Protecting diabetic foot health to ease your fears
We are highly trained and have years of experience managing diabetic foot health. When you have diabetes, high blood sugar can cause poor circulation, and this leads to complications such as infections, foot ulcers, and other diabetic foot damage.
In order to protect your feet from diabetic complications, you need an experienced podiatrist on your diabetic care team. That’s why we invite you to explore our diabetic foot health options at our Spring and Tomball, TX podiatry practice.
Monitoring Diabetic Foot Health
When you’re living with diabetes, you need to perform daily foot checks at home. This will help you spot any changes that could be problematic. While these home foot exams are important, they aren’t enough.
That’s why you also need to see your podiatrist four times a year, for a diabetic foot exam. And here at Louetta Foot & Ankle, we use the latest technology when you come in for your foot exams. We have a state-of-the-art, computerized sensory test that detects nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy) in its earliest stages. Because we can spot problems quickly, we can help prevent foot damage. And that means fewer ulcers and a lower risk for amputations.
Painful Diabetic Feet
If you notice problems between your quarterly diabetic podiatrist visits, we want to see you right away. One problem to watch for with diabetic foot health is nerve damage. You’d notice signs of a problem if your feet are numb, painful or tingly. All of these nerve damage symptoms are signs of peripheral neuropathy.
You may have heard there’s no treatment for this condition. But in our office, we can relieve your nerve pain with a proven technique called peripheral nerve decompression. This revolutionary procedure restores function to nerves that are swollen and have become compressed.
Dr. Brad Bachmann was among the first group of surgeons in America to learn this advanced procedure and is one of only five surgeons in the Houston area trained to perform it. So if you’re looking for relief from neuropathy pain, come see our highly trained Texas neuropathy specialists. Pain relief for diabetic foot health could be just an office visit away!Contact Us Today
