The ankle and foot problems associated with this debilitating disease can easily be treated by our experienced and qualified chiropodists / foot care specialists by teaching you how to ensure that no extraneous trauma occurs to your lower extremities, prevent and treat poor blood circulation, eat a healthy diet, abstain from alcohol consumption and smoking, and check your lower extremities for irritations & lesions on a daily basis. If necessary, we will ensure that you are fitted with high quality orthopedic shoes, pediatric orthotics, custom orthotics or sports orthotics.

  • Numbness, tingling or burning sensation (diabetic peripheral neuropathy)
  • Sore development
  • Skin breakdown
  • Recurring or frequent infections
  • Muscle weakness
  • Slow healing blisters, cuts, scrapes & bruises
  • Difficulty walking or balancing
  • Sweat secretion & oil production impairment
