Aged and Diabetes Care
Chronic ailments like arthritis and diabetes often affect the joints of the foot, ankle and lower limbs. We can check and monitor any degenerative changes with these conditions, especially for older people. What doctors may describe as ‘circulatory pathology’ or ‘peripheral neuropathies’ may lead to nail and skin lesions as well as ulcers and deformity of the feet.
We make our diagnosis based on specific assessment including:
- Monitoring circulation and checking the nerves
- Performing motor and sensory tests
Functional orthotics can help to alleviate the symptoms of these conditions. We are able to provide you with these, to relieve pain and manage the problem.
