The foot is the base of support of the musculoskeletal system. It connects the organism with the surrounding environment and has the ability to maintain balance and allow ambulation, being a fundamental pillar in the activities of daily life.
Podiatry is the science that encompasses the study and treatment of the different diseases and alterations that affect the foot, through the techniques of their profession; as well as prevention in the appearance of these conditions.
At the Clínica Estética Contur we try to improve the quality of life of our patients, relieving pain and responding to the pathology that causes it. For this we offer a series of services and podiatric treatments:
Medical foot care
This is the area of podiatry that encompasses a set of manual techniques aimed at treating skin and toenail conditions:
- Cutting and filing of nails.
- Removal of hardness and calluses.
- Silicone orthosis for finger deformities.
- Treatment of fungi and infections in nails and skin.
- Treatment of nail changes.
- Treatment of hyperhidrosis in the foot.
- Treatment of plantar warts (papillomas).
Biomechanical study of gait
The study of gait consists of the global exploration in static and dynamic, the observation of limitations, imbalances or anomalous behaviors that can cause some pathology.
Customized template creation depending on the needs of each patient. The objective is to improve the function of the foot by promoting the harmony of the movements of the musculoskeletal system.
After the existence of pathologies that do not respond to conservative treatment, small surgical interventions can be used under local anesthesia and on an outpatient basis, so that the patient can return home the same day. The most common problems that can be solved with the help of surgery are the following:
- Onicocriptosis (ingrown toenail)
- Hallux Valgus (Bunions)
- Claw / hammer fingers
- Morton’s neuroma
- Calluses and Helomas
- Tumors or Cysts in the foot
