Présentation

The team of professionals at Clínica Benegas diagnose and treat all the illnesses that affect the feet, from the most simple to the most complex. Because it is a comprehensive clinic, a diagnosis of the patient’s podiatric health is done before each treatment and the most adequate is selected, which could be Surgery, Biomechanical or Chiropody.

Surgery

Foot surgery has made great progress during the last few years, progress which is associated with the increased knowledge of foot biomechanics, which allows the development of less aggressive and more specific surgical techniques. The advances in anaesthesia and the osteosynthesis of small fragments allow for better recovery and reduce the post operatory pain to a minimum.

At the new Clínica Benegas, and through its new state of the art surgical group with over seventeen years experience, the most proven and advanced surgical techniques are used in each of the existing pathologies. In addition, the new surgical group counts on the services of an anaesthetist (Doctor Juan Zaballos), which allows the completion of the patient´s local anaesthesia with sedation.

Bunions, hammer toes, neuromas and all alterations in the front part of the foot are operated on with local anaesthesia. Flat feet, claw feet and other more complex illnesses, may require the sedation of the patient. The surgical team at Clínica Benegas uses techniques that are barely invasive and with excellent results for the correction of infantile flat feet that do not respond to insole treatments.

Biomechanical insoles

Accommodative insoles

These are soft insoles that adapt to the arch of the foot to reduce pressures and avoid overload and ulcerations. They are especially suited to diabetics and people with little plantar fat padding like people who are elderly and arthritic.

Functional insoles

These are insoles that improve the function by synchronizing the movements of the feet, maintaining the foot in its most correct position. The functional insoles are created after an exhaustive biomechanical exploration of the foot which determines the neutral or ideal position of the foot for each patient.

Plaster mould

It is currently the most exact way of capturing the forefoot-rearfoot relation of each patient for the correct manufacturing of the insole. After the corresponding correction of the positive plaster mould, according to the degrees of correction assessed during the examination, a functional insole is created, which can be of different materials according to its use and the person being treated.

Types of functional insoles:

Everyday insoles:

Clínica Benegas is a pioneer in Spain in the use of carbon fibre in insoles, a material which allows great control of the foot without occupying too much space in the shoe. From 1.2 mm thick and of different consistencies (rigid, semi rigid and flexible) it is used in a normal shoe and even in high heeled shoes.

Sports insoles:

For sports, thermoplastics or foams that are semi rigid are used; these provide shock-absorbing properties that adapt to sports use.

Through the combination of different materials and after the mechanical analysis of each sport, at Clínica Benegas we personalize the insoles, marking a difference if it is a sport that requires more shock-absorbing, like football, basketball or handball, or others that need more control like golf, skiing or cycling.

What do we treat with functional insoles?

Pains specific to the foot like plantar fasciitis, Morton foot, excess weight,... as well as ankle, knee and back pains, which obviously improve with the functional control of the feet.

At a sports level the control of the feet not only improves overloading and tendinous injuries, but it prevents and reduces the number of injuries in all types of sports.

Chiropody

Among the most frequent injuries are the verrucas, corns, nails...

The centre´s medical and scientific focus allows our chiropodists to detect situations of risk in groups like diabetics and arthritis sufferers.
