- MINOR FOOT ULCER

-FOOTWEAR ADVICE

Foot ulcers

 

What is it?

  • A foot ulcer is a breakdown of the epidermal (outer) layers of skin.

 

Why does this happen?

  • Whether through severe corns becoming ulcerated due to compressional and shearing stresses; diabetes; varicose ulcers; venous ulcers or other underlying factors.

    • The epidermal tissues (outer layers of skin) degrade, becoming infected, inflamed and seeping fluid.

  • At 'Simply Podiatry Limited' minor ulcerations can be assessed and treated.  If the area is deemed as 'high risk' then a letter of recommendation will be written to see their GP.  The GP can then make an appropriate referral to a specialised 'High Risk Diabetic Foot Clinic'.

  • Minor ulcerations require debridement of the necrotic tissue to encourage healthy skin growth. The podiatrist will also address deflective padding, offloading and the most appropriate footwear required.

Stages of progression for an ulcer to heal:

  • 1) Active (Wound size increases)

  • 2) Proliferative (Wound dimension decreases)

  • 3) Maturation (Wound closes) scar forms

Footwear Advice

  • We all like the way our shoes look and feel, so I believe with regular podiatric care everything worn in moderation shouldn't hold us back.

  • Footwear advice will be based on the principle characteristics of what makes a good shoe.

  • When giving advise on appropriate footwear several factors will be taken  into consideration (the patients’ health; the shape of their feet, their lifestyle, work activities).
