Podiatrists treat a variety of
different diseases, disorders and injuries. Our doctors specialize in providing
diabetic foot care. There are several medical techniques used to
treat these various diseases. Treatment can include things like
medication, surgery and physical therapies. We can also fit
corrective shoe inserts which are called orthotics as well as
design custom shoes to provide diabetic foot care.
Podiatrists use several different tools to create orthotics and other methods for diabetic foot care. They use a tool called a force plate or scanner to design orthotics. A patient must walk along a plate that is connected to computers that measure different parts of the foot as well as weight distribution and pressure points.
There are a few key indicators that may hint towards diabetic foot pain. Should you experience numbness or reduced ability to feel pain or temperature change, a burning or tingling sensation, sharp pains, and muscle weakness, give us a call. We will assist you if you need diabetic foot care.
In order to get an accurate diagnosis, we might also order x-rays and lab tests. The foot can be a good indicator for other diseases and disorders like arthritis, diabetes and even heart disease. A diabetic patient will be more prone to things like foot ulcers and infections due to poor circulation. This is commonly referred to as diabetic foot. In these cases, a doctor will consult with other doctors to investigate these symptoms further.
