Our doctors recommend numerous preventative measures such as a healthy, stable diet as well as moderate exercise, but also a constant attentiveness to your lower extremities. It is very beneficial to have friends and family members check the bottoms and hard-to-see portions of your feet as there can be small cuts or pressure points that you may not be able to feel and can generate big problems. Hand held mirrors are also helpful for you to examine your feet yourself! The earlier a problem is caught, the easier it may be to treat.
