Here at Tender Foot Care, we provide a unique set of services; ones that are not necessarily available at other podiatry practices. These services are valuable to promoting, restoring, and maintaining the wellness of your feet, both now and as you age.
Our podiatrist in Forest Hills performs circulation tests, which simple means finding out if blood is making its way through your feet in an optimal manner, which is crucial. For various reasons, particularly if you have peripheral artery disease (PAD), or diabetic, suffer from high cholesterol or high blood pressure, or you are either now or were a smoker, your circulation can become reduced to your feet. For those who are diabetic, our podiatrist in Forest Hills also offers a nerve test. Neuropathy, nerve damage, is common with diabetes, and if not addressed can result in both foot and leg pain, foot ulcerations, loss of sensation, infections, and amputations. It is vital to be checked, and we use advanced methods for doing so. Shockwave therapy is a state-of-the-art treatment that is typically put into use for addressing heel pain, but can also be used for other foot problems. It's usually not uncomfortable at all, is non-invasive, and can be done right here at our office in about 15 minutes or less, with outstanding results. You can also take advantage of laser care for toenail fungus. And speaking of toenails, we are very excited to make the Keryflex system of toenail restoration available. It is ideal for dealing with deformed nails, those that are brittle or splitting, or have become misshapen due to injury.
It's clear that our podiatrist in Forest Hills features cutting edge solutions, but the personal touch is also very important to us, and we value our patients. Reach out to us now to arrange an appointment.
