Heel and arch pain:
Custom molded foot orthoses (inserts) for optimal alignment of the
fore-foot to rear-foot relationship and proper body weight transition
with no stress on the ankles, knees, hips and low back.
Over the counter shock absorption inserts with heel height and inner
arch build up pending on foot type.
Night splints (in front and behind of foot and ankle).
Physical therapy modalities including ultra sound, muscle stimulation,
and stretching exercises.
Rx NSAIDs (non steroid oral anti-inflammatory drugs) with or without
MRI and Ultra sound
lastly, surgical intervention which comprises less than 10% of population.
Warts belong to the human papilloma virus (HPV) and infect various
parts of the body aka verruca plantaris (plantar foot wart), verruca capitis
(scalp wart), manum (hand) vulgaris (body) etc.
All are highly contagious and resilient with high recurrence rate.
Acids in various strength (liquid verses solid such as putty) followed by
athletic tape for two days kept clean dry and intact - pending allergic
reactions and symptoms.
Histo-freeze which creates redness followed by blistering - may require
Cantha-cur and Podophylum creating blistering effect to the skin
Laser curattage - requires local wound care after burning warts with possible
scar tissue formation and re-currence.
Candin solution - modified form of medical yeast which is injected into the
wart and the body forming a hypersensitivity immune type IV reaction.
Above all, proper diagnosis is crucial since neoplastic lesions may resemble
warts. Lastly, excessive repetitive chemical and various irritants can lead to
Onychomycosis (toenail fungus):
Fungus is a kingdom with a numerous organism.
Toenail fungus is extremely resilient and may undergo a dormant stage once
environment is not suitable for the fungal infection on the toe.
It is a nail bed infection with separation of the nail bed from the nail plate associated
with discoloration, debris formation, malodor, skin infection such as athletes foot which
may become eczematous if not treated and of course pain.
Treatment vary on type of organism and severity / surface area of involvement and
Oral medication with careful screening each patient and monthly blood work is highly
effective in my practice. Be aware of organism, medication coverage, duration, and medical
condition since oral antifungal medication has alot of side effects and contra-indications.
