FOOT HEALTH AND AGEING:

As our feet grow older, they naturally develop more problems. But painful and uncomfortable feet are not something you should have to put up with.

A lot can be done to improve comfort, relieve pain and keep you on your feet for life.

AT DUBAI PHYSIOTHERAPY AND FAMILY MEDICINE CLINIC WE HAVE INTRODUCED A ‘SENIORS CLINIC’

Keeping nails cut and under control will help keep you mobile. Unfortunately, many older people find cutting toenails problematic, due to poor eyesight or difficulties in bending down.

Your Podiatrist will be able to cut even heavily overgrown or thick nails painlessly, and provide advice on appropriate self-care.

Gait Analysis

Gait Analysis is an important part of Podiatry and involves the assessment of function. Treatment involves correction, modification and advice on correct gait. This may involve advice on footwear and sportswear for both the athlete and the everyday individual.

Orthotics

Custom Made Flip Flops and Sandals

Custom made orthotics for all Podiatry requirements, both children and adults. Tailor made insoles are made using the latest scanning and manufacturing technology. Orthotics and specific supports are also made for various foot conditions, i.e. Plantar Fasciitis, Metatarsalgia and Hallux Valgus and other conditions.
