Many types of foot problems are treated with hydromassage provided by whirlpool therapy.
Whirlpool therapy is often used to promote healing after surgery, injury or wounds, and for treating various foot and ankle problems. Diabetics may receive whirlpool therapy to help keep their feet healthy.
Circulation is stimulated and dead skin is removed by the soothing water in the whirlpool, and many patients find their whirlpool therapy to be enjoyable.
Our doctors treat certain types of foot problems with non-invasive therapy using ultrasound.
This pain-free therapy stimulates circulation and aids in healing bone, joint and tissue problems. It is used to treat a number of different foot problems, including the reduction of swelling around neuromas and the treatment of plantar fasciitis. It is often prescribed by our doctors to promote recovery after foot surgery or injury.
