Recognizing And Addressing The Impact Of The COVID-19 Tidal Wave On Lower Extremity Wound Care

Recognizing And Addressing The Impact Of The COVID-19 Tidal Wave On Lower Extremity Wound Care | Digital Foot Universe | Scoop.it
Lower extremity wound care has changed dramatically. A few months ago, we provided regimented care to our patients with ulcers. We identified and treated infections seamlessly. We referred patients with vasculopathy to vascular surgeon colleagues for endovascular or open bypass procedures to restore blood flow. We would perform elective surgery procedures to relieve ulcer-causing deformities.

Then the COVID-19 pandemic turned health care upside down, shattering the wound care supply chain in the process.

Foot Health in Pregnancy – National Feet Week

Foot Health in Pregnancy – National Feet Week | Digital Foot Universe | Scoop.it
Pregnancy has a huge impact on the human body but did you know how much it affects the feet? Throughout pregnancy and after the birth our feet can swell, ache, cramp and become itchy due to hormonal changes and natural weight gain. The main causes of foot pain during pregnancy are swollen feet and ankles and pain in the arch and heel. Relaxin is an ovarian hormone which increases during pregnancy and causes the muscles and ligaments to stretch and soften. This in turn makes the feet more prone to ankle and ligament strains. As with many foot problems, footwear can also be a factor. Podiatrist’s recommend a shoe with a heel height of approximately 3cm (1.2inches) as this helps to reduce any pain or discomfort by shifting the weight further forward on the feet. A supportive, wide fitting shoe will minimise any discomfort and help to avoid any long term problems. Shoes with straps can help the shoe to stay in place but towards the end of the pregnancy, it’s advisable to avoid shoes with fiddly straps. If high heels can’t be avoided, occasional wear is a must. Save them for occasions where you won’t be on your feet for too long. Choose a supportive shoe for everyday wear. Feet can swell during the day and as such, shoe shopping is best done later on in the day. It’s a common myth that shoes can be worn or broken in. If they pinch or rub in the shop, they will be just as uncomfortable when you get them home. A shoe with a round or square toe is recommended. Shoes with a pointed toe can cause much discomfort. When shopping for boots, take into consideration that your calves may also swell during pregnancy. Choose a boot with a side zip fastening to make it easier to get them on and off – something you’ll be very grateful for as the pregnancy progresses. To reduce the risk of cramps and swelling it is recommended that you keep active. Before starting an exercise program do consult your GP or midwife. If you do experience arch pain or general foot pain, help is available from your Podiatrist. If necessary an orthotic device can be prescribed and fitted to make your feet feel much more comfortable.

Adapting Essential Principles Of Biomechanical Assessment For Telemedicine Visits

Adapting Essential Principles Of Biomechanical Assessment For Telemedicine Visits | Digital Foot Universe | Scoop.it
There are several common steps I use in a general biomechanical assessment when I am evaluating patients with injuries or pain. I recently shared these principles during a remote lecture I gave to students at the California School of Podiatric Medicine at Samuel Merritt University. However, in a time when traditional office visits are limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I thought some of these steps may be adaptable to a telemedicine-type of encounter.
