Home : Conditions : Charcot Foot
Charcot foot is a pattern of bone and joint damage that can lead to foot deformity. Charcot foot begins with peripheral neuropathy, a disease of the nerves in the feet. Because your nerves do not function well when you suffer from peripheral neuropathy, you may not sense pain when you injure your foot. You may break bones or damage joints without knowing it. If you keep walking on your injured foot, fractures can heal unevenly. This causes foot deformity.
It’s important to meet with a trained podiatrist who can diagnose this condition early on and begin treatment. To schedule an appointment with one of the expert podiatric physicians and surgeons at Ankle & Foot Care Centers, please contact us today.
