Dr. Gary Prant can tell a lot from the way a person walks. As he explains it, one’s gait can reveal how the foot compensates for a lack of motion or for structural problems. With his findings, Dr. Prant can work with feet and joints, realigning the foot so his patients can walk comfortably without surgery or only going places via swimming. He calls this therapy foot manipulation, and it is just one of the nonsurgical options he offers at Arbor Foot Health Center. His many foot-wellness methods—which incorporate lasers, ultrasounds, and x-ray imaging—can treat several foot-centric issues, including sprains, athlete’s foot, gout, hammertoes, warts, and toenail fungus. He also custom fits orthotics and curates a stock of heel cushions, shoe sprays, and corn pads at his center’s foot store.
