Gibbs Foot & Ankle Clinic offers surgical as well as non-surgical options for dealing with a variety of common foot problems. We have an x-ray and surgical facilities on-site, ensuring you won’t have to be referred to another doctor and you can quickly and easily get back on your feet again.
We offer treatments to deal with many common foot problems, including:
When the edges or corners of your nails grow into the skin next to the nail, ingrown toenails occur. Usually, big toes are more likely to develop an ingrown toenail. Although you can treat this at home, some cases might need medical assistance. People suffering from diabetes have a higher chance of developing this condition.
One of the main causes of ingrown toenails is the cutting of toenails incorrectly. Even footwear that puts pressure on big toes can lead to an ingrown toenail. Visit Gibbs Foot & Ankle Clinic in Edmonton for effective ingrown toenail treatment.
If you’re experiencing heel pain, you may have inflammation of the band of tissue connecting the heel bone to the toes (plantar fasciitis) or deep bruising of the fat pad of the heel (a stone bruise), both of which can generally be treated with rest and over-the-counter pain relievers. However, you may also have an abnormal bone growth on the bottom of your heel (heel spurs) or a heel fracture from a high-impact injury, both of which may require a medical procedure to treat.
Whatever the source, for heel pain treatment in Edmonton, you can count on Gibbs Foot & Ankle Clinic.
If it is arch pain you’re experiencing, plantar fasciitis is the most common cause. Treatment is the same regardless of location, though persistent plantar fasciitis in the arch can benefit greatly from the injection of a mixture of a steroid and local anesthetic. Another possible cause is fallen arches, which occur when the arches of the feet flatten out. This can generally be treated with rest, shoe inserts or physical therapy. However, surgery may also be necessary.
If you require arch pain treatment in Edmonton, come to Gibbs Foot & Ankle Clinic.
