What can the pedicurist do for you?
Feet require attention. But sometimes you cannot give it (for a while). For example, due to illness, psychological complaints, age, overweight, reduced vision or because you have difficulty moving. Then the (medical) pedicurist is there for you.
There are many foot problems with which you do not have to go straight to the general practitioner and with which you can turn perfectly well to the pedicurist. You do not need a referral from the general practitioner to visit the pedicurist. You can go to the pedicurist for cutting nails but of course also for the following foot problems:
- ingrown toenails
- dry feet
- excessive calluses
- skin fungi and nail fungi
- corns, foot warts and cracks
Especially with diabetes, rheumatism, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, dementia, spasticity, cancer, age, pregnancy, overweight and heavy strain of the feet, foot care deserves extra attention. Specific complaints of the legs, feet, nails or skin can then arise. But foot problems can also arise due to side effects of medication use or if your profession demands a great deal of your feet. The (medical) pedicurist knows the points where vulnerable feet need extra care.
Which pedicurist suits you?
