See How Easily You Can Find Shoes For Your Foot Neuropathy Problem
Foot neuropathy— specifically peripheral neuropathy— is a very dangerous disease especially to those suffering from diabetics or AIDS. When neuropathy reaches a certain stage the person suffering from this will no longer be able to distinguish how much pressure he is putting on either foot. Thus, he will not be aware of when the wound in his foot is already worsening.
At worse, this could lead to the need for the person’s legs being amputated. One must take steps in order to avoid this. When trying to achieve this goal, one of the best things a person can do is purchase and wear the proper footwear.
There are basically three aspects your shoe should have: (1) wide toe space, (2) cushioning for the balls of your feet and (3) heel counters to support your heels. There are certain brands of shoes that make shoes specifically with these three aspects in mind. Among these brands of footwear are Crocs, New Balance, and Birkenstock.
How Certain Brands Of Footwear Work And What To Do If They Don’t
One of my friends who is suffering from early stages of foot neuropathy was first saddened by the fact that he could no longer wear his favorite brands of footwear such as Nike and Adidas, which he wears while playing basketball. However, his health came first so he decided to give New Balance shoes a try.
The shoe worked wonders for his game and for his feet. The wide toe space provided by his shoes allowed him to wiggle his toes and keep them more relaxed. The heel counters and cushioning for the balls of his feet allowed him to run around the court and do jump shots without feeling much discomfort.
While it did not take away the pain completely, it still allowed him to continue playing his favorite sport. If you wear the proper footwear yet your condition still worsens then it is time to see a qualified doctor to address your foot neuropathy problems.
