Diabetic Foot Care

How does diabetes affect your feet?

Diabetes poses serious risks and complications to your feet. Damaged nerves, infections and poor blood circulation can result in foot ulcers or amputations. You can arrange an appointment at Craig Hughes Podiatry to learn how to properly check and care for your feet.

General Foot Care

When should you see a podiatrist?

Before your minor foot condition becomes a major one, book an appointment today. A podiatrist is trained to treat issues such as athlete’s foot, ingrown and fungal toenails, corns, callouses, blisters and warts.

Orthotics

What are orthotics?

Orthotics are most often custom made for the individual to achieve a goal such as added arch support or joint realignment. The insert can be fitted inside the shoe of anyone from high impact athletes to seniors. For at-risk patients with diabetes, orthotics are also known to prevent foot ulcers. At Craig Hughes Podiatry, we custom manufacture orthotics and stock brands including Formorthotics.
