At iAID we believe in the importance of quality foot care as an integral aspect of our clients’ health. Conditions such as diabetes, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, vascular disease and other degenerative conditions affect the overall health of the feet. These conditions will often cause pain, skin problems, nerve damage, as well as deficiency of blood circulation. All of these affect the health and appearance of the feet as well as a person’s ability to use them.
