Treatment for Diabetic foot care

An estimated 3.8 million people in the UK are affected by type 1 or 2 diabetes. Factors including nerve damage and foot deformity increase the risk of mechanical trauma to the diabetic foot, while vascular disease and high blood sugar levels reduce the tissue’s ability to heal. By altering pressures applied to the foot, foot orthoses, therapeutic footwear and other orthotic devices protect at-risk feet and facilitate healing.
