Not only does Kilmore Dental offer exceptional oral healthcare, we also provide podiatry, audiology and osteopathy treatments
What Is Podiatry?
Podiatry is a field of medicine that deals with the treatment of the feet and ankles. A podiatrist specialises in the treatment of a variety of issues that affects the most vital part of locomotion.
Ailments such as skin problems, ingrown toenails, calluses, warts, pain of the heel, hammertoes, bunions and corns are all problems that a podiatrist is concerned with treating. A podiatrist is also able to provide care for infections, sprains and fractures of the ankle and all the areas below it.
In addition to being able to treat existing problems with the feet and ankles, a podiatrist can also aid with the prevention of any future issues. A good podiatrist should also be able to treat the problems that accompany other conditions such as arthritis and diabetes.
Often, we forget about how important our feet are in our daily lives and the amount of strain that we put on them. Podiatrists can recommend a host of treatment options for foot and ankle problems that may include certain exercises, medications and custom shoes or inserts. We need to take care of our feet the same way would with any other area of the body and perhaps more so given their importance in performing any physical exercise.
As a practice, we are always looking for ways to better your quality of life. By offering podiatry treatments we are able to give patients comprehensive care. If you have experienced any problems in your ankles and feet, it is best that you attend to them before they become more difficult to treat.
What Is Audiology?
Audiology is the specialist treatment of and diagnosis of problems such as loss of hearing, balance disorders, tinnitus and the rehabilitation of those with speech and hearing problems. Audiologists treat both children and adults and as the name suggests, are concerned with treating problems associated with hearing.
By combining the latest technologies with medical wisdom, audiology seeks to improve all aspects of your hearing and balance. Diagnostics play a leading role in any audiology treatment in order to better the problem at its root cause. If you have problems with speech, hearing or balance then audiology could be the treatment option for you.
At Kilmore Dental And Specialist Centre we always strive to provide our patients with a range of care that is not limited to dentistry. Audiology is a vitally important branch of medicine and deals with the preservations and restoration of one of our five major senses.
What Is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a manual therapy that seeks to promote general health and wellness in all areas of the body. A manual approach to therapy means that all treatments and diagnosis are done by hand and use no medicines or other invasive treatment options.
Osteopathy focuses on the frame of the body namely the spine, the muscles and joints. By strengthening these areas, Osteopathy aims to improve all major systems in the body including the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems. It is traditionally used alongside other treatments to promote wellness.
An osteopathic physician will assess the health of your muscles, joints and tissues and formulates a treatment plan. A large part of osteopathy is a personal desire to better one’s life and much of the improvement in these systems will be in your hands. That said, your osteopathic specialist will guide and support you the whole way through.
To continue our dedication to providing our patients with a full range of care, Kilmore Dental and Specialist Centre is now offering a treatment option to improve your quality of life. Osteopathic therapy will start with a few sessions where you may be asked to perform a few simple exercises. This will give us an opportunity to assess the areas that can be strengthened and to recommend a treatment plan.
