Professional Podiatry Services in Our Clinic & In Your Home
In addition to providing primary health care, Trinity Medical & Housecall Doctors, PC offers podiatry services at our walk-in clinic and in your home. Our services include comprehensive examination, specialized procedures and treatments, and surgical debridement. We can also help diabetic patients obtain orthopedic shoes and other durable medical equipment (DME).
One of the most frequent reasons adults go to a podiatrist is to trim difficult-to-cut, thick, yellow, or painful toenails. We also remove painful calluses.
In addition, our podiatry services include treatment for ingrown toenails, heel pain, and diabetic foot care. Ingrown toenails most frequently occur in the big toe. If not treated, they can become infected and eventually cause an abscess. Any kind of infection in the foot is especially concerning for people with diabetes and poor circulation. That’s why it’s important to treat an ingrown toenail as soon as possible.
Heel pain can occur for a number of reasons: heel spur (abnormal bone growth), plantar fasciitis, bursitis, Achilles tendonitis, or even just wearing shoes that don’t fit right. Whatever the reason, our podiatrist will examine your heel and assess your pain to make an accurate diagnosis and recommend treatment.
For those with diabetes, taking care of your feet is critical to your health. Diabetes-related foot problems such as or sores, ulcers, or infections are most often caused by nerve damage and poor blood circulation. Neuropathy, or nerve damage, in the feet can prevent you from feeling pain and noticing open sores. If not caught early, a small sore can quickly become infected and turn into a non-healing wound. Our podiatrists perform routine foot exams for our diabetic patients to prevent ulcers while also treating foot infections and wounds.
