General Foot Diseases

We give every visitor of our site the opportunity to be informed about any kind of limb disease that may be of interest to you.

For serious types of illness that occur frequently or less frequently.

The lower limbs are the foundations of the human body. They support the body when standing, walking or running. They also protect the spine, bones and soft particles from the daily burden they receive. The legs are made of three arches, which provide support and absorb loads when in their ideal condition. The inability of a pedestrian arc to absorb loads, carries them to the other two and chained to the rest of the body joints and to the spine. Spine Stabilizers help prevent and treat this exact chain reaction.
We often blame long standing stools, walking or narrow shoes for our legs. These are the simplest versions. Foot pain can be due to many causes, other simple and more complex. But the only one to be able to distinguish them is the doctor. In cases where the pain lasts more than 24 to 48 hours, it must be checked by him. If it is accompanied by swelling, the visit to the specialist should be immediate.

According to experts, the main causes are usually pathological.

- Problem in the spine or waist. In this case the pain can be accompanied by numbness and cramping, especially during sleep.

- Angiopathy due to arteriosclerosis or diabetes. Pain in this case occurs after an effort (eg walking) and it looks like a cramp.

- Diabetic neuropathy (affecting the nervous system from diabetes) that can even cause nerve palsy.

- Arthritis (joint inflammation) that can be created following an infection, e.g. tonsillitis, prostatitis, vaginitis. Tendonitis, ie inflammation of the tendons usually due to the use of low and heelless shoe (Achilles tendonitis).

Conclusion: The conditions presented in the legs can be divided into two major categories.

In the second category are the diseases that are generalized (systemic diseases) and among other things in the body affect the legs. These include diabetes, arthritis such as gout, cardiovascular and renal diseases, anemia, and others.

Foot disease affects most people at some stage of their lives.

They reduce the quality of their lives, have a negative impact on their work and cause great strain.

Unfortunately, many people do not give the importance they need to care for their feet. Also, some doctors forget the relationship of foot health with general ailments and so their diagnostic examination does not involve careful examination of the legs.

For this reason, primary or secondary foot conditions may escape attention and the patient stays without the treatment or prevention needed.
