Take a more in depth look into the services we offer. 

Orthotics

Orthotics are special shoe or heel inserts a Podiatrist prescribes that are custom-made specifically for you. As a Podiatrist, Rhett may prescribe orthotics to treat foot, leg, or back conditions. Conditions which may require orthotics include plantar fasciitis, sports injuries, leg length difference, flat feet, high arches and hip, knee, ankle and back pain to name but a few. Orthotics work by altering the alignment of a patient, redistribute weight off painful areas in the body, increase shock absorption, and improve balance.

Ingrown Nails

Ingrown toe nails are extremely common in the Podiatry practice but they are also extremely painful. An ingrown toe nail is cause by a variety of things but most notably they are incorrect cutting techniques of the toe nail, incorrect shoe-wear, injury to the nail and genetics. As a Podiatrist – Rhett will remove the ingrown piece of nail either conservatively or through a procedure called a nail wedge resection.
