Those who suffer from diabetes are at risk for a good deal of foot conditions and problems. It’s important that diabetics take care of their feet, and part of that involves selecting the proper footwear. Specially-designed footwear is created to protect the sensitive feet of diabetics. These shoes will offer the roominess that diabetics need to prevent ulcers and infections, take the pressure off of sensitive areas, as well as provide a great deal more stability than many other shoes on the market.
People with diabetes can choose custom-made, orthopedic footwear that is specific to their individual needs, or can select shoes designed specifically with the diabetic in mind. The doctors at Ankle & Foot Associates are knowledgeable about the different types of footwear available and can help patients select a shoe that fits properly and offers all the support they need.
