Wound Care

These open sores, ulcers, or wounds are common in people who have issues with the circulation of the legs and feet and should be carefully treated and monitored by a podiatrist to avoid further very serious complications with life altering consequences. Poorly fitted shoes, or something as trivial as a stocking seam, can create a wound that may not be felt by people with Diabetes or PVD due to a decrease in skin sensations of the foot and ankle.
