Do you have diabetes?
Have you been feeling a bit unbalanced?
Maybe some tingling and burning in your toes?
Don't worry! Step Relief Podiatry can help!
Diabetes can have a huge effect on your feet. Firstly it reduces blood supply to feet, which reduces your healing potential and increases risk of infection. Secondly, it affects your nerves and can cause loss of sensation to feet.
The Diabetes assessment we conduct at Step Relief tests the sensory and motor nerves to your feet as well as blood supply. By doing this, we can map out and record progression or deterioration that is caused by diabetes. Additionally, we provide education about how to prevent any complications arising from diabetes and the signs to look for.
