What is Podiatry?
Podiatry is the branch of medicine that deals with the care of the human foot; especially the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of foot disorders. A podiatrist has a doctorate in podiatric medicine (DPM) and is a registered member of the Quebec Order of Podiatrists.
We provide a variety of podiatry treatment services from our West Island location including:
- Treatment of Foot Conditions – Flat Feet, High-Arch Feet, Plantar Fasciitis, Tendinitis, Hammertoes, and Bunions.
- Orthotics – Upon completion of a thorough examination to determine a diagnosis, the podiatrist will indicate whether orthotics are right for you. Orthotics may help to minimise the suffering associated with plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, hallux valgus (bunions), flat feet, high-arch feet, and all foot, leg, hip and back fatigue.
For further information call 514.900.3049 or book your appointment online today – we’re here to help!
