Diabetic Foot Assessment

Rates of diabetes continue to rise and as such diabetic patients need to be more vigilant than ever to ensure the condition is properly managed. Diabetes can particularly affect the feet and can lead to the development of ulcers that in turn can lead to much more serious complications. Due to this risk, it’s vitally important that diabetic patients regularly see a professional chiropodist to ensure the health of their feet.
Patricia Barnett Foot Care Clinic Ltd. can offer diabetic patients expert advice on ulcer preventative measures, foot screening, footwear recommendations and a range of further treatments tailored specifically to the needs of the diabetic patient. We also provide Doppler Ultrasound Assessments of the lower limb to check the circulation status of the legs where needed.

Biomechanical and Gait Analysis:

Biomechanics and gait assessment is an examination procedure concerned with the lower limbs. The procedure looks at muscle strength, alignment, the range of joint motion, muscle function and joint function; with a focus on how the foot, knees, hips, pelvis and back interact with each other. Pain in one region may be because of weakness elsewhere and as such it’s important to examine the body as a whole.
Abnormal walking patterns can be the cause of postural problems and may cause pain in everything from foot, ankle, knee, hip, back and in some cases even neck pain.
After a biomechanics assessment, a range of treatment options can be implemented including orthotic therapy, footwear advice, flexibility and strength advice including advice on changing current activity.
Normally, a Biomechanical assessment will last about an hour and may include a scan for custom fitted orthotics.

General Podiatry (chiropody)

A routine podiatry appointment will include the removal of hard skin and corns, nail trimming and if necessary nail thinning. An appointment will also include the conservative treatment of ingrown toenails.

Diabetes Foot Screening:

Although it’s often overlooked, foot care is vitally important for diabetic patients. A foot screening for a diabetic patient involves the assessing of the vascular and neurological state of the foot e.g. the assessment of blood flow and nerve sensation.
Podiatrists also look at any deformities and any red flag issues that may lead to ulcers or even amputations.
General podiatry treatments are often included in a diabetic foot screening appointment.
