Collingwood’s Foot Care Expert Is Here for You
Your feet are the foundation of your life. You stand, walk, run, dance, jump, and kick with them, and chances are at some time in your life, they will respond by saying, “Ouch!” Foot pain is nothing new, but it is not normal. If your feet hurt, something is not right. You can ignore the discomfort and hope it goes away, or you can give your feet the loving care they need by calling Abbott Foot & Ankle Clinic in Collingwood, ON at (705) 444-9929 and scheduling an appointment with the experts.
Whether you come to us with heel pain, a sports injury, diabetic feet, or toenail fungus, our friendly staff is dedicated to getting your feet back in great shape so they are ready for your busy life. As a runner himself, Chiropodist Tony Abbott can give you training and running tips, as well as address any injuries that you may have incurred.
Solving Problems from Sore Heels to Fungal Nails
Every solution begins with the correct diagnosis. We take the time to listen to your concerns, gather your medical history, and do a careful examination of your feet and legs to see what is going on. Once we determine the underlying cause of your foot pain, we can help you decide on the best and quickest way to get you the relief you need.
We have the latest treatments, including laser therapy for heel pain or toenail fungus and magnetic bio-stimulation to improve cell function and healing. We also use tried-and-true methods, such as physiotherapy. Imagine how good your feet will feel after manual foot therapy to address those muscle knots and trigger points.
Custom Orthotics for a Stable Foundation
One of our specialties is designing foot supports that will reduce your pain and improve the bio-mechanics of your stride, so you can enjoy your favourite sport or other activities without discomfort. Chiropodist Tony Abbott will do a thorough examination of your feet and ankles and perform a gait analysis to see how your feet move as you walk. If he believes your problems can be addressed with supports, we will use a 3D laser scanner to get an accurate picture of where your bones move out of alignment when you walk and run. From these images, we can determine exactly what parts of your foot need more support or extra cushioning, so the foot and leg bones stay lined up as they should and don’t pull unevenly on your ligaments and tendons.
Our made-for-you orthotics will help correct issues such as flat foot or high arch pain; plantar fasciitis, neuromas or metatarsalgia; shin splints; knee pain; and even hip and lower back pain. Your feet are the basis for your entire skeletal structure, so getting them stabilized can help with problems all the way up your body.
Expert Care for Diabetic Feet
Because your foundation is so crucial to a normal, active lifestyle, Chiropodist Tony Abbott specializes in taking care of them and treating any complications that arise from diabetes. You need to do your part, too, by keeping your feet clean and dry, doing daily foot checks, and always wearing protection for your feet. However, if poor circulation or nerve damage—common complications of this disease—cause problems in your feet, be assured that we can help you keep them from becoming serious issues with regular visits. We perform wound care, prescribe orthoses for foot ulcers, and treat the health and function of your nervous and circulatory systems, so your feet stay as healthy as possible.
