Charcot’s foot is a disease that affects bones, joints, and tissue in your feet. This disease can cause you to lose feeling in your foot or ankle because of nerve damage. Due to the nerve damage, foot bones are weakened and are susceptible to fractures and foot deformities that can change the shape of your foot. The misshapen areas can cause friction which leads to painful sores. This disease can affect one or both feet or ankles. Thankfully, Great Neck Family Foot Care has several skilled podiatrists who are capable of treating Charcot Foot and other conditions of the feet and ankles.
