Westlock Podiatrist & Foot Clinic

Health professionals here at The Foot Institute – Westlock focus on the medical and surgical treatment of the foot and ankle. Our podiatrists spend an average of 10 years in higher education, the first four years in undergraduate studies to achieve a Bachelors Degree, and the 2nd 4 years in Medical School to get a Podiatric Medical Degree. Podiatric Medical School is similar to standard medical school and in point of fact a number of podiatry training programs are located inside these institutions. After achieving a Podiatric Medial Degree, Podiatrists at the Foot Institute perform a hospital "internship" or residency for yet another one to three years.

Upon the finalization of the internship or residency, our Podiatrists have received thorough health care instruction with a concentration on problems involving the ankles and feet. They are instructed to treat difficulties extending from standard problems like ingrown and fungal toenails, to those which are a lot more challenging for instance, clubfoot, bunions, or reconstructive surgery of the foot. Doctors at the Foot Institute have significant surgical education which give them the experience necessary to perform surgical treatment on those complications that are best managed through surgical intervention.

Foot Institute Doctors furthermore have an extensive practical knowledge and understanding of biomechanics, which is the study of the forces which the feet and legs go through as we walk, run or perform other activities. Comprehending biomechanics and gait irregularities facilitates a Podiatrist to create footwear and orthotics which can deliver pain relief and defend against many troubles which the feet routinely encounter.
