According to the American Diabetes Association, 60 to 70 percent of people with diabetes will develop neuropathy within their lifetime. Peripheral neuropathy is damage to the nerves in your hands and feet. Your Waxahachie foot specialists are experts in treating peripheral neuropathy in the feet.
When the nerves in the feet are damaged, they don’t function properly and can send the wrong signals to the brain. If you have peripheral neuropathy, you know that living with the pain of peripheral neuropathy can be felt day or night. You also know the contradiction between having numbness in the feet, followed by the severe pain.
Peripheral neuropathy is often associated with diabetes but can also occur with a vitamin B12 deficiency, alcoholism, kidney disease, or no apparent cause at all. The good news? Our highly-experienced podiatrists offer award-winning nerve-related care in Waxahachie, TX.
When to Visit Your Waxahachie Podiatrists
If you have previously been diagnosed with neuropathy, you need to see our podiatrists. If you have symptoms such as numbness and tingling in your feet or burning sensation in your toes at night while trying to sleep, you should be evaluated for neuropathy.
Treatment depends first on what is causing the neuropathy. Any systemic cause such as kidney disease, dabetes, or pinched nerves need to be addressed and controlled. Our goal of treatment are to slow the progression of the neuropathy, decrease pain and increase feeling, if possible. We want to improve your quality of life.
Your podiatrist may prescribe treatments or medicines to help with the pain and discomfort of neuropathy. We will perform a complete foot examination and educate you how to do the same. Your podiatrist will also show you how to take care of your feet at home. People who have peripheral neuropathy should have their feet examined by a podiatrist at a minimum yearly.
If you also have neuropathy, your Waxahachie podiatrist will work closely with you and your primary care doctor to ensure that you are getting complete care. At Family Foot & Ankle Centers, we are improving lives one foot at a time.
