Even if you are not currently using alternative therapies, it may be nice to develop a list of a couple of choices for different podiatric conditions. These alternate modalities could provide other approaches to a problem that is resistant to attempted treatments and as last efforts before more invasive treatments are required.
Whatever thoughts you may have about alternative medicine, the one thing we cannot do in podiatry is automatically discredit and suppress treatments that could potentially have a role in how we practice medicine in the years to come.
