Our podologists are involved in both research and nursing work. They also give well-founded advice on possible follow-up treatments and on the choice of shoe.
In addition, our podologists also treat patients by means of orthonyxia, orthoplasty, felt therapy, podological examinations and foot care treatments and diabetic foot treatments.
This includes a biomechanical examination and a gait analysis. It is studied in detail how the patient walks, how mobile the foot and ankle are, and whether the patient is restricted in any kind of movement. The next steps are determined based on this analysis: insoles, silicone orthotic inlays, felt therapy, referral to a specialist, GP or physiotherapist, etc.
podological foot care
The podologist listens to the problems experienced by the patient and examines the foot. All nails are cut straight to prevent ingrowing toe nails. The nail is made smooth with a file and cuticles are cleaned. All the callus is debrided using a blade. Oestrogen may also be applied. Everything is then made extra soft with a file. The treatment is completed with the application of a good foot cream.
diabetic foot treatment
Because wounds and other foot problems can be very complex for diabetics, the treatment calls for a specialised approach. A regular visit to a recognised podologist is recommended. If there is an increased risk of foot problems, the patient’s healthcare insurer will make a financial contribution.
