Foot care for Diabetics at Elio’s | Niagara’s Total Foot Care Clinic
One in four Canadians with diabetes will develop potentially serious foot problems related to the disease. However, proper orthopedic footwear from Elio’s can help diabetic patients avoid unnecessary complications.
Diabetic footwear is commonly known as extra depth or therapeutic shoes. The specially designed shoes are made to reduce the risk of skin breakdown in diabetics with co-existing foot disease. People with decreased feeling in their feet may have a false sense of security as to how much at risk their feet actually are.
In addition to meeting regulations, diabetic shoes must be prescribed by a physician and fitted by a qualified individual, such as a Canadian Certified Pedorthist. The shoes must also be equipped with a removable orthotic. Foot orthotics are devices such as shoe inserts, arch supports, or shoe fillers such as lifts, wedges and heels.
The diabetic shoes and customized insoles work together as a preventative system to help diabetics avoid foot injuries and improve mobility.
As Niagara’s total foot care clinic, Elio’s offers the finest quality diabetic footwear. Ask your doctor about the health benefits of diabetic footwear. Elio’s offers a solution to reduce diabetes foot pain and problems. Get a pair of diabetic socks with your next purchase of Dr. Comfort shoes.
If you suffer from burning, jabbing foot pain caused by diabetes, or tingling, throbbing, numbness prickling in your feet, please seek advice from a doctor. A physician can also check your foot health by checking for infections from ulcers.
A doctor’s referral may be required to qualify for insurance plans to cover some costs of your foot comfort solution. Please visit your doctor to complete Elio’s Prescription Form for orthotics or a custom footwear solution from Elio’s.
