What is Podiatry
Podiatry is a medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower leg. Podiatrists are trained to care for conditions such as bunions, ingrown toenails, heel spurs, and plantar fasciitis.
They may also prescribe custom-made compounded medications or orthotics, or shoe inserts to improve foot function and alleviate pain. If you are experiencing any problems with your feet or ankles, be sure to consult with a podiatrist.
Every patient is unique, and so is every foot problem. At Bayview Pharmacy, we understand this and offer personalized podiatry compounding services to create medications tailored to each individual's needs.

Shoe inserts are another option for improving foot function and alleviating pain. There are a variety of types of inserts available, including arch supports, heel cups, and gel pads.
Shoe inserts are beneficial for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, they can help to improve foot function and alleviate pain. This is because they provide cushioning and support to the feet, which can help to correct any abnormal positioning or movements. Additionally, shoe inserts can help to increase stability and balance, which is important for those who are active or have a history of falls.
Shoe inserts are also a great way to protect your feet from injury. Providing extra cushioning and support, they help to absorb the shock from impact and reduce the stress on your feet. This can be especially helpful if you are prone to foot pain or injuries.
Finally, shoe inserts can help prevent future foot problems. If you have orthotics or inserts custom-made for your shoes, you will be less likely to develop issues such as plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, or bunions. So if you are looking for an easy way to improve foot function and alleviate pain, shoe inserts may be your solution.
Podiatry and surgery treatment go hand in hand when resolving certain issues with the feet. Surgery may be necessary to correct problems such as bunions, heel spurs, or Achilles tendon tears. While podiatry can help to alleviate pain and improve foot function, surgery may be the only option for a full resolution of the issue.
If you are considering surgery as a treatment option for your podiatry condition, it is important to consult with a qualified surgeon. He or she can assess your condition and determine if surgery is the best course of action. They will also be able to advise you on the risks and benefits of surgery and answer any questions you may have.
If surgery is recommended, it is important to follow all of the post-operative instructions provided by your surgeon. This will help ensure a quick and successful recovery. You may also be prescribed customized pain creams and gels that we compound here at Bayview Pharmacy to help you through your post-surgical journey.
