharp shooting pains for 10 years! After 6 treatments in two weeks with laser and IR light; the sharp shooting pains have become almost non-existent and I have feeling back in my feet for the first time in ten years! Although not 100% I can feel the gas pedal in my car, know when my slipper has fallen off going up or down the stairs; and feel water hitting my feet in the shower. I'm continuing the treatments on a gradually decreasing frequency.
A few moths ago I had sore, swollen feet caused from a wart which over the counter remedies weren’t working. I was unable to walk, work out ect. The pain was terrible. I was searching for someone who did laser treatment. I’m so happy I made that phone call that day and Erin and her team at feet for life were able to help me return back to my activity of daily living with as little as two treatments. Their work is amazing. Friendly and professional care provided from everyone at feet for life.
