Dr. Jeffrey Wachtel, the Doylestown podiatrist, is renowned for providing biomechanical therapy. Bio-mechanics is a complicated, physics-based knowledge of how the body functions when moving and relaxing. Treating bio-mechanical problems is accomplished by analyzing the patients posture and the structural defects that are causing their bodies to compensate. This compensation effects a tremendous variety of muscles and soft tissue in the human body leading to conditions like shin splints, lower back pain, arthritis, achy legs, sore feet, knees and hips and even nerve and skin disorders.
The office of Wachtel Family Foot Care is both comfortable and state of the art. Using computerized readouts he crafts customized orthotics and computerized gate assessments to stabilize his patients who suffer from equilibrium difficulties. Combining lab results and x-rays, he can diagnose major conditions such as arthritis and diabetes. When the diagnosis is complete, he can neutralize many foot troubles and helps patients who suffer from foot wounds due to diabetes and infections resulting from poor circulation of the blood.
