Pain in diabetic foot is for to many causes.

Heel pain is something we often hear from our patients. It can occur at the bottom, back, front or along the sides of the heel.
. The most common cause of heel pain is PLANTAR FASCITIS. This condition may be due to abnormalities in walking pattern that causes too much stress on the heel bone like walking, running or jumping on hard surfaces, prolonged people of standing,wearing wrong foot wear, obesity etc.

All foot pain patients need further evaluation by the foot specialist to rule out any major problems in the foot say like CELLULITIS,
NECROTIZING FASCITIS,
ABSCESS,
CHARCOT FOOT or
OBSTRUCTION OF BLOOD FLOW TO THE FEET(ISCHEMIA).

Treatment is treating the cause.
The podiatric surgeon first examine your foot and may order for investigations like x Ray.. Sometimes MRI to find out the cause .
You must keep your blood sugar level within the target range.
Over-the-counter medicines may help alleviate mild to moderate pain.
Topical ointments, sprays and over the counter medications.

  • Rest your feet by staying away from work
  • Use an ice pack to reduce swelling, pain, and inflammation
  • Try some stretching exercises that reduce pain in nerves and make it feel better.
  • Use shoes that support the arch of your foot with Customized inserts .
