Your Chiropodist can properly assess and treat wounds. There are some steps you can take to help avoid wounds altogether.
- Look for signs of redness or blisters on your feet and report it to us. If you can't see the bottom of your feet try using a mirror.
- If you are unable to reach your toes, do not have feeling in your feet or have vision problems, have our Chiropodist trim your toenails for you.
When you visit our clinic with a wound, our Chiropodist will complete a full assessment of both feet including your wound. From these observations, a treatment plan will be developed based on your specific needs. You will then be monitored as needed to ensure you are progressing well and that no infection has begun. If an infection should occur, your Chiropodist may prescribe antibiotics or other treatments to get you on the road to recovery.
