Holistic Foot Clinic
Life is better when your feet don't hurt!
Welcome to your holistic foot clinic!
As a family practitioner I have come to treat many, many different ailments over the years. Often overlooked and undermined are our feet and legs though. Most of the time our feet will keep up with our demanding lifestyle, but if problems do arise, then they often become problematic, they can be stubborn to treatment interventions, are very painful and can even leave us feeling debilitated. But rest assured there are still options to explore!
Whether you suffer from an ankle sprain, chronic arthritis in your feet, ankles or knee, injured ligaments, Achilles tendonitis, Morton's neuroma, neuropathic pain, restless legs syndrome, gout, bunions, edema, plantar fasciitis, heel spur, diabetic foot syndrome, or just want to explore some maintenance treatments to keep your feet and leg feel fine, then I would love to welcome you to AcuComfort's holistic foot clinic!
Treatments that have shown to be very useful for foot health are:
- needle-free cold-laser acupuncture (class 3b low level laser)
- manual therapy such as tuina massage, foot reflexology, myofascial relief
- herbal foot soaks and natural clay wraps and poultices, aroma-therapy
- acu-taping (kinesio-taping)
- foot yoga and exercises, health coaching
While the feet can be the primary cause of your problem, they can also be secondary as often times foot problems arise due to other conditions. Think gout, diabetes, heart disease, venous insufficiency, etc. to name just a few. As a holistic practitioner I will help you to address the root and help your feet feel better at the same time.
Your feet can also be responsible for aches and pains in other areas of your body, for example they may lead to knee, hip or back pain. Here as well I want to point out the importance of assessing and addressing your condition holistically.
