Foot Clinic by Paty Villanueva is located at Hospital CMQ City Center
Foot care requires more attention than just keeping the nails trimmed or colored. It requires special assistance to each and every one of its parts. Every day, a person walks between six and ten thousand steps. Our feet are our support, and they need a solid foundation and good care in order to function perfectly.
Depending on the activity that is performed, age, and other factors, foot care should be personalized. Fortunately, there are experts in the prevention and treatment of feet ailments: Podiatrists.
¿What is the difference between a pedicurist and a podiatrist?
The Royal Spanish Academy defines podiatry as a medical branch. Podiatry focuses on treating conditions and deformities of the feet, without going beyond the limits of minor surgery.
The main difference between these two professions is that the pedicurist works within an aesthetic approach, paying attention to the presentability of the foot. On the other hand, the podiatrist is a trained professional. They have the necessary therapeutic podiatry knowledge, skills, and aptitudes to carry out procedures aimed at prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

¿What is next for Foot Clinic by Paty Villanueva?
With the inauguration of a completely remodeled clinic at Hospital CMQ City Center, and a new office inside the first-class and newly opened Hospital CMQ Riviera Nayarit, Paty Villanueva is more than pleased:
“To be able to grow as a team is a great step for us,” she says. “We will be implementing a completely new biomechanical study in the region. It will allow us to know the patient’s walking patterns through a pressure mat. It is a baropodometric study that will show us precisely how the patient steps and sets pressure on its feet. And thanks to this, we will be able to know the areas in which we should focus and work on.”
Podiatry clinics are for everyone. It is not necessary to suffer from an illness or ailment in order to properly care for our feet. One should lose their shyness and attend a podiatry clinic, even without feeling discomfort, but rather as a preventive measure, to acquire more knowledge and receive better care.
