Charcot Foot Information from New Berlin Diabetic Foot Experts

If you are a diabetic, it is crucial that you are fully aware of the signs and symptoms of Charcot foot. Our New Berlin, WI podiatrists cannot state enough the importance of early detection and treatment. Chances of successful treatment decrease as time between the initial injury and treatment increase. The longer you wait to get help, the more damage you will do to your foot.
 
What is Charcot Foot?

Charcot foot is a condition most often seen in those who have little to no feeling in their feet due to nerve damage caused by diabetes. The bones in the foot begin to soften and, in a short amount of time, can become weak enough to break easily.

With little feeling in the foot, those with Charcot foot may do further damage by walking on a broken foot. This causes severe damage to the structure of the foot and may forever alter its shape. In cases where the foot has been untreated for some time, surgery may be necessary. 
 
Signs and Symptoms of Charcot Foot

If you have any of the following signs or symptoms of Charcot foot, our New Berlin, WI diabetic foot experts ask that you be seen without delay. In this case, safe is better than sorry. The most common symptoms of Charcot foot include:

  • A foot that is warm to the touch  (feeling warmer than the other foot)
  • Pain or soreness in the foot (this may be limited, so note any unusual discomfort)
  • Redness in the foot (either the entire foot or one area)
  • Swelling in the foot (usually under the foot but could be located anywhere)
  • Collapsed arch
  • Bones pushing on the skin, causing a deformation of the foot
  • Ulcers on the foot

We must stress again that, if you are at all suspicious that you are suffering from the effects of Charcot foot, you be seen immediately by an experienced New Berlin, WI foot doctor. Our podiatrists will be able to quickly diagnose the problem and craft a personalized treatment plan.
