Proper footwear is an important part of an overall treatment program for people with diabetes, even for the newly diagnosed. If there is any evidence of neuropathy, or lack of sensation, wearing the right footwear is crucial. Diabetic footwear reduces pressure on your feet, prevents undue friction, and protects you from serious diabetic foot complications.
Any area where there is excessive pressure on the foot can lead to can lead to corns, calluses, and infections. Our footwear helps to relieve these high-pressure areas and therefore reduce the occurrence of related problems.
Deformities resulting from conditions such as Charcot involvement, loss of fatty tissue, hammer toes and amputations must be accommodated. Many deformities need to be stabilized to relieve pain and avoid further destruction. In addition, some deformities may need to be controlled or supported to decrease progression of the deformity.
Our footwear reduces the overall amount of vertical pressure, or shock, on the bottom of the foot as well as a reduction of horizontal movement of the foot within the shoe, or shear.
Limiting the motion of certain joints in the foot can often decrease inflammation, relieve pain, and result in a more stable and functional foot while giving protection to your toes and toe ball.
