At the Dubai Podiatry Centre, we are world renowned for our food and ankle correction for flat feet using our orthotic laboratory in our clinic. We have made it even easier for patients to get their treatment completed. Using the latest technology we can make three different types of orthotics that are worn six weeks apart to lift and align parts of the foot without requiring return appointments to Dubai. This means that you do not have to travel to Dubai every six weeks for the next step of the orthotic process. All the stages are completed in one single appointment and we remind you when to use your next orthotic to move to the next stage of your treatment.

We can keep in touch using WhatsApp using video and photos if necessary to see the progress of your foot and to check the alignment on completion. This treatment plan was devised to see if your time and money on return appointments to Dubai. We are excited to be able to provide the service to our Saudi patients.

At the Dubai Podiatry Centre we have made it even easier for our Saudi patients flying or driving in to Dubai for the weekend or a day visit.  Our work famous foot correction with orthotics and insoles is dedicated towards Saudi patients so that they only come to our clinic one-time therefor saving travel time and costs. The orthotics and insoles are all made within the same appointment in our laboratory while the patient waits. With the new advanced technology we can make the orthotics within one hour and also make multiple pairs as the foot begins to change position. Each pair of orthotics is worn for six weeks and then the next pair is worn for the next six weeks as the foot advances, the arches lift and the ankle becomes straighter. When booking the appointment, make a note to tell the reception that you are flying in from Saudi so that we can make you a longer appointment and have the entire team on hand to make all of your orthotics and insoles for you during your single visit. We hope our Saudi patients enjoy their dedicated service in providing foot care to them at the Dubai Podiatry Centre.

The short leg always has knee pain on the inside. During high levels of activity the longer knee will pain on the outside and give Iliotibial Band tightness. The shorter leg will have a lower foot arch and the inside of the shorter leg knee takes the strain. An orthotic that is specific for this condition will align the pelvis instantly. Left and right orthotic will be very different from each other.

 



Did you know you don’t have to cut a corn out to remove it?

A corn forms from an area of high pressure. under the ball of the foot it always develops when one of the ‘knuckle bones’ drops down and pushed through the muscle layer and fat layer. It causes burning and pain. The corn will eventually disappear on its own if you lift the offending ‘knuckle bone’ back up and the corn stops growing and normal skin takes over.

 

Use Foot Corns Tape for 28 days to lift the bones back up.

 

In severe cases you might have to lift and tighten the entire foot using the  Footerella System for 6 weeks to structurally correct the foot also.

 

Using Bunny Pads gives instant cushioning and can be used to give pain relief.

 

 Using the Corns Suck helps to repair the collagen layer faster to remove the corns very hard keratin plug.



High arches is termed “Pes Cavus” . The heel bone is called the calcaneus. With a high arch the calcaneus sits at a different angle. The back of the heel bone presses on the Achilles tendon and the under surface of the heel bone pulls the insertion of the plantar fascia on the bone.

Wearing a shoe with a raised heel orthotic with a fore foot arch extension to stretch out the medical foot arch will correct the biometrics of this problem. It affects the longer legs heel more than the other.

If the problem is not corrected then a boney swelling can develop at the back of the heel called a “Haglund’s Deformity“.



 

The lower leg side gives the most pain on the side on the lower back. This hip is higher and tilts back. It puts pressure on the nerve that supplies the outside of the leg and foot. An orthotic that is specific for this condition will align the pelvis instantly. Left and right orthotic will be very different from each other.

A bunion is a painful bony area behind the big toe and a bunionette is a painful bony area behind the 5th toe. It can happen for women, men and children. Some bunions are genetic, some are from ligament laxity, some from poor foot alignment in the ankle and arches and others are caused from footwear that is too tight. 

Three Main Types of Bunions

Type 1 – Small boney growth from tight shoes 

When shoes are too tight it causes pressure in the forefoot to the area behind the big toe and behind the fifth toe. This occurs in men and women.  To check if you have this type of bunion and bunionette, look at the big toenail and toe when standing. It should be level and straight. Look at your shoes when wearing them. Ballerina pumps, slip on shoes and high heels are the main culprit. Are the boney areas exactly where the edge of the forefoot where the shoe cuts across the top and side of the foot?  The pressure from tight footwear makes the bone react and grow larger. It may also start to grow a swelling called a buses to protect the bone which makes the lumps look larger than they actually are.

Treatment

  1. Better fitting shoes. 
  2. Make the foot slimmer and smaller. This can be reduced by using forefoot tapes by  for women or   tapes for men with a  or  insole. This insole lifts the forefoot bones back up together. The tapes minimise the width of the forefoot making the foot size smaller and slimmer by half shoe size to one shoe size smaller making it fit into shoes again. 

To prevent it coming back use beauty and the bunion tapes when wearing high heels or tight shoes such as dress work shoes for men and ballerina pumps or high heels for women. They keep the foot small and tight so that it does not press against the shoe causing bony growth’s. 

 

 

 

 

Type 2 – Forefoot splay and widening

This type is exclusively found in women’s feet particularly with hormone changes or after having children or age related.

Normal female hormones make the ligaments softer and more chewing gum like. They hold the forefoot bones together tightly. But with hormones affecting these ligaments the forefoot gets wider over time. The big toe also starts to deviate and move towards the second toe and the toenail plate on the big toe also turns. To see if you have Type II bunion stand on your feet and look at your big toe. If the big toe moves across towards the second toe then you have Type II bunion. It should be noted that there is a good medial arch and straight ankle and there is no involvement from the medial arch collapsing. 

Treatment

  1. Use the  system for women and system for men. 
  2. 2. All three components require addressing. These include muscles,bones and ligaments.  The 3 insoles in the system  are divided into three stages to lift the metatarsal bones in the forefoot back up again. The forefoot binding tapes squeeze the metatarsals together again making the forefoot slimmer again by pulling the bunion and bunionette together. The electro muscle stimulator in the systems works by strengthening the muscles that also help to keep the metatarsals together. This is important as the insoles and binding tapes can make the muscles week during the 6-12 week process. This must be counterbalanced by engaging these specific muscles. 

For Women

For Men

 

Type 3 – Bunion and bunionette with medial ankle collapse, medial arch collapse, forefoot splaying.  

This is the most complex of all the bunions. This can be found in children men and women. It starts with the medial ankle leaning in and collapsing the medial arch. The forefoot then splays, collapses and widens making the first and fifth metatarsal push outwards. The big toe will appear to be moving towards the second toe and the toenail will be leaning away from its centre position. The longer the problem goes on, the fifth toe will also start to lean towards the 4th toe and the nail will turn down towards the ground also. 

Treatment

  1. Firstly, ankle must be straightened using The  that tilts the foot which in turn straightens the ankle. It should be worn for 3 month. In children this orthotic is called . After completing  three months the for men or the  system for women and children should be used for 6-12 weeks. A silicone toe aligner my also be used which is custom made to help if the big toe has deviated an extreme amount.
