If you have foot pain, your toenails are thick or discolored, your feet are cracked or peeling, or warts are growing on them, you might need a podiatrist. Podiatry is a medical science devoted to treating injuries that affect your feet and lower legs.
Some usual problems that require these professionals are ingrown or broken fingernails and cracks on feet skin. But the benefits of podiatry go beyond that. A podiatrist can treat or prevent several injuries or diseases. Here go some examples:
If you have diabetes, you need constant care with your feet, and visit a podiatrist periodically is very important. This condition can cause damage to the nerves of the feet and legs, and if there’s anything wrong, you won’t feel pain. A podiatrist can detect the problem and treat it, avoiding amputation.
Take good care of your feet by making an appointment with a podiatrist at BCW. We got the best professionals to examine and identify whatever problem you might have – and you may don’t even know it.
The cost of therapy depends on the nature of your injury, the results of our initial evaluation, and what you want to accomplish. We can give you an estimate of the cost and length of treatment after you have come in for your initial evaluation.
Yes, probably. A large number of insurance plans cover physical therapy treatment. Check with your insurance plan administrator or call our clinic to find out if physical therapy is covered by your insurance.
How quickly you recover depends on the extent of damaged tissue, how long you have had the injury, your nutritional habits, your emotional state, the state of your immune and endocrine systems, your genetic predisposition and other factors. We will review these factors with you when you come in for your evaluation. Your body’s response to exercises and manual techniques will also help us to estimate how long it could take for you to regain function.
With connective tissue injury, pain starts because your tissue is structurally stressed or inflamed. We can help you reduce inflammation by prescribing circulation exercises to flush inflammatory substances out of the injured area. This in itself will diminish your pain. Then, by rebuilding the tissues and eliminating poor joint biomechanics, we can further diminish your pain or even eliminate it.
Wear loose, comfortable clothing. If you have a low back or knee injury, bring a pair of shorts or sweatpants.
