People that have problems with diabetes are more likely to have problems with their feet because of poor blood flow to their lower extremities. They also often have nerve damage, which prevents them from being able to properly feel injuries to their feet.
Because of this, if you have diabetes, and you hurt your foot, you may not feel the injury, and from there it can get severely infected due to a lack of proper blood flow, and then it spirals downhill from there.
Many foot and ankle conditions can come from diabetes. Schedule your consultation with us so that we can sit down with you and determine what the exact cause may be.
You don’t want surgery, and we don’t want to have to perform surgery, so call us as soon as possible so that we can help you take a step in the right direction.
