DIABETIC FOOT CARE
If you have diabetes you must have your feet evaluated by our expertise.
Diabetics are prone to poor circulation and impaired nerve function in their feet. Due to poor circulation or lack of sensation, 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 peripheral neuropathy. Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can be a pain, numbness, tingling and burning sensation in your feet.
We recommend that you come in for comprehensive diabetic foot evaluation. We will use the latest technology to test and assess the circulation to your feet. Once the evaluation is complete, our experts will design a treatment plan specifically for you.
WOUND CARE & FOOT ULCERS
Having an open wound increases 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 us, KIMS Podiatric Care, we 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.
SHOES & ORTHOTICS
Orthotics are clinically proven to treat a wide variety of orthopedic problems including lower back pain, knee pain, ankle pain and foot pain.
If you're a diabetic or have a non-healing wound on your foot, ankle or leg contact our podiatry practice, so that we can provide you with the care you'll need to minimize possible complications.
