Your feet don’t just take you from place to place, they help you balance, absorb shock and support your body.

Often, your feet can be the reason for other pains such as ankle, knee, hip and lower back pain. Your foot type, shoe wear, activity and gait are also factors that come into play with foot care and health.

Excessive pressures on the foot can cause painful conditions such as callus, corns and pressure ulcers. Many of these problems can be prevented through nail and skin care by a foot specialist, daily health monitoring, foot checks and proper shoe selection.

Our staff of foot care specialists includes certified pedorthists, occupational therapists and chiropodists. We provide excellent service, quality products and expertise in the treatment of foot problems.

  • Nail care
  • Corn and callus removal
