Caring for your feet
Prompt diagnosis, early intervention and prevention are essential to help keep you active and on your feet. Our podiatrist (a doctor who specializes in caring for the feet) can teach you how to care for your feet and watch for warning signs of problems, and how to avoid injuries. If you have vision loss, we can teach you special techniques so that you can check your feet yourself.
If you have diabetes, it is especially important that you pay special attention to your feet. You may not be able to feel or see injuries as well as you should, and cuts may take longer to heal. The podiatrist is an important part of your diabetes healthcare team.
