Diabetic Foot Assessments at Step Right Health

The Importance of Specialized Care

People with diabetes need specialized foot care due to an increased likelihood of complications such as nerve damage, poor blood circulation, and heightened susceptibility to infections. A minor injury can escalate into a severe problem if not adequately addressed. Therefore, periodic assessments are crucial for anyone living with diabetes.

What Does the Assessment Include?

Our diabetic foot assessments are exhaustive, utilizing a variety of advanced
diagnostic tools to evaluate your condition:

Nerve Function Tests

These tests determine the integrity of the nerves in your feet, identifying areas of diminished sensation that are more susceptible to unnoticed injuries.

Blood Flow Analysis

Utilizing Doppler ultrasound and other non-invasive tests, we measure blood flow to the feet, identifying areas of reduced circulation that may compromise healing..

Ulcer Risk Inspection

A detailed examination is conducted to identify any early signs of ulcers or other skin conditions that require immediate attention.
