We strive to provide our community with education on foot and ankle wellness. You can find us at many local festivals, races, fundraisers, and other events each year.

Diabetes may cause nerve damage, also called diabetic neuropathy, which takes away the feeling in your feet. Diabetes may also reduce blood flow to the feet, making it harder to heal an injury or fight infection. Because of these problems, you may not notice a blister or a sore on your foot. This could lead to an infection or a non healing wound that could put you at risk for an amputation. It is important to check your feet every day and to schedule regular diabetic foot exams.
Recommended guidelines include seeing a podiatrist on a regular basis. We can determine if you are at high risk for developing a foot ulcer and implement strategies for prevention.
