At our top-notch podiatry practice, Body & Feet, our expert and well-liked foot doctor is Dr. Eugene Shapiro. Dr. Shapiro is able to help people who suffer from a wide variety of foot problems and need podiatric care. Many types of our excellent foot care involve holistic medicine in Brighton Beach.
Our podiatrist, Dr. Shapiro, has over 20 years of experience in practicing podiatry and holds a degree in holistic health. At our podiatry practice, patients can have all different types of traditional foot ailments corrected, including corns, bunions, calluses, and athlete’s foot. However, our foot doctor also finds ways to use holistic medicine in Brighton Beach to make your feet healthier, feel more comfortable, and help your body alleviate some pain.
Many different types of foot problems are caused by poor biomechanics. If your walking gait is not correct, it can cause pain to take hold in your feet as well as in many other parts of your body. Our foot doctor is able to prescribe foot orthotics for you which can be worn in your shoes to help correct any imbalances created by your walking gait. Orthotic foot inserts can be used to help a foot when it is healing from a procedure, but they can also help a foot when it has some type of foot issue brought on by poor biomechanics. Prescription orthotics can help patients who have flexible hammer toes, foot pain caused by plantar fasciitis, as well as a way to keep bunions from enlarging. At our practice, our foot doctor also is able to perform a HyProCure minimally invasive procedure that will help you with long term foot and ankle flexibility and increase your ability to properly bear weight in your feet. This procedure is performed by our foot doctor who makes a small incision in the foot or ankle to insert a titanium stent between the ankle bone and heel bone. This procedure will help prevent the ankle bone from rolling inward. This small and minimally-invasive procedure can help with problems caused by misaligned feet which may include: back pain; hip pain; knee pain; foot pain; plantar fasciitis; flat feet; and many other types of body pain.
