Foot Care:

Your feet endure a lot of pressure everyday making them more vulnerable to injury and various problems. Diabetics in particular are in danger of more complications. Foot care management in the elderly can be an increasingly difficult task. Decreased vision, decreased strength in the hands, arthritis and changes in the skin of the feet are issues that present a challenge as one ages. Hammer toes, bunions, fungal infections of the nails, ingrown toe nails are all conditions that have to be kept in check. Therefore a foot assessment by a qualified foot care nurse can be a major step in maintaining good health. For more information on foot care and what a foot care treatment entails please contact our foot care nurse.

Compression Fitting:

Compression hose can benefit various conditions such as:

· Tired, aching legs from long periods of sitting or standing
· The build up of fluid in the lower ankle and leg

We provide custom fittings for compression socks by request.

Such problems can occur at any age in both men and women. Certain factors increase the risk of venous problems including injury, heredity, pregnancy, health conditions and lifestyle. Compression hose come in various levels of compression as well as various styles and colours for both men and women.

Please contact your physician for advice on whether compression hose would be suitable for you. Some levels of compression require a written prescription from your physician.
