June 11, 2018
June 2018 is Foot Health Month and at the Theale Wellbeing Centre we take foot health very seriously and in order to ensure that we provide as thorough a service as possible we will be carrying out a Neuro vascular assessment on our patient’s blood and nerve supply to the feet.
From June all new podiatry/chiropody patients will have the quality of the blood supply in their feet assessed using ultrasound technology. This will help to ensure that the circulation to the feet is adequate. The nerve testing will check that the feet are experiencing normal sensations and respond appropriately to external stimulus.
All testing is completely pain free and may help to identify possible issues such as diabetes , an irregular heart beat, greater risk of falls etc so that appropriate action can be taken to ensure your continued wellbeing.
