Foot care is a daily practice of washing, moisturizing, filing and clipping nails. Most of us are fully capable of reaching our feet to perform independent foot care, but a lot of Americans cannot reach their feet for a variety of reasons. Some of those reasons might be obesity, joint stiffness, altered mental status, visual impairment, serious medical condition or possibly joint injury. I have seen many extensive foot infection in my practice that started from toe nail clipping, nail and dry skin picking and filing. Regular foot care prevents foot infections that can lead to amputation. We do not recommend diabetics go to salon for foot care due to infection risks.
Our foot care program was started to provide Oklahomans an opportunity to low cost professional foot care. Patients that need professional foot care are patients at risk of infection, neuropathy, poor circulation, chronic swelling, chronic pain, obesity and poor mobility. Professional foot care includes: assessment of tissue and nail color, circulation, edema, pain and odor that can prevent serious complications. Our team will trim and files nails and calluses, make shoe recommendations and / or modifications and provide a full thorough inspection. Treatment is typically gentle and pain free and completed in one visit.
The cost is $40.00 per treatment. In some situations insurance may cover this expense, but our office manager is experienced and will call for eligibility.
