Diabetic Foot Care Diabetic Foot Care

Individuals with diabetes much be vigilant about their foot care. Why? Diabetes can cause people to have poor circulation and nerve damage. The nerve damage prevents the person from feeling a wound when she gets hurt, and the poor circulation prevents that wound from healing in a timely fashion. Sol Foot & Ankle Centers regularly helps individuals with diabetes; we treat people who are already suffering from foot conditions, as well as those who simply want to take preventative action through the use of orthotics or other measures.
