Do I need Foot Care?

Medical complications from diabetes and poor circulation can reduce blood flow and sensation to the feet as well as lead to fragile skin and brittle nails.

 

Additionally, anyone who has limited range of motion due to arthritis or joint injury or surgery, may find managing their own foot care difficult. These complications can put the individual at high risk for foot injury and should have a medical professional manage their foot care.
