We’ve Got the Father’s Day Gift that Dad Actually Wants!

Are you looking for that perfect Father’s Day Gift? With the time to honor father’s right around the corner, we’re celebrating the dad’s in our practice, including Dr. Bachmann, who’s a father of two, and Dr. Fiala, who’s a father of four! Of course, we also celebrate mom every day, but for right now, we want to help you give dad a little TLC.

So, with that goal in mind, check out our Louetta Foot & Ankle Specialists Father’s Day Gift Guide. Guaranteed to pamper the special man in your life, while also protecting his feet, so he can stand strong with you for years to come.

For the Running Dad: Give the Father’s Day Gift of Comfort!

Athletic dad’s are always looking to sneak in runs whenever they can. And to help dad this year, give a father’s day gift by bringing him in for a pair of custom orthotics?

In our Spring and Tomball offices, we create orthotics, or shoe inserts, from a mold we create from your own feet. First, one of our doctors will take an impression of your foot. Next, our lab will scan that impression and creates the fully-customized orthotic. Of course, this gift won’t be a surprise, since you’ll have to bring dad to the office so we can customize his foot impression. But with all the benefits he’ll enjoy, we think it’s worth it.

Because, here’s the thing: the custom orthotics you get from Louetta Foot & Ankle will help control abnormal foot motion, provide stability, and correct injury-causing imbalances. They can relieve the foot pain of everything from heel spurs to bunions, shin splints, and so many other conditions. Basically, orthotics are a must for so many athletes; they can mean the difference between hitting those training goals or sitting down after that first mile. So if the dad in your life is working towards a 5K, or even just trying to make it around the block without stopping, the gift of orthotics could make all the difference for him.

Dr. Bachmann is a proud dad of two lovely daughters!

Pedicures: They Aren’t Just for the Ladies!

Here’s a fun fact you may not know: we offer manicures, pedicures and even those in-demand foot facials here at the Medi-Spa in our Spring, Tx location. If that sounds like something for mom, consider this: in addition to all the pampering services which men and women alike enjoy, we also offer the comfort and safety of a sterile, medical environment.

This means everyone, even our diabetic patients, can safely enjoy a nail trim, callous removal, cuticle care and even refloxology, without the fear of infection. Unfortunately, you can’t say the same when you enjoy spa services at traditional nail salons, where many providers fail to properly sterilize equipment, leaving you open to dangerous infections.

At our medi-spa, however, your experience is totally safe, and totally indulgent. We’re sure dad will appreciate a gift certificate to the medi-spa. Just ask Warren K., who recently shared: “Jamelda does an amazing job and we highly recommend her pedicures. A very pleasant and relaxing experience in a very clean and hygienic setting.”

Bonus Goodies to Wrap Up for Dad

When you want dad to have something to unwrap on Father’s day, we’ve still got you covered. Why not pick up some foot-pampering products in our office, and give them to dad on Sunday morning?

Here are some of our top suggestions:

Bio-freeze: We use Biofreeze as part of our in-office Fire and Ice pedicures, but you can also take this product home so dad can enjoy the soothing comfort on his feet and legs, anytime he wants!

Gel socks: Dad’s are notorious for their dry, cracked feet. Now, in our office, we can help get his dry, cracked heels back to their best form, but you can also pick up a pair of these super-comfy moisturizing socks to help dad’s feet feel their best in between visits.

Foot cream: If your dad was in heaven after his in-office pedicure, keep up the pampering by gifting him some pretty powerful foot cream. In our office, we love RevitaDERM, a “Physician Formulated” product  created to treat calloused, dry and cracked heels. This moisturizing foot cream contains 40% urea, giving it the callus-removing power and skin-reviving action to keep your dad’s heels and feet feeling silky smooth. This cream offers 6 hours of hydrating protection, and is safe for use on diabetic feet!


We hope we’ve offered you some great suggestions for pampering that special dad in your life this year. But here’s one more suggestion before we leave you. Too many men are notoriously bad about seeking help for their own health problems, including foot care. So if you know a dad who falls into that category, give him the most important gift possible: get him scheduled for a foot pain consult right away, so he can get back to walking comfortably!
