October is almost here and everyone is thinking about pumpkin spice, halloween and fall festivals. Well, here at Advanced Podiatry we are thinking about summer! That's right, summer.
For our patients with discolored fungal nails we always recommend beginning a laser treatment around this time of year. About eight short months from now the weather will start to change and the beach days will be back. So, now is the time to treat your nails. Believe it or not, it takes about eight months for the new nails to grow in clear!
Our laser is FDA cleared for the treatment of nail fungus. It is safe, effective and painless. We can perform it in the office the day of your initial visit. If you suffer from nails fungus call us today. We are here to help! Remember, summer is just around the corner.
Overall wellness is directly linked to your level of activity. It’s well documented that those of us who exercise regularly get better quality sleep, have more energy and are more alert during the day. The average adult should be exercising a recommended 150 minutes each week. Children should be getting at least 60 minutes of exercise daily.
Keeping active is often difficult: busy schedules and demanding jobs limit our time and zap our energy, lingering injuries make it hard to get motivated. Those old aches and pains make us dread exercise for fear of continued discomfort, re-injury, or developing a new malady. It's wonder then why many of us put the most valuable asset for longevity low on the priority list.
To break the inactivity habit, start from the ground up and get your feet in order. Make sure you have the appropriate sneakers, socks, bracing, and insoles. Do yourself a favor and get your feet and gear evaluated by a podiatrist. A podiatrist will be able to better tailor your equipment and exercise needs to suit your specific athletic profile and goals. Don’t allow issues like a lingering tendinitis, a bunion deformity, or even an ingrown toenail to prevent you from getting the exercise you need.
Our doctors manage all of these problems and more on a daily basis. In addition to thorough evaluations by highly trained doctors and staff, our patients have access to the best available diagnostic and treatment methods. In office diagnostics that include live fluoroscopy, ultrasound, x-rays, and 3D foot scanning ensure fast and accurate diagnosis and treatment.
So if you are looking to get your feet and your health back on track make an appointment today for a foot evaluation at Advanced Podiatry. We will keep you active in the game of life.
