Plantar Warts

Treatment for Plantar Warts in Manteno, IL

Plantar warts, caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), are small growths that appear on the soles of the feet. These warts often manifest as rough, grainy lesions with tiny black dots, causing discomfort or pain, especially when walking or standing. Anyone can get plantar warts, but they're more prevalent in children, teenagers, and individuals with weakened immune systems. Factors like walking barefoot in damp communal areas, skin abrasions, or prolonged foot pressure increase susceptibility. At Prairie Rock Foot and Ankle Clinic, our experienced podiatrists understand the inconvenience and discomfort these warts cause. If you notice persistent or painful lesions on your feet, schedule an appointment at the Manteno, IL location to rule out plantar warts. Our team offers compassionate care, utilizing cutting-edge treatments tailored to your needs.

Understanding Treatment for Plantar Warts

Plantar warts, caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), are stubborn growths on the soles of feet, often appearing as small, rough patches that can cause discomfort or pain while walking. They're prevalent among various age groups and thrive in warm, moist environments, like showers or swimming pools. Prairie Rock Foot and Ankle Clinic offers cutting-edge SWIFT therapy for those seeking advanced treatment. This innovative procedure harnesses microwave technology to target and eliminate plantar warts effectively. Unlike traditional methods, SWIFT doesn't involve incisions or anesthetics. Instead, it delivers precise, controlled energy pulses directly to the affected area, stimulating the body's immune response to tackle the virus causing the plantar warts. Our compassionate team at Prairie Rock understands the impact these warts can have on your daily life. With SWIFT, we aim to provide a quicker, less invasive solution for wart removal, often requiring fewer sessions than conventional treatments. The procedure is relatively painless, and you can resume your daily activities immediately.
