Find a Uniprix location offering foot care services
Many of our sales locations offer foot care services, which, in some cases, are delivered by certified foot care nurses. These specialized health professionals will be happy to answer your questions and provide you with the information you need on foot health issues, such as:
- Calluses, corns and soft corns (between toes) – thickening of the skin as a result of friction;
- Callosity – similar to corns, but found on the heels, soles and toes;
- Cracked heels – when callused skin on the heel cracks as a result of loss of suppleness and elasticity;
- Ingrown toenails – when part of the toenail grows into the skin causing inflammation;
- Deformed toenails.
Do you suffer from diabetes? We can help, since many of our Uniprix-affiliated pharmacists offer foot care services. It’s widely recognized that people with diabetes run a greater risk of developing problems with their feet. That’s because diabetes leads to poorer blood flow, which in turn causes slower healing of wounds and a loss of feeling in the lower limbs. It is therefore important to regularly monitor the condition of your feet.
Arthritis, which is a condition affecting the joints, also leads to foot problems in the form of pain and swelling. If you have arthritis, visit one of our sales locations offering foot care services.
And remember that healthy feet are key to staying active!
Please note that foot care services vary from one sales location to the next. To learn more, ask about foot care at one of our stores offering this service.
