What Is Medical Foot Care?

What is Medical Nursing Foot Care?   Medical Foot Care looks at the overall health of the feet and can be basic or advanced depending on individual needs.  It is provided in a sterile, professional environment. All equipment is fully sterilized and unique to each individual. Medical foot care is a dry procedure (meaning there is no foot soak like the ones associated with many spa pedicures).   Medical foot care is performed by trained and qualified foot care nurses.  They can assess and treat skin, nail and foot conditions (calluses, corns, ingrown toenails, yellow nails and everything in between) and can advise you on preventative treatment.   A foot care nurse is a Registered Nurse or a Licenced Practical Nurse who has taken specialized training in foot care. They work along with a team of health care professionals such as family doctors, podiatrists, physiotherapists, and others to keep a person mobile and decrease the risk of developing foot complications. Nurses also assess feet for circulation, sensation and edema / swelling.   The expense of foot care can be tax deductible as long as the Nurse’s license and registration are on the receipt. Many health insurance plans also cover nursing foot care.   Appointments are 30 minutes each and the cost is $40.   Everyone can benefit from foot care, particularly people with conditions such as diabetes, decreased or impaired mobility, decreased circulation and/or visual impairments.   To book an appointment with Kimberly Sheppard, LPN and Certified Foot Care Nurse, call us at 634-4882.

Trigger Point Dry Needling

Following injuries or other degenerative processes, many patients suffer from muscular tightness and spasm. This often leads to compression and irritation of the nerves exciting the spine. When these nerves are irritated they cause a protective spasm of all the muscles to which they are connected. This natural response from the body trying to protect itself results in “referred pain.” This referred pain can lead to secondary dysfunction such as carpal tunnel, tendonitis, osteoarthritis, decreased mobility, chronic pain and a range of other disorders. Dry needling is a highly effective treatment, unequaled in identifying and eliminating these “referred” or hidden sources of pain and dysfunction. The treatment involves identifying the source of the pain and advancing a small filament needle into the related muscles, eliciting a small twitch response and thereby relaxing the muscle. The identification and stimulation of these trigger points can “reboot” the muscle, both to alleviate the original problem area as well as the secondary pain. The therapists at Veitch Physiotherapy and Wellness who perform Trigger Point Dry Needling have undergone extensive training with Kinetacore™, an internationally recognized body for manual therapy and Dry Needling certification training. They are the only Physiotherapists in Corner Brook who have received such training. How can I book an appointment?
