“An Ounce Of Prevention Is Worth A Pound Of The Cure.” – Benjamin Franklin

Foot & Ankle Pain Relief For Diabetics From Experienced Podiatrists in Wauwatosa, Oak Creek, New Berlin & Mequon, WI

While this saying applies to many situations in life, we often think of it when we advise our diabetic patients. As New Berlin, WI podiatrists who specialize in diabetic foot care, we take the treatment of your diabetic feet very seriously. The sooner you come to us with a concern, the sooner we can address it and help you work toward optimal foot health.

Regular Checkups At The Podiatrist Are a Must For Diabetics

In addition to seeing a Milwaukee podiatrist when issues arise, we highly recommend that you be seen at least four times a year. Being seen this often allows your foot specialist in Wisconsin to get to know your unique feet and spot any potential issues before they become a problem.

A podiatrist experienced in diabetic foot care will thoroughly examine your feet at each appointment, noting any changes in their condition and implementing a customized treatment plan designed specifically for your feet and circumstances. Even if you have not noticed any changes, please ensure that you are seen by your podiatrist on a regular basis. Prevention is the key to avoiding foot problems related to diabetes.

The Most Common Diabetes-Related Foot Issues

The biggest threat to the health of your feet if you have diabetes is allowing a small problem to become a big one. This is why we stress that your minor foot problem may be more serious than you might think. For many diabetics, the nerves of the feet do not function properly. This causes a loss of feeling in your feet. Because of the lack of feeling and possible poor blood flow, a common foot ailment like a cut or blister can become infected.

Our Milwaukee, WI diabetic foot specialists would like you to come in for an appointment to any of our four podiatry offices in Wisconsin if you see or suspect any of the following foot issues:

When searching for a podiatrist in Milwaukee to treat your feet, be sure to look for a podiatrist who specializes in the care of diabetic feet. You should only consider podiatrists who have successfully treated numerous patients with diabetes and who take the time to get to know you and your feet.

If you are at all concerned about the health of your feet, or if you would like to be seen on a regular basis to keep your feet healthy, contact Milwaukee Foot & Ankle Specialists at 414.257.0676 to make your first appointment.
