Flat feet/cavus feet

A complete biomechanical exam and gait analyse with your podiatrist will determine your foot type. If you have pain, there are various treatments like custom foot orthotics.

•Fallen arches or high arches ;
•Ankles rolling inwards or outwards.

Flat feet/cavus feet

Condition :

Neuroma

When there is a compression of a nerve between two bones in the foot, a neuroma can occur. In reaction to this repeated friction when walking, the nerve gets thicker and sends pain signals. Wearing inadequate shoes can lead to this problem over time. Your podiatrist will give you advice on a proper footwear for your condition. There are also treatments to relieve pain such as a cortisone injection, ultrasound therapy and cushioned shoe pads. Custom foot orthotics are indicated when the nerve compression is caused by the malalignment of the feet. Severe cases can require surgery.

•Burning or electrical shock sensation in the toes;
•Feeling of having a fold in your sock or a bump inside your shoe.

Neuroma

Condition :

Plantar fasciitis

The plantar fascia, a structure extending from the heel to the toes, acts as a support to the arch of the foot. It is extremely sollicitated during the walk, therefore often injured. Many factors can lead to a plantar fasciitis like inadequate footwear or a biomecanical malalignment of your feet. Your podiatrist can identify the cause and propose different treatments such as therapeutic bandages, ultrasound therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, a cortisone injection and foot orthotics.

•Pain in the heel area or in the arch ;
•Worst when getting up in the morning or after a long sitting time.

Plantar fasciitis

Condition :

Sprain and fracture

Foot and ankle sprains can happen while practicing a sport, but also while walking on an uneven surface for example. A chronic ankle instability can lead to repeated injuries if left untreated. Your podiatrist will help you treat the problem to get back on your feet as soon as possible. Also, advice on proper footwear, strenghtening and proprioception exercises will be the key to a full recovery. Finally, if a fracture is suspected, your podiatrist will prescribe X-rays and analyse them.

Condition :

Corns and calluses

Corns are located on pressure points under the feet or between the toes. Painful or not, if left untreated, they can become larger , thicker and deeper. Calluses are areas of your feet where the skin gets thicker because of a repeated friction or plantar pression. The podiatrist will debride corns and calluses with sterile instruments and give you some advice on different creams to apply at home.
