Diabetes

Diabetes can lead to foot problems because of restricted blood flow and nerve damage. When nerves are damaged through diabetes this is referred to as neuropathy. When the muscles in the foot no longer function together properly this can cause unequal pressure on the foot. Unequal pressure can result in sores, infections, and even amputation in extreme cases. Proper footwear can help prevent foot problems related to diabetes.

Diabetes can affect the function of the lower limbs. Physical therapy services can provide treatment to relieve pain and improve whatever condition you’re suffering from.

The team at Reddy-Care Physical Therapy has physical therapy treatments that can assist diabetes patients. If you or a loved one has diabetes, please contact us at Great Neck & Farmingdale, NY centers today.
