Strapping in podiatry refers to the application of specialized tapes or bandages to support and stabilize the feet or ankles. It is commonly used to provide temporary relief and prevent further injury in conditions such as sprains, strains, or ligament instability. The tape is applied in specific patterns to restrict excessive movement, reduce pain, and improve joint stability. Strapping can also help to alleviate pressure on certain areas of the foot or provide support to weakened or injured structures. It is usually performed by a podiatrist or trained healthcare professional who has knowledge of proper taping techniques. The strapping is typically temporary and may need to be reapplied periodically depending on the individual’s condition and healing progress.
Orthotics refers to custom-made shoe inserts or devices that are designed to support and improve the alignment of the feet. They are commonly prescribed by podiatrists to address various foot conditions, such as flat feet, high arches, plantar fasciitis, and other abnormalities. Orthotics can help distribute pressure evenly, provide stability, and correct foot posture while walking or standing. They are typically made from materials like foam, gel, or rigid plastic, and can be inserted into regular footwear. Orthotics can help alleviate foot pain, improve function, and prevent further foot-related problems. They are customized based on an individual’s specific foot shape and condition, and are typically fitted and prescribed by a podiatrist or foot specialist.
Diabetic Shoes and Insoles
Diabetic shoes and insoles are specially designed footwear and inserts intended for individuals with diabetes. These products are created to provide comfort, support, and reduce the risk of foot complications associated with diabetes. Diabetic shoes have features like extra depth, wide toe boxes, and soft, seamless interiors to accommodate any foot deformities, swelling, or neuropathy (nerve damage). They are typically made from breathable materials to prevent excessive moisture and promote circulation. Diabetic insoles, on the other hand, are inserts that fit inside regular shoes and provide additional cushioning, shock absorption, and pressure redistribution to protect the feet. Both diabetic shoes and insoles aim to reduce the risk of ulcers, sores, and other foot injuries that can lead to serious complications. It is recommended for individuals with diabetes to consult with a podiatrist or healthcare professional to assess their specific needs and determine if diabetic shoes or insoles are appropriate for them.
Anti Fungal Nail Products
Formula 3® Antifungal is a topical treatment designed to effectively treat and prevent athlete’s foot and ringworm. The key active ingredient in this product is tolnaftate, which has been approved by the FDA for over 50 years for the treatment of these fungal infections.
What sets Formula 3® apart from other tolnaftate-based products is its patented technology that utilizes natural jojoba oil as the vehicle. Unlike other products that contain tolnaftate in a suspension form, Formula 3® has tolnaftate in-solution. This means that the tolnaftate is completely integrated with the jojoba oil, making it impossible to separate the two. When applied to the skin, the jojoba oil is quickly absorbed, delivering the tolnaftate directly to the infected area. Click here for more information.
Formula 7® is a newly patented, paraben-free antifungal microemulsion that contains soluble tolnaftate. It is formulated with cosmetic ingredients, bactericidal agents, and key components that provide unique benefits for the skin and nails.
The main active ingredient, soluble tolnaftate, is a technology developed by The Tetra Corporation, known for its effectiveness in treating fungal infections. Formula 7® is the first tolnaftate microemulsion, which received a U.S. Patent Award in 2021.
What sets Formula 7® apart is its combination of cosmetic ingredients that not only combat fungal infections but also rehydrate and restore the natural physical properties and appearance of the skin and nails with each use. Click here for more information.
