Am I a Candidate for In-Home Podiatry Services?
If you keep missing foot checks or other podiatry appointments, it’s time to consider the benefits of in-home podiatry care. Learn how in-home services work and what services we can provide in the privacy of your own home.

Routine podiatry care is often part of a treatment plan for those living with diabetes and other chronic health conditions. If you’re not able to travel to the office for appointments, you may be a candidate for the in-home podiatry services available at Foot and Ankle Specialists in Memorial City, The Woodlands, and Huntsville, Texas.

Our experienced podiatrists offer a wide range of services in the comfort of your home. We deliver the same high-quality services that you’d receive in the office without the hassles of driving or finding reliable transportation.

How in-home podiatry services work

In-home podiatry services support those with ongoing foot and ankle issues that need regular care. Our providers bring the necessary equipment to your home to address podiatric conditions like:

Our team can also provide foot hygiene services such as toenail trimming and skin care to lower your risk for ingrown nails, dry or cracked skin, and other foot health issues.

We can provide house calls to evaluate and treat different causes of foot pain. For those who benefit from Medicare-approved foot bath medication, our team can ensure it’s delivered right to your home.

Good candidates for in-home podiatry care

There are many reasons you might be a candidate for the in-home podiatry services we offer through Foot and Ankle Specialists.

If you’re physically limited by medical issues, we can come to you. Common conditions that prevent travel to our office include:

  • Strokes
  • Arthritis
  • Impaired vision
  • Postsurgical recovery

Our team also specializes in caring for the needs of older people who may not be able to make it into the office because they rely on a wheelchair or lack access to transportation.

Benefits of in-home podiatry services

In addition to not having to travel away from home to get high-quality foot care, our in-home podiatry services also offer other benefits for you and your loved ones.

If your family or friends are taking care of your essential needs but don’t have experience in foot care, our team can provide some relief. We provide toenail trimming and other services to properly care for your feet and lower your risk for complications like diabetic ulcers and other foot wounds.

Our in-home services ensure you receive preventive care like routine foot checks to identify early warning signs of infection, poor blood circulation, and nerve damage (neuropathy). Early intervention of these issues can prevent your need for surgery and other invasive treatments.

During in-home visits, our podiatric specialists can also address other issues that affect your foot and ankle health. For instance, we can provide injections of steroids and other medications into your joints to ease the stiffness and pain of arthritis. We can also bring X-ray technology to your home if you need a diagnosis.
