Feet for Life Foot Clinic
Who Can Benefit From Nursing Foot & Lower Limb Care?
People from all walks of life can benefit, we all depend on our feet to keep us mobile. People who spend long hours on their feet could benefit from a relaxing foot care treatment and suggestions for improved foot health and comfort. Ongoing nursing foot care maintenance is important for those with poor eyesight, diabetes, and diseases such as poor circulation, stroke, dementia, arthritis, joint problems, foot pain or other conditions that prevent people from being able to care safely for their own feet.
Consultation and Assessment
Professional foot care begins with a thorough nursing assessment of the client’s feet and lower limbs that includes a health questionnaire, biomechanical exam, and visual inspection. Our Podortho® Nurses are trained in Advanced Diabetic Foot Care and wound care; we can care for specific foot care problems such as corns, calluses, ingrown toenails, thickened and hard to cut nails, cracked heels, and fungal nails. After assessing your feet, we will design a personalized foot care program specific to your needs. We can also offer suggestions for keeping your feet more comfortable between visits.
Be kind to your feet. Years of wear and tear can be hard on them. So can disease, bad circulation, poorly trimmed toenails, and wearing shoes that don’t fit. Foot problems are sometimes the first sign of more serious medical conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, and nerve or circulatory disorders. Regular maintenance foot care treatments can prevent serious complications. Depending on your foot condition, we see patients anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks apart.
