PA PODIATRIST, DR. LEE SAUNDERS STATES, "THE MONOFILAMENT IS ESSENTIALLY A SHORT PIECE OF NYLON FISHING LINE.  THE DOCTOR ASKS YOU TO CLOSE YOUR EYES AND THEN PRESSES THE MONOFILAMENT TO THE FOOT, OFTEN STARTING WITH THE TOES AND THEN MOVING TO OTHER SPOTS.  IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO FEEL THE APPLICATION OF THE MONOFILAMENT, YOU HAVE SOME LOSS OF SENSORY PERCEPTION." 

PODIATRIST SAUNDERS STATES, "PEOPLE MAY NOT FEEL IT AT THE LEVEL OF THE TOES, BUT THEY MAY FEEL IT AT THE BALL OR THE ARCH OR HEEL.  TESTING AT MULTIPLE LOCATIONS GIVES THE DOCTOR A SENCE OF HOW FAR THE CONDITION HAS PROGRESSED."

THESE ARE IMPORTANT TESTS FOR PEOPLE THAT HAVE CIRCULATORY OR NEUROLOGICAL CONDITIONS SUCH AS DIABETES.  OUR FOOT CLINIC PURCHASED A DEVICE FOR MEASURING DPN OR DIABETIC PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY FOR THE EARLY DETECTION OF NEUROLOGICAL DEFICITS.  THIS IS A ROUTINE TESTING DEVICE THAT WE USE FOR SCREENING THE EARLY STAGES OF DIABETES.  THIS IS CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY AND OUR FOOT CLINIC IS ALWAYS TRYING TO STAY CURRENT WITH THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY AND TECHNIQUES.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.
