Dr. Wachtel, the Plymouth Meeting podiatrist, is an expert in biomechanical therapies. Biomechanics is a complicated, physics-based knowledge of how the human body works during movement and relaxation. The treatments for biomechanical difficulties are accomplished by analyzing the posture and structural defects that are causing the body to compensate. Structural compensation effects a variety of muscles and soft tissues in the human body. This can lead to problems like achy legs, arthritis, nerve and skin conditions, shin splints, sore feet, knees and hips and lower back pain.
Dr. Wachtel’s office is comfortable and state of the art. He employs computerized readouts to develop customized orthotics and uses computerized gate assessments to help patients with equilibrium problems. He combines x-rays and lab screenings to diagnose problem conditions such as arthritis and diabetes. When the diagnosis is complete, he counteracts any pathology or foot problems and takes care of patients with diabetic foot wounds and infections due to poor blood circulation.
