Neurological and Vascular Assessment at We Fix Feet Podiatry

Importance of Annual Foot Assessment

Patients with diabetes and various health conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, vascular disease, kidney disease, and neurological conditions, benefit significantly from annual foot assessments. This proactive approach aims to detect early signs of change, provide guidance on foot management, and plan ongoing care to prevent potential foot problems.

1. Broad Spectrum of Beneficiaries

Beyond diabetes, individuals with rheumatoid arthritis, poor circulation, kidney disease, and neurological conditions find value in this specialised assessment. Regular podiatry appointments become a crucial component in maintaining overall foot health and addressing specific concerns.

2. Comprehensive Foot Assessment

Our Podiatrists conduct a thorough foot assessment encompassing various dimensions. This includes a general health assessment, consideration of medication and risk factors, evaluation of overall foot health and mobility, as well as an assessment of vision and the individual's ability to self-care.

3. Circulatory Health Check

A vital component of the assessment involves a circulatory check. Our Podiatrist examines foot and leg pulses, utilising a doppler to listen for any abnormalities. Ankle and toe pressures may also be measured if deemed necessary, ensuring a comprehensive evaluation of circulatory health.

4. Neurological Evaluation

Neurological assessments focus on reflex testing and the individual's ability to perceive light touch, vibration, and differentiate between blunt and sharp sensations in the feet. This evaluation is crucial in determining if there's any loss of sensation and assessing the individual's ability to protect their feet from potential damage.

5. Personalised Education and Treatment Planning

Post-assessment, our Podiatrist provides personalised education and advice, tailored to the individual's specific needs. Collaboratively, a treatment plan is formulated to proactively prevent foot problems. With patient consent, this information is shared with the general practitioner to ensure comprehensive and coordinated care.

If you have Diabetes or think you would benefit from a neurological and vascular assessment of your feet, please fill in your contact details, email us, or telephone one of our Podiatrists for an informal chat.
