Diabetic Footcare

Diabetic Footcare

Our Services
Diabetic footcare is essential as having diabetes can be dangerous for your feet—even a small cut can produce serious consequences. Diabetes may cause nerve damage that takes away the feeling in your feet. Diabetes may also reduce blood flow to the feet, making it harder to heal an injury or resist infection. Because of these problems, you may not notice a foreign object in your shoe. As a result, you could develop a blister or a sore. This could lead to an infection or a nonhealing wound that could put you at risk for an amputation. Everyone who has diabetes should have their feet checked regularly with a podiatrist, and at the very least once a year at their annual review. DIABETIC FOOT HEALTH ASSESSMENT At Feet Street Podiatry, your…

What causes heel pain?

Advice
The heel (also called the calcaneus) is the largest bone within the foot and is often prone to injury due to overuse.  Depending on the severity of the condition, heel pain may range from mild to disabling.  There are many causes of heel pain, such as by trauma, inflammation, or a systemic disease such as rheumatoid arthritis.  This post highlights a common condition that leads to heel pain – plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis Plantar fasciitis refers to inflammation of the plantar fascia - a thick fibrous band that connects the heel to the front of the foot.  The plantar fascia supports the arch of the foot and absorbs pressure.
