Serving patients of all ages, Podiatric Consultants provides complete foot therapy and surgical foot treatment in the Kitchener–Waterloo and surrounding areas for your specific needs. Our office accepts new patients without a referral.

Our experienced staff offers thorough examinations, including in-office X-rays as required, in order to properly diagnose your foot ailment and prescribe the most effective treatments possible. We can provide lasting solutions to address all your podiatric concerns, from athletic injuries and nagging pains to diabetes-related problems and gait correction. We offer treatment for:

A Bunion is a bony prominence, typically at the base of the large toe which can slowly grow over time and cause-specific discomfort due to shoe gear rubbing over the prominence. This can cause some discomfort with standing or walking with closed shoe wear. The cause of bunions can be genetic but aggravated by ill-fitting shoe wear. Bunion pain can occur due to faulty foot biomechanics and function, as well as osteoarthritis.
A callus is a thick, hardened layer of skin that forms when the skin tries to prevent itself from any kind of friction. Calluses generally form on hands or feet, including the toes. Calluses can cause significant discomfort due to the pressure that occurs due to the thickening of the skin over bony prominences or over areas of the feet that are subjected to increased frictional forces causing the callus to build up.
Corns are essentially callused tissue that has a focal, hard centre that often runs deeper than Calluses. Hard corns usually form over the toes, while soft corns form in between the toes. The treatment for corns is similar to that of calluses.
Described as an unusual bend in the toe at the joints, making the top of the toe more prominent. Often painful in shallow-fitting shoes due to the blisters that can form but could also lead to corns. This deformity may worsen over time or become rigid, causing lasting deformity. Best to treat them early.
High arches
Some individuals have exceptionally high arches, which may lead to a number of difficulties ranging from occasional discomfort at the heel or ball of the foot from uneven weight distribution and increased pressure over these sites. Many people also develop Achilles tendonitis or Plantar Fasciitis due to a lack of support for their high arch.
Heel spurs
Heel Spurs can occur when the main supporting ligament of the arch is under strain. Many people don’t even realize that they have heel spurs until they consult a doctor or have an x-ray done. Heel Spurs are typically associated with Plantar Fasciitis. It is a misconception that the spur is the source of the pain, therefore, they do not require surgical removal. There are many non-surgical measures that can be employed to alleviate the symptoms associated with the heel spur.
Flat feet
A flat foot is referred to as a foot that has no arch. In most cases, the foot rolls inwards. Flat feet may not be annoying to some, but for most, the legs, knees, feet, hips, and back are all in pain because of the abnormal alignment. After the normal alignment is returned to the foot, usually the painful foot and postural symptoms are greatly alleviated.
Fungal infections
Fungal infections can occur anywhere on foot and can involve the skin, nails or hair. Wearing non-aerating closed shoes for prolonged periods can create an environment in the foot which is damp and warm, allowing fungal infection to take hold. Patchy scaling skin and cracks between the toes are a sign of fungal infections. With more chronic fungal infections, even the toenails can become involved. The symptoms include thicker toenails, discoloration and nail detachments from the nail bed. The earlier this is treated, the better, as it can cause permanent disfigurement of the toenails.
Plantar warts
Warts are caused by a viral infection of the superficial layers of the skin, typically more common on the sole of the foot, called Plantar Warts. When present on the heels or forefoot areas, which are subjected to greater pressures and possible breaks in the skin, this more readily allows the virus to penetrate. On non-weight-bearing areas, these can be raised, whereas they are typically flatter and deeper on the bottom of the foot with the development of an overlying callus. They can spread and vary in size. Warts must be differentiated from calluses/corn before initiating the appropriate treatment necessary.
Plantar fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is a ligamentous structure serving to provide support to the arch of the foot. When subjected to repeated overuse it can become inflamed, resulting in prolonged pain with weight-bearing. It is generally caused by inadequate support of the arch, especially with a foot that rolls inward. Aggravating factors include weight gain, overuse through rigorous physical activity or prolonged standing, particularly if in non-supportive shoes. Appropriate intervention and treatment, when undertaken early, can greatly reduce the discomfort that can be disabling.
Ingrown toenails
Ingrown toenails result when the edge of the nail creates pressure and may pierce the flesh, often leading to secondary infection. The infection can result in swelling and pain. This condition can reoccur depending on the cause. It is thought that wearing footwear that does not allow room for your toes can contribute to this occurring, but it can also result due to injury in sports, improper cutting or due to genetic predisposition. If you are prone to this concern, having your toenails trimmed by a podiatrist regularly can help avoid ingrown toenails. On occasion, surgical correction may be considered to address it permanently.
