When you’re struggling with foot pain, your daily activities aren’t the only thing that can be impacted; your quality of life can start to suffer, too. Amy had been dealing with severe peripheral neuropathy and pain in her right foot, limiting her weight-baring abilities for the last 10 years. This condition, which is the result of nerve damage often caused by diabetes, a traumatic injury or an infection, causes sever pain. It is often described as a burning, stabbing or tingling sensation. What makes the condition challenging is the loss of sensation or feeling in your lower extremities. You may not be able to feel if you suffer an injury, get burned or develop a sore. If left untreated, these complications could lead to major infections and the need for amputation.
After two unsuccessful surgeries with other practices to heal her neruopathy and even having hardware placed, Amy came to see Dr. Kyle Kinmon at Certified Foot and Ankle Specialists to finally get some relief. Dr. Kinmon diagnosed Amy’s condition and came up with a treatment plan to quickly and effectively rid or reduce her discomfort. After successfully treating the patient’s condition, Amy has regained her life. She can now walk without pain.
