DIABETIC FOOT CARE

Regular Checkups Are a Must For Diabetics

Diabetics are prone to poor circulation, have a weakened immune system and impaired nerve function in their feet. Due to poor circulation or lack of sensation after poor circulation, diabetic feet are more susceptible to developing sores, and non-healing wounds which may lead to ulcers. These wounds can also develop into serious infections which can lead to amputations, loss of limbs and even loss of life.

With diabetes, you also have a good chance of developing neuropathy. Symptoms of neuropathy can be pain, numbness, tingling and burning sensation in your feet. Our Podiatrists recommend that you come in for a comprehensive diabetic foot evaluation.

Blackwood Clementon Foot Specialists will use the latest technology to test and assess the circulation to your feet, and determine if you have peripheral neuropathy. Once the evaluation is complete, our Podiatrists will design a treatment plan specifically for you.

If you're a diabetic, reach out and make an appointment today so that our medical team can provide you with the care you'll need to minimize possible complications.

Having an open wound, increase the chances of infection.

If you have a non healing wound on your lower extremity, it is essential that you act to get it healed as quickly as possible to prevent infection and further complications. If you have diabetes, you are especially at risk for complications. The sooner a wound is treated the greater the patient's chances are of healing.

When you first come to our practice, Blackwood Clementon Foot Specialists, will use the latest technology to perform a comprehensive neurologic, vascular and orthopedic exam. Once the wounds are healed, patients are regularly followed up to help avoid future problems.

If you have a non-healing wound on your foot, ankle or leg and especially if you're diabetic, contact us for help today.
