Since 2002, Multicare Health Clinic has combined medical doctors with chiropractors, physical therapists and massage therapists in one clinic in Siouxland. By combining several specialties under one roof, they are providing better outcomes treating health conditions from head to toe.
Twice a year, Multicare focuses on individuals desperately needing foot, ankle and heel pain relief by offering a FREE foot scan analysis with their comprehensive digital screening procedure (Nov. 9-20).
Treating hundreds of foot conditions again this year, Multicare continues to provide an astonishing 99 percent success rate helping Siouxlanders with plantar fasciitis, bunions, arthritis, heel spurs, painful arches, instep pain, toe pain, Morton’s Neuromas, and even tired, heavy, tingling or numb feet.
“There is always a reason someone has foot pain…and it’s NOT because their body is at a lack of ibuprofen. Once we developed this screening procedure to figure out what’s wrong with their feet, treating their condition was the easy part,” says clinic director Dr. Scott Sneller. “Many of these patients would have wound up having surgery without exploring their options, only to regret it later.”
How Multicare finds the cause of your foot pain
To help diagnose the cause of someone’s foot pain, above and beyond the normal foot examination one would typically expect, the physicians at Multicare are exclusively able to do three things.
First, they have invested in a motion x-ray unit to visualize the 26 bones of the foot in motion to pinpoint the problem areas within these joints.
You have free articles remaining.
Second, they have secured the latest 3-D laser imaging technology on the market today. It digitally creates a colorized image that depicts the three arches mapped out for the doctors. Scanning your foot for problems while weight bearing is the key, as this unit is accurate up to 300 microns (width of two strands of hair). This is the same technology that NASA used for industrial inspection of jet engines and other critical precision equipment.
Then, from diagnosis to treatment, the most recent piece of equipment used to aid in this process is Soft Tissue Oscillation Therapy. Like bringing the elasticity back to a rubber band, this application of an intermittent electrostatic field, only available at Multicare, comfortably causes a patient’s foot tissues to vibrate.
How Multicare relieves your foot pain
Weight gain, previous sprained ankles and improper shoes mixed with hereditary factors, or even just time, can cause one or all of the three arches in the foot to partially collapse. Restoring the foot's natural architecture and function is the key. Once any fallen arches or fixations are unlocked and restored, the three arches begin working together in unison, giving the pain-free springy feeling back to them.
After loosening up the soft tissues that were once holding your feet in a painful position, the Multicare doctors can gently realign and support the 26 bones comprising the three arches in each foot. Only AFTER CORRECTION like this should any inserts be custom made for your feet. If you have created your custom inserts BEFORE CORRECTION, your inserts will just be holding your foot in the uncorrected and painful position every time you wear them.
