Those who have neuropathy understand just how painful this condition can be. Neural damage in the feet produces a painful tingling or burning sensation, which gets more severe when you are on your feet. This condition is common among those with advanced diabetes, but it can be caused by other factors, such as infections or trauma. Certain medications, toxins, and deficiencies can also lead to this condition.
Pressure on feet with neuropathy only exacerbates this painful condition, turning tingling sensations into an intolerable inferno. To avoid this, the footwear must be slightly looser than normal, as the patient may not even be able to tell when a blister is forming. And a blister can lead to a localized infection — or even life-threatening cellulitis.
In advanced stages, those with this condition cannot feel their feet at all, making walking difficult and falls more likely. The appropriate footwear for this condition can make all the difference, helping to ensure one’s mobility and comfort.
If you have neuropathy, your doctor may have stressed the importance of increasing your daily exercise to prevent the condition from getting worse. And while you have tried to find walking or running shoes online that fit you appropriately, you may find that new shoes only exacerbate the burning, stabbing sensations in your feet, making you reluctant to stand on your feet at all, let alone take that extra lap around the block.
Neuropathy pain can be lessened with the appropriate footwear
To alleviate neuropathy pain, each step must be shielded in a pillow of cushiony softness, to avoid extra pressure on sensitive tissues. Shoes made from breathable, stretchable materials that don’t bind or rub allow the foot to move with greater comfort and prevent blisters and chafing. Our specialists will study your foot’s condition to determine the best footwear and inserts to make mobility a more comfortable experience.
