The foot is a complex structure carrying your weight all day. We only pay attention to it when it starts to hurt. When this happens, we suddenly realise just how important our feet are. You can’t work properly. You can’t exercise. It makes you feel miserable. When this happens, you need an immediate and accurate diagnosis to get your life back.
It is common practice to have multiple scans taken, like MRI’s, X-Rays and ultrasound without getting the right diagnosis and treatment. Incorrectly selected medical scans and incorrectly prescribed therapies waste valuable time in getting you back to normal. Get it done right the first time by using the most advanced medical foot scan available combined with a clinical examination by a podiatrist. Very complex, hidden conditions can be unraveled and treated promptly saving you time and money.
While traditional medical imaging is very useful, a new technology specifically designed for feet is now available. It doesn’t only measure foot pressure but generates multitudes of useful data. It’s like having full blood tests on your feet. Every force generated while walking can be evaluated revealing where the stress is coming from that caused your injury.
If you are pain-free it can also be used as a screening tool detect possible issues or to enhance performance.
Family Podiatry Centre is one of the only private practice podiatry clinics in Singapore which utilize this scanning technology. Book your appointment today.
