    The importance of walking properly

    PODIATRY

    Study of every foot pathology in coordination with the medical team and applying the most innovative materials.

Bad postures, incorrect movements, deficiencies in sports techniques, congenital malformation or the use of inappropriate footwear, among other causes, can cause injuries to the feet such as bunions, hammer or claw toes, callosities, plantar fasciitis and/or pain in the heel…

Any foot problem causes discomfort and may cause injury of the knee, hip and spine, with a negative progression that without proper treatment can become a chronic injury.
iQtra’s Medicina Avanzada podiatry unit is coordinated with the specialists in orthopedics and sports medicine. Treatments for all pathologies of the foot are offered, as well as for all those ailments that begin in the knees or the spine but are the consequence of stepping badly.

The availability of a multidisciplinary, expert and operative team enables a broader view of the pathologies and allows us to focus on analyzing the therapies in an integral way. Thus, patients are always offered the best solution for the characteristics of their condition. All of this is provided by the technical team and the most innovative materials.

As Leonardo Da Vinci once said “feet are one of the most perfect engineering works ever”. This set of 26 bones and various tendons connect leg muscles and are responsible for carrying our weight when we are standing.

For this purpose, different techniques and materials are used, with the single aim of treating the mechanical-conditions given.

  • Dismetry (Length differences)
  • Muscle shortening
  • Claw toes
  • Personalized Insoles: we use the latest technology to offer our patients the best solution according to their needs and at their earliest convenience. Thanks to our system of plantar support, patients may have their insoles during the first podiatry consultation.
