feet-collageWarm weather and outdoor activities mean lots of sandals and either bare feet or nearly bare feet. We’ve had sand, dust, tan, grass stains and calluses from sandals or flip flops rubbing all becoming a part of our summer fun.

You can get your feet back on track for cooler weather and school activities. We have Cool Breeze™ laser treatment to help overcome toenail fungus or plantars wart. You can receive your treatments in our office with little to no down-time. You can learn more about the benefits of cool laser treatment at our special website for this therapy — Indiana  Laser Treatment for Toe Nail Fungus. Topical treatment of lotions or liquids that are placed on the nails which are infected with the fungus is seldom successful. Oral medication in the form of pills or liquid are a chemical choice that has a high failure rate. Patients and doctors alike appreciate the non-invasive form of treatment found with the laser.

Foot pain, particularly heel pain, can be relieved with our other in-office treatment option — EPAT® — Pulse Activation/Shock Wave Therapy. An alternative to pain medication or surgery, the EPAT® process has applications for various discomfort conditions as well as heel pain. You can learn more about our EPAT® services at the specific website we have for the treatment — Indiana Shock Wave Treatment for Pain.

We’ve been offering these non-invasive treatments, available at our clinics, for several months now, with definite success for the people who needed the treatment. They were discussed in an earlier blog post entitled: The 2011 Non-Invaders at Hoosier Foot and Ankle.

At Hoosier Foot and Ankle, I and Dr. Jagger make a thorough assessment of your foot care needs before recommending any form of treatment. There will be times when aggressive treatment such as surgery is the best choice, but many other times when our conservative choices are appropriate. You can call 317-660-2115 to make a consultation appointment or you may use the online appointment request option available at the website 24/7 for your convenience. Get your foot in the door and we’ll take care of the rest.
