Active Feet Need Active Care...
If you lead an active lifestyle then you know how fragile your feet can be. After long hours of pounding them into the ground over and over again by running, jogging, sprinting, or jumping, all the wear and tear can finally take its toll. Ending up with a foot injury is not fun and that is why there are specialists out there to help you treat those injuries. These foot doctors, or podiatrists, are familiar with all kinds of different foot and ankle injuries and can help you know what to do to recover quickly. Dr. Edward R. Cohen is a board certified podiatrist with years of experience.
Diabetic Feet Need Special Care...
The foot is especially affected by diabetes because:
* diabetes damages the nerves (damage can occur to the foot and not be detected)
* diabetes also affect the circulation. Poor circulation can affect the ability of the body to heal when damage occurs.
* those with diabetes are more prone to infection - the body's processes that normally fight infection respond slower and often have trouble getting to infections due to the poor circulation.
* diabetes can also affect the joints, making them stiffer
