Fighting Acute And Chronic Pain With Innovative Technology – Foot ailments are commonly accompanied with either acute or chronic pain and various non-invasive methods are being launched for its treatment. For instance, podiatrists are using Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT), to treat acute or chronic pain in the muscle and tendon, which uses pressure waves to stimulate blood circulation to the lower limb and enhances the metabolism, helping the regeneration of tissues in the affected area. EPAT is also considered as an alternative to surgery and the whole process takes only 5-10 minutes.
Multidisciplinary Approach To Treatment Of Diabetic Foot Ulcers – Foot diseases arise primarily due to an existing comorbid condition such as diabetes or arthritis. For instance, one in four diabetic individuals suffer from diabetic foot ulcers (DFU), the treatment of which requires a podiatrist and an endocrinologist. In certain cases, a vascular specialist is also required to grade the severity of the disease and the chances of ulcer development in a patient with peripheral vascular disease is high. In the UK, a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of diabetic foot ulcer is trending and a person with DFU is attended by a podiatrist, vascular specialist, infectious disease specialist and orthotist.
