The foot is the foundation of the body

acc_foot_problem_001 Flat Feet, and other foot problems, can lead to degeneration and pain in the knees, back and other parts of the body. Pain and degeneration in the foot itself can also occur. ACC also specializes in the treatment of flat feet in children and adults. We are also effective treating many other kinds of foot problems including Plantar Fasciitis, heel spur, Hammertoes, Bunion and diabetic foot. The foot and its relationship to the rest of the body is often not well understood. Yet many of the knee and back problems that people suffer from have their origins in flat and pronated (slanted in) feet. How-Orthotics-Work-2

ACC operates the first and only medical grade foot orthotics lab in Vietnam. Applying Swiss Cad-Cam technology, we make a wide variety of foot orthotics and effectively treat nearly all of the common foot problems.

Our doctors and physiotherapist are highly trained to diagnose and treat foot conditions such as flat feet and to treat knee pain, back pain, and ankle pain that result from instabilities and stresses caused by the flat feet.

How we fix flat feet at ACC?

 

Common foot problems treated at ACC:

  • Heel Spur

    heel-pur

    A heel spur is a piece of calcium or bone that sticks out from the bottom of the heel bone and lies within the fibers of the plantar fascia. When walking, the spur digs into the plantar fascia and causes small micro-tears in the plantar fascia. This produces inflammation and pain in the heel. At times, this pain may radiate into the arch.

  • Plantar Fasciitis

    plantar_fascia Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick filamentous/ fibrous band on the bottom of the foot that is attached to the heel, and runs forward to insert into the ball of the foot. Plantar Fasciitis is a painful inflammation of this ligament band, which usually occurs at its attachment to the heel; however, the inflammation and pain of Plantar Fasciitis can occur anywhere on the bottom of the foot. plantar_fascia-3

  • Bunions

     

    Bunion2(400)

    A bunion is a common deformity that occurs in the great toe. Pressure against the great toe causes it to bend outward, sometimes across the other smaller toes of the feet. The chief cause of Bunions is pronation, a turning outward of the foot at the ankle, which causes a person to walk on the inner border of the foot. The result is a bump on the inner side of the foot, and a big toe which is pushed over toward the second toe. When Flat Feet occur along with pronation, the foot becomes even more flexible and susceptible to bunion formation. Bunions are unsightly and often very painful, but sometimes they do not cause pain at all. In the early stages, they can be corrected by foot orthotics and physical therapy. Surgery is sometimes necessary in the more severe cases. Bunion

  • Hammertoes

    hammer-toe Hammertoes the result of deformed toe joints, tight tendons that attach to the toe, and misaligned toe bones. The usual appearance of a hammertoe is a toe bent upward at the middle toe joint, so that the top of this joint rubs against the top of the shoe. The remainder of the toe is bent downward so that, instead of the entire toe bearing weight, only the tip of the toe bears weight. Pain can occur on the top of the toe, the tip of the toe or in both areas.

  • Morton's Neuroma

    morton Mortons Neuroma is characterized by pain, numbness or burning in the forefoot, particularly between the third and fourth toes. Mortons Nuroma, like many foot-related pathologies, arises from a bio-mechanically unsound structure that has been subjected to excessively repetitive activity, chronic compression or squeezing of the bones in the forefoot, caused by a restrictive toe box in ill-fitting shoes. Repetitive and excessive collapse of the metatarsal arch leads to compression and irritation of nerve fibers between the toes.

  • Achilles Tendonitis

     

    foot_achilles_tendon_symptoms01

    Symptoms of Achilles Tendonitis include inflammation of the Achilles tendon accompanied by sharp pain behind the heel. This pain is often felt during the first few steps in the morning or after long periods of rest.
It is caused by micro-tears occurring in the Achilles tendon from excessive and repetitive stretching or from overtraining the calf muscles (doing “too much, too soon”). At ACC, we treat Achilles Tendonitis with Physiotherapy, Acupuncture, and foot orthotics.

  • The Diabetic Foot

    Diabetes affects every part of the body, including the feet. At ACC, we make the finest diabetic foot orthotics available anywhere in the world.

    Care of the diabetic foot is extremely important. The sugar affects the nerves of the feet, causing peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy is a disease, which can produce anything from strange feelings in the feet (burning, tingling, numbness, etc.), to a complete loss of sensation. The lack of sensation makes the diabetic more likely to injure their feet without knowing it. This makes the diabetic more susceptible to infections; fractures are not felt and do not heal properly; and severe bone and joint disease which changes the contour of the foot. diabetic-foot Diabetes can lead to foot ulcers and amputations. Control of blood sugar is essential for a diabetic to stay healthy, but foot orthotics and foot treatment can go a long way in keeping those suffering from this disease healthy and walking.
