It is no secret that foot care isn’t ‘sexy’… and as a result the majority of people do not take care of this incredibly precious body part!
Our feet are the body’s support system and yet most people do not take care of them: Up to one in three people have foot problems, which when left untreated can lead to serious conditions including arthritis, infection, chronic pain, joint damage, and even amputation. If you suffer from corns, calluses, warts, nail and skin disorders, diabetes, or foot, ankle, knee or back pain…a visit to Feet First Clinic for an assessment is your first step.
The majority of foot problems are the result of ill-fitting footwear, so getting people in proper shoes is a pillar of our practice. We prevent and treat foot problems with a combination of state-of-the-art biomechanical analysis, top of the line orthopaedic sneakers and shoes, and custom orthotics.
Footcare….great for your feet…good for the sole! We believe in providing quality, compassionate services that support a healthy, active lifestyle. Our chiropodists specialize in prevention and management of acute and chronic foot disorders that affect foot and lower limb function.
All of the chiropodists at Feet First Clinic are graduates of The Michener Institute. They are not medical doctors. It is the only English-speaking Chiropody program in Canada, and has a working Chiropody Clinic on campus for students to treat patients under the supervision of licensed Chiropodists who are also Michener Faculty.
The Graduate Advanced Diploma of Health Sciences (Chiropody) is a three-year, 7 semesters, full time program. Graduates from Michener’s Chiropody program earn a Graduate Advanced Diploma of Health Sciences (Chiropody).
Chiropody is a branch of medical science that involves the assessment and management of foot and lower limb disorders: this includes the management of a wide variety of disorders and injuries. Foot deformities, infections and injuries not only limit your mobility, but can detrimentally affect your health and quality of life.
Chiropodists make a real difference in patients’ lives by keeping you mobile and pain free, which dramatically improves your quality of life. Feet First Clinic makes it easy for you to chose a male or female chiropodist to ensure you are comfortable talking about your foot health.
The role of the Chiropodist is to maintain and improve patient mobility, to alleviate foot pain and provide health education thereby improving one’s quality of life. A Feet First Clinic Chiropodist can provide care to a diverse range of patients and specializes in the following areas:
- Diabetic Foot Care
- Sport Injuries
- Foot Warts
- Ingrown toenails
- Toenail Fungus
- Biomechanical Assessment and Gait Analysis
- Wound Care
Effective practice requires a high degree of manual dexterity, diagnostic skills, a caring and professional attitude and effective communication skills. The team at Feet First Clinic want your experience to be one that puts your best foot forward.
While our Chiropodists are skilled in assessing your needs and of managing both chronic and acute conditions affecting foot and lower limb function, at Feet First Clinic the support staff will be there to answer any questions you may have and put your mind at ease throughout your assessment and potential treatment.
