DIABETIC FOOT ASSESSMENT

Physiotherapy

 

If you or a loved one are living with diabetes, you're likely aware of the importance of managing your blood sugar levels and maintaining overall health. However, one aspect of diabetic care that is often overlooked is the health of one's feet. 


Diabetes can have serious implications for foot health due to its effects on circulation, nerve function, and wound healing. High blood sugar levels can damage nerves (neuropathy) and blood vessels (peripheral vascular disease), leading to reduced sensation, poor circulation, and an increased risk of foot ulcers and infections.

Regular foot assessments can help detect potential issues such as nerve damage, circulation problems, foot deformities, and skin changes before they progress into more serious complications. By identifying risk factors and addressing them early, we can help prevent the development of foot ulcers, which are a common complication of diabetes and a leading cause of lower limb amputations.


At our clinic, we understand that every patient's needs are unique. Following a comprehensive foot assessment, we can develop personalized care plans tailored to your specific risk factors, lifestyle, and foot health goals. Our team is dedicated to empowering patients with diabetes to take control of their foot health. We provide valuable education on proper foot care techniques, footwear selection, wound management, and lifestyle modifications to reduce the risk of complications.
