Changes in the foot can occur, sometimes in structure, sometimes in function, or both. The podiatrist needs to perform a postoperative biomechanical examination and a new orthotic device may have to be fabricated. Orthotics are medical devices for your feet where podiatrists must take many factors into consideration before issuing. They are not suitable for everyone and should be worn using an individualized rehabilitation plan.
Orthotics can range from retail insoles to customised foot orthotics prepared by specialists. The former are available off the rack and not customised to your needs, while the latter are specialised devices used to treat foot disorders and prevent existing foot conditions from worsening.
Depending on type of sports and use, orthotics can be slim and robust for everyday training or as thin as 1mm for optimum performance with use in competition or race.
Prevention of feet wounds developing or recurring is essential for diabetic patients. Using orthotics to redistribute foot pressure aids in prevention, and can save feet from unnecessary amputation and infection.
Military and service feet endure long hours of high intensity labour. Singapore’s service personnel are susceptible to flatfoot, lower limb injuries or aggressive infections. Don’t let your feet be your downfall, serve in comfort with enhanced performance through podiatry care.
Also known as shockwave therapy, ESWT is an effective and medically proven treatment to address problems of the tendon, ligament and muscle. For many such problems, it is an alternative solution to surgery. The acoustic waves target the soft tissues, with effects such as inducing healing and improving blood flow.
Focused shockwave treatment concentrates the acoustic waves at a precise point in tissue, stimulating the body’s own natural healing process in the affected region to reduce pain, regenerate tissue, and improve circulation.
SIS utilises those same electromagnetic fields to positively influence tissue to promote healing. Therapeutic effects include pain relief, fracture healing, muscle relaxation, nerve stimulation and joint mobilisation.
This treatment causes healing beneath the skin's surface using very high frequency sound waves. The sound waves induce increased local metabolism, circulation, extensibility of connective tissue and tissue regeneration.
Human cells do not have a cell wall, but fungal cells do. Photodynamic gel is applied to the foot, and PACT (Photodynamic Anti-Microbial and Anti-Mycotic Therapy) light is introduced. A local chemical effect is produced, attacking the cell wall of the fungus. Growth of the fungus is stopped and this results in the destruction of the fungus.
Stability of bones and muscles during daily and athletic activity is important. The podiatrist will use the tape to physically support and keep in place the muscles and bones at a certain position.
Podiatrists are clinicians who specialize in lower limb disorders, specifically the foot and ankle. They focus primarily on conditions such as flat feet, common foot pain, walking abnormalities, skin and nail conditions as well as diabetic foot problems.
As front line specialists, Podiatrists adopt non-invasive treatment methods and preventative measures to avoid the need for surgery.
