Medical Foot Care

Optimal foot health is critical to your safety and the prevention of long-term complications related to chronic conditions. Yet many people never think about foot care until they are in a lot of pain and discomfort. This is unfortunate because, in most cases, foot pain is preventable and treatable. A certified foot care nurse can make a world of difference to your mobility and quality of life.

Additional Treatments 

Swift Therapy for Plantar and Common Warts

FIT Healthcare is excited to introduce Swift Microwave Therapy, a revolutionary, FDA-
approved technology that is a highly effective way to treat common and plantar warts
and resolve these lesions for good. Swift is non-destructive immunotherapy that gives
you the power to defeat warts using your own body’s defenses.

What are the benefits of Swift? 

  • 85%+ Efficacy Rate
  • Less than 1% recurrence
  • Treatment time in minutes
  • NO downtime between sessions
  • NO bandages, blistering, or wounding
  • NO at-home care

How does Swift work? 

Swift attacks the root of the problem. Warts are caused by one of the various strains
of HPV virus, which go undetected by the immune system. This microwave
technology uses heat to awaken the immune system to the presence of HPV, so your
body can now actively fight the virus. Swift is unlike other treatments that only
address the symptom (a wart) versus the root cause (the HPV virus). This is why
Swift ensures there is little to no chance of your wart reappearing after completing

Treatment Outlook 

  • Average of 3- 4 Swift sessions
  • Treatments spaced 4 weeks apart
  • Between treatments, the warts will shrink as your immune system works
  • Your nurse will evaluate your progress at each appointment
  • Follow-up with your nurse 12 weeks after your final treatment

What can I expect during treatment?

Microwave energy will be administered in 5 doses on the infected tissue, lasting for 2
seconds with each dose. While pain during treatment is variable, most patients will
feel some level of discomfort for 2-3 seconds as the tissue temperatures are
elevated. However, there is rarely any pain post-treatment. Swift will not break the
surface of your skin, so no bandages or creams are required. You are free to go back
to any daily activities immediately following your appointment!

JOBST Medical Compression Therapy 

At FIT, we offer a wide range of venous solutions, more specifically, compression therapy. Compression therapy for legs means wearing special medical compression stockings that come in different lengths and styles, to suit a variety of venous diseases and individual needs. So, why wear compression stockings? Because they help to normalize the blood flow, to close venous valves better again, and ease typical problems such as heavy legs. For this reason, compression stockings may also help to reduce heavy, swollen legs during pregnancy or long days of sitting or standing at work. Compression therapy is also a good solution for people who regularly take long flights or journeys: compression stockings for travel are specially designed for this purpose. JOBST compression garments can be a major relief and provide help for a number of different venous or lymphatic diseases. Regardless of the severity of your condition, JOBST has an expertly designed product to suit your need. What conditions do JOBST compression stocking treat? Spider veins, varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis, lymphedema, foot, ankle, and leg ulcers, chronic venous insufficiency, chronic edema or swelling, lymphatic or venous diseases, lipedema, and much more.
