wound care

Wound care is quite important, especially for individuals with diabetes. Even seemingly minor wounds can escalate into severe foot issues if not properly treated. Diabetes often leads to neuropathy, causing reduced sensation in the feet. This lack of feeling increases the risk of unnoticed wounds.

Factors like tight shoes or small debris in footwear can trigger wounds that worsen over time. We recommend regular foot checks, proper hygiene, comfortable footwear, and nail care as preventive measures. Our office offers professional guidance, tailored treatment plans, and can help prevent complications, particularly vital for diabetic patients.

Our office provides a range of wound care services:

  • Diabetic foot screenings for early detection of issues.
  • Guidance on proper footwear to prevent wounds.
  • Monitoring for potential complications like infections.
  • Specialized knowledge in diabetic foot care.
  • Access to advanced wound care techniques.
  • Customized treatment plans based on individual needs.

Typical Causes of Foot Wounds:

  • Diabetic neuropathy causing reduced sensation and vulnerability to injuries
  • Injury from sharp objects or rough surfaces
  • Corns and calluses leading to skin breakdown
  • Athlete's foot or other fungal infections weakening the skin
  • Poor circulation resulting in slow wound healing
  • Pressure ulcers from prolonged periods of immobility or pressure on specific areas
  • Burns or frostbite
  • Trauma from sports activities or accidents
