For everyday life

Any questions?

Throughout our lives our feet will bear a great weight. At each step we take, our foot supports between 2 and 4 times the weight of our body. It is estimated that a normal person (not an elite athlete) can take the same amount of steps that would circle the world 4 times in the course of his life.

Our feet are the only thing that we use to support ourselves on the ground and how we do it will influence the rest of the osteoarticular and muscular system. Sometimes discomfort or injuries that appear in remote areas of the foot may be caused by the shape of our feet or our by the way we step (e.g. back pains, muscle overload, etc).

Foot care is indicated at all ages, but both in our childhood (for the possibility of preventive treatments) as well as when we are old (due to degradation and chronic diseases) is particularly important.

Some of the most frequently treated pathologies are:

■       plantar fascitis

■       heel spur                                                       

■       metatarsals

■       instability

■       knee pathology

■       muscle overload(calf, lumbar, hamstrings)

■       sprains

■       Morton’s neuroma

■       callosities

■       papiloma

■       onychomycosis, providing laser treatment for nail fungus

- Treatment of ingrown nails (where necessary making the final nail treatment by mobile surgery)

We have 2 ways of treating these pathologies:

- Through our bio-mechanical department performing bio-mechanical studies and using Podoactiva’s Elite Sport or Comfort Line insoles. These treatments can even be worn with Podoactiva Elite Woman heel shoes or incorporate them into a custom made one.

- Through the Chiropody Department, where we have the latest equipment for foot care and maintenance.
