Peripheral Neuropathy - Podiatrist in Quincy, Dedham, Boston MA - Marshall Lukoff, DPM
Podiatrist Dr. Marshall Lukoff of FootCare Specialists discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy.
A common effect from diabetes is nerve damage and unfortunately, this typically happens in the feet. Whenever there is nerve damage in the body, sensation perception levels drop dramatically. As a result, the risk of serious injury to the affected area is much greater as patients are not able to feel harm to their feet. A simple break in the skin can turn into a dangerous infection because it has gone un-noticed and left un-treated.
