One of the most important aspects of diabetic foot care involves inspecting your lower extremities every day for any cuts, sores, bruises, swelling or hot spots. Any of these symptoms could be signs of an underlying problem developing.
A lot of us dread going to the doctor, no matter the kind. We put off going to the dentist, getting a check-up and everything else in between for as long as we possibly can, but in the end, we are just doing more harm to ourselves.
At Certified Foot and Ankle Specialists, we’ve made it our mission to get patients back on their feet as quickly and safely as possible. Our entire staff from our receptionists to our podiatrists understand just how important the health and function of your lower extremities are, and we work continuously to provide our patients with individualized care and specialized attention for all their foot and ankle conditions.
Sculptra Injections are available for patients who have pain in the ball of the foot where there are bony prominences and/or recurrent calluses. The injectable liquid is used to add volume to areas of the body to create a soft, natural cushion. Sculptra is very safe and, in 2009, received full FDA approval for cosmetic use in the United States.
