Diabetic Foot Care Management
Comfort Clinic offers a variety of diabetic foot care products to alleviate foot pain arising out of diabetic foot wound while following a comprehensive care plan for diabetic foot ulcer, wound, and pain. Diabetes can cause many foot pain complications as it disrupts the normal function of the vascular system, affecting many areas of the body, including legs and feet. Diabetic foot problems such as numbness, tingling or burning sensation, sharp pains, cramps, and increased sensitivity, develop from a combination of causes including poor circulation and neuropathy that can also cause deformities such as bunions, hammer toes, and Charcot’s feet. At Comfort Clinic, we provide top-notch foot care for diabetics patients by offering a comprehensive diabetic foot care program in which we continuously observe diabetic foot ulcer, wound, and other conditions and take necessary preventative diabetic foot care measures to reduce the risks of further complications.
Footwear and orthotics play an important role in foot care for diabetic patients. Our diabetic foot care specialists design custom orthotics to protect the diabetic foot and treat diabetic foot ulcers and wounds. These custom orthotic for diabetic feet will alleviate diabetic foot pain. These custom orthotics for diabetic feet are made of materials designed to provide comfort and protection needed in diabetic foot care. At Comfort Clinic we have expertise in providing best diabetic foot care services. We also offer shoes for diabetic foot care which has high and wide toe box, removable insoles for fitting flexibility and option to insert orthotics if necessary, padded inside of the shoe for blister prevention and firm heel counters for extra support and stability. Proper shoes for diabetic feet can help you be more active and maintain a high quality of life.
Diabetes often leads to peripheral vascular disease that inhibits a person’s blood circulation. Poor circulation in the lower part of the legs and feet contributes to foot, skin and tissue problems, swelling and dryness of the foot and causing injuries to heal poorly. Working closely with your physician, we prepare a personalized foot care program for diabetic patients, based on medical history, signs, symptoms, and results obtained from imaging procedures to help with the healing process. Our diabetic foot care specialists recommend diabetic foot care treatments and diabetic foot care products that can prevent reoccurring ulcers, infections and other serious diabetic feet conditions.
We also give diabetic foot care education to our clients in a bid to know let them know how to take care of diabetic foot problems. Comfort Clinic has a large selection of compression garments to aid poor circulation, silver liners and other products combined with therapeutic benefits of silver, which provide antimicrobial, odor reduction, thermal dynamic, and anti-static attributes.
