Diabetic foot


Diabetic Foot Syndrome represents the sophisticated complex of anatomic and functional changes that is often found among the diabetic sufferers – 30-60% is affected. The high blood glucose content decreases the blood fluidity, thus the capillary blood circulation is degrading and as a result the cells are deprived of proper nutriment. When such blood condition exists for a long time, it results in deterioration and impairment of the lower limbs nerves and blood vessels, in disarrangement of muscles innervation processes (neuropathy) and in decreasing and weakening of magistral blood flow in the arteries (angiopathy). 50-70% of all lower limbs amputations fall on the segment of diabetic patients. After amputation, in 2-3 years time from 30 to 50 percents of diabetic amputees usually die.

The doctors keep saying that unloading of the diabetic feet is necessary, they strongly recommend to use crutches, canes, wheel-chairs. But there is no mentioning that the proper gait, the definite sequence of the muscles contractions lead to improving of venous-muscular feet pump functioning. The endocrinologists are not taking into consideration the well known fact that the human body muscles execute up to 94% of all work in the blood circulation system and the whole 100% in the lymph circulation system. Exactly the defection and disturbance in the cellular metabolism are the sources of all diseases. If we observe the deterioration and decline of arterial blood flow, it is imperative to understand, that the reason for this is the disturbance in the drain (or outflow) of the venous blood (notice: 75% of all blood belongs to the lower limbs venous system). In the process of uplifting blood to the heart the following agents take part: muscular-venous pumps of the feet as well as muscular-venous pumps of the hips and abdomen.

The present-day orthopaedics does not offer the restoration of muscles pump function and elimination of deformations – there are no such objectives and goals. When the rigid orthotics are manufactured, an array of utmost important factors are never taken into account: impairments in the gait biomechanics, the direction of forces that affect the foot, the deformations character. The utilization of soft and thick materials in orthotics, like “plastozot” and the like, does not solve the problem of feet arches correction, and the problem of muscles pump function restoration. Thus, immediate but short comfort conforms for the feet into even more complex types of deformations.

The orthopaedics functional orthotics bio-podocorrectors provide the uniform load distribution under the balanced condition of skeletal-muscular apparatus, with the resulting normalization in blood circulation of whole human body. The un-healing wounds and sores, the ulcer formations quickly begin to heal over, the blood sugar comes to normal.

But the properly manufactured orthotics is only the half-way to possible recovery. It is utmost important in what footwear the orthotics are used, and besides – how properly and regularly you will be walking. If the footwear is manufactured with mistakes and drawbacks, then your shoes would restrict the feet mobility and moreover, would distort the loading pattern for skeleton while walking, therefore facilitating the deformations development.

Centre of Functional Orthopaedics possesses and actively manages the healing methods that not only allow to save the foot from amputation, but to normalize blood sugar as well. Besides, bio-podocorrectors are the means of reflectorial information influence on the human organism. The body energy pattern shifts to balanced condition in a remarkably short time – from 7 days to a month.

In relation with this, it is very important to be aware that information from the sick organism is fixating by the leather-made or fabric-made footwear orthotics. That is why the possibility to wash orthotics must be at hand. The orthotics colour, whether leather-made or fabric-made – these are the important factors of therapeutic influence, which must be taken into consideration when manufacturing orthotics or buying footwear.
