Foot ulcers can be a real pain, but at Hunt Footcare, we’ve got the expertise, experience and knowledge to treat them, from initial evaluation to treatment and future prevention.
Foot ulcers are skin injuries or wounds to the foot that take a long time to heal. They can be caused by poor blood flow (arterial), compromised veins (venous), continuous pressure or rubbing (decubitus) or decreased circulation (neuropathic) due to diabetes or similar conditions.
Foot ulcers come in four stages of severity, depending on the depth of the wound and how many layers of skin and underlying tissues it affects. The deeper the ulcer is, the higher the risk of infection.
