The weather has been beautiful in Oakville, Ontario. It is the time of year when shoes change over. People notice their bare feet more and maybe some neglect.
This is an excellent time of year to see your Chiropodist for a “foot check up” where they can look at your feet, check the sensation of your feet, your skin and your nails.
Your Chiropodist (foot care specialist will help you with things like:
- Thick toenails
- Ingrown toenails
- Calluses (think from skates and cleats etc)
- Fungal toenails (thick / discoloured)
- Athletes foot
- Cracked heels
At a first visit, your Chiropodist will assess your feet and discuss your concerns. They will educate you and speak with you about treatment options. Many of these issues may require a course of treatment and more than one follow-up. You Chiropodist will go through all of these things with you at your first foot assessment / treatment.
Most private insurance companies cover Chiropody or Podiatric Foot Care.
