Diabetic Foot Care
Why do diabetics need foot care?
The main 2 issues diabetics face in relation to their feet are peripheral vascular disease and diabetic neuropathy. Diabetes inhibits good blood flow. Even the tiniest scratch on your foot can take weeks to heal without proper blood circulation. If not treated appropriately, cuts can turn into sores, ulcers, or even gangrene. Smokers are particularly susceptible to peripheral vascular disease.
Don’t risk your quality of life. If you are diabetic, have your feet checked by Craig Hughes Podiatry on a regular basis.
Why use orthotics in shoes?
From your head to your toes, everything is connected. That niggling lower back pain you’ve been experiencing may actually be the result of undiagnosed plantar fasciitis (heel pain). No matter what you use them for, orthotic insoles are applicable to every shoe, especially the semi-mouldable designs by Formorthotics.
During a consultation with Craig, you will learn how shin splints, knee pain, postural issues and more, are all related to how your feet and body align. Regain foot function and potentially alleviate pain by booking an orthotics consultation at Craig Hughes Podiatry in Mount Hutton, or at Lake Road Medical Centre in Elermore Vale.
