Diabetic Foot Care
If you have diabetes, it is imperative that you take good care of your feet. Part of that care is visiting a podiatrist who can give you a regime of preventive techniques. These techniques can save your feet and eliminate pain. We perform neurovascular foot assessments with Doppler ultrasound and DND peripheral neuropathy screening units. They can detect damage to the nerves of the feet. If you have nerve damage, you may not be able to feel your feet normally and you may also be unable to sense the position of your feet and toes while walking and balancing, which can cause even more harm to your feet.
Remember, prevention is the key to saving your feet and eliminating pain. You can avoid serious problems such as losing a toe, foot, or leg by following proper prevention techniques offered by your podiatrist. Make an appointment today.
