Foot and ankle pain can affect the gait and cause pain in the hips, knees and back. These issues can increase the risk of falling and sustaining more serious injuries.
Additionally, uncontrolled diabetes can cause nerve damage, numbness and poor circulation in the feet and ankles. To treat patients with diabetes who have foot and ankle wounds, Dr. Karulak works with the HCM Wound Healing Clinic in Fredericksburg to prevent and treat limb loss, heal wounds and help patients return to normal life.
