  • MI PODIATRIST DISCUSSES HOW VASCULAR DISEASE AFFECTS THE LEGS AND FEET

 

PODIATRIST, DR. CORWYN BERGSMA STATES, "BEYOND THE OBVIOUS REASONS WHY PEOPLE COME TO A PODIATRIST WITH CONDITIONS SUCH AS HEEL PAIN, METATARSAL PAIN, BUNIONS, AND HAMMERTOES ARE THE NOT SO VISIBLE THINGS HAT CAN GO WRONG SUCH AS VASCULAR DISEASE.  OVER TIME, VEINS CAN LOSE THERE VALVES, RESULTING IN POOLING OF THE BLOOD IN THE ANKLES. VENOUSE DISEASE CAN CAUSE SKIN ULCERS WHICH NEED TO BE ADDRESSED BY A PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN OR PODIATRIST.  EVEN MORE IMPORTANT IS ARTERIAL DISEASE, WHICH IS SILENT.  CALVE PAIN IS NOT NORMAL.  IT'S CALLED CLAUDICATION, AND IT CAN ACTUALLY BE ASSESSED WITH TWO FINGERS TO SEE IF BLOOD IS PULSATING FROM THE HEART TO THE LEGS AND FEET.
