Over 50% of all lower limb amputations are due to improperly fit shoes. The commonly overlooked callus is a major concern for any person suffering from the effects of diabetes. Constant numbness & possible burning sensations cause these calluses to progress into ulcerations. This is extremely common due to the effects of neuropathy. Neuropathy causes the nerves to lose their ability to tell the brain what is being senced in the feet. This give the ability for a common callus to go unmonitored and progress into a sore. This is similar to that of a pressure sore. Continued pressure and friction against the skin results in first a callus and commonly an ulceration due to the inablilty to feel and possibly inspect their feet on a daily basis.
Corey's Bootery has extensive knowledge in the diabetic foot and the implications that diabetes is known to cause in the lower extremities. Corey's Bootery's Certified Pedorthist's inspect each patients foot to look for these problems, and aid in the treatment and prevention of these possible ulcerationns.
