Diabetic Foot Treatment
Age can be a major factor in relationship to the state and health of the body’s tissues. Often seen as a negative impact to mobility, independence and your lifestyle.
At AMA Podiatry our podiatrists are experienced and skilled in diabetic foot care treatment. We fully understand the mechanism that lead to complications. All patients undergo ongoing thorough assessments to investigate and identify any risk factors relating to any neurovascular problems.
This allows the early detection of changes bought about by diabetes and develop a treatment plan. High risk patients are assessed every six months.
Our treatments cover nail care, removal of corns and callous, wound assessment and management, foot massage and foot wear advice.
Diabetes can bring about changes that effect your feet in many ways. Including:
- Vascular change
- Skin change and ulcers
- Nail and infections
- Gait and walking patterns

We have a dedicated room with full computer aided gait analysis system, for early detection of pressure point problems of the feet.
