Sugar Land, TX, Foot Doctor Answers: What is Charcot Foot?

Charcot foot is a condition that is common in people with significant damage from neuropathy. This means that diabetics have a high risk of getting a charcot foot. People with a tight Achilles tendon also have a high risk of getting a charcot foot. Charcot foot causes your bones to become weak, which can cause severe deformity, disability, or even amputation. If you continue regular activity on a charcot foot it can even change the shape of your foot permanently.
There are some things your doctor may suggest before surgery which include, custom shoe bracing, immobilization or activity modification. It’s important to consult a doctor even before surgery is necessary, failure to do so could result in a loss of a toe, foot, or leg. If the deformity becomes too severe your doctor will recommend surgery. If you think that you may have this condition consult your doctor right away to start preventing further damage to your foot.
