A biomechanical and postural evaluation helps to:
Various types of minor surgery can be performed. The most frequent are recurrent ingrown toenails, foreign objects (broken glass to be removed, splinter, hair, metal, etc.) and underfoot hardened horns now unbearable.
Since interventions are carried out under local anesthesia, the patient feels little or no pain at all. The remission is often very fast and permanent.
It is an innovative measure tool to view, evaluate, analyse and better understand postural problems. The system works by imaging, capturing the light reflection on human body and by highlighting variations caused by different pathologies often related to a misalignement of the feet. Postural imaging enables to objectively evalu-ate the posture condition and determine its development during podiatric treatment.Innovation
The laser treatment offer at the clinic treat inflammation.
The laser system is used in order to relieve pain acting directly on inflammation. It allows proliferation of blood vessels which stimulates the immune system and block pain signals, in addition to accelerate tissue regeneration. It can handle cases of ; plantar fascitis, Morton’s neuroma, sprain, plantar warts, capsulitis and post-surgery.Innovation
A plantar orthotic is a small equipment designed and custom-made manufactured. Placed underfoot, it is intended to correct or compensate an imbalance of the feet or of the pos-ture.
The orthotics exclusively prescribed at the clinic are made in Quebec. Dynamic and versatile, they fit in all types of shoes due to their small size. Prescribed to meet individual needs, they help to ease and even eliminate postural problems while finding a well-being.
A biomechanical evaluation is made in order to prevent or heal an injury and improve athletic performance by optimizing lower limb biomechanics.
An overview of the various athletic therapies performed at the clinic :
Children of all ages are welcome at the clinic. Podiatrists have the expertise to evaluate and detect any musculoskeletal anomalies as early of 2 weeks.
It is recommended to consult promptly if your child :
Some of the problems may be corrected on a permanent way when they are detected and trea-ted at a young age.
Our clinic has all the required facilities for digital radiography. This technology enables an immediate screen display of the foot and ankle bones.
It is simple and safer than a conventional radiography, by reducing four (4) times the exposure to X-rays. Moreover, it allows us to provide our patients a digital copy (CD-ROM) of the X-rays or when necessary, to ensure follow-up with their doctor.Innovation
Our clinic offers a complete range of podiatric care, basic (nail trimming and debridement) and skin condition treatment. These may require a pharmaceutical treatment, surgical, by injection or laser in order to ease or eliminate symptoms.
The clinic has a technology to eliminate plantar warts : the microwave treatment. This technique activates the immune system and acts on the lesion.
As it causes little or no side effects, patients can subsequently continue their daily activities without any problems.
It is important to know that the microwave treatment is safe for everyone.
The use of podiatry ultrasound allows you to quickly visualize the inflammation in order to precisely identify the area to be treated. Composed of 30 muscles, 21 joints and 107 ligaments, the foot is known for being a very complex structure. A correct diagnosis is essential to offer an appropriate treatment.
In that sense, the ultrasound is a major asset in the evaluation of the soft tissues. It is therefore an important ally for the diagnosis and also contributes to improve the treatments such as cortisone injections. With the ultrasound, we can target a specific point and inject the medication in real time.
By definition, the excision of soft tissue designates all surgical procedures aimed at withdrawing a harmful element from the foot, such as a foreign body, a tumor or any kind of lesions. After the excision, the soft tissue mass can be sent to pathology to be analyzed or to confirm a diagnosis. This procedure is considered a minor surgery of the foot. Under local anesthesia, this type of surgery can be executed by a qualified podiatrist directly at our clinic.
