Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy is damage or disease that can impair sensation or movement in the feet. There are several different types of neuropathy some related to injury or traumas others due to systemic diseases such as diabetes and can be due to medications, surgery or treatments such as chemotherapy.

There are a range of genetic diseases and inflammatory diseases that can cause neuropathy also. Podiatrists are trained to assess neurological status in the feet and will monitor conditions such as diabetes closely and can help diagnose the cause of other neuropathies that present to the clinic.

Advice on self management and footwear is an important part of how your podiatrist will manage your feet if neuropathy is present. Many complications can arise in the feet as a result of neuropathy and regular Podiatric care is recommended.
