Diabetic Footcare

Having diabetes can cause damage to the nerve in your feet, blood circulation and infection. It also increases your risk of foot ulcers and amputations.

At Gentle Podiatry, we use the latest technology and evidence-based guidelines foot assessments:

  • Neurological Assessment (nerves)
  • Vascular Assessment (circulation)
  • Plantar Pressure Assessment (pressure area)
  • Footwear Assessment
  • Footcare Education

If you have diabetes or have concerns about your feet, a foot assessment at Gentle Podiatry can assist in discovering and preventing any foot problems.
