Is your foot red, swollen, warm, and sore? If so, you might have Charcot foot, and Dr. Stuart Feldman has a way of helping you!
Charcot foot is a condition that develops because you have significant nerve damage. Your bones are weakening and can soon become fractured. If you continue walking on your Charcot foot, your foot can break and change its shape, and the joints will later collapse, giving you a rocker-bottom appearance.
If you think you have Charcot foot, please contact Dr. Stuart Feldman as soon as you can. This is a serious condition that could lead to disability, deformity, and the chance of amputation. You also need to be aware of this condition if you have diabetes.
This foot concern has a way of numbing any pain (because of the damaged nerves), and it allows you to continue walking without pain. This makes the injury worse all while numbing you from trauma, temperature, and pain. The best way to prevent this worsened stage is detecting the condition while it is in its early stages. This gives your podiatrist the chance to map out a treatment plan for you that will lead you to a healthy and strong life.
