Some of the most common reasons for amputations are:
- Diabetic and Idiopathic neuropathy
- Gross Deformity
- Ulceration causing osteomyelitis (gangrene)
Comfort Shoe Specialists Pedorthic care focuses on safely supporting the remainder of the foot and limb. Footwear includes every aspect of that protection from lotions to socks to inserts (custom orthotic devices) to accommodate shoe wear. At Comfort Shoe Specialists, custom molded footwear is often recommended since they offer no compromise in fit and support. 3-dimensional orthotics to support and straighten is an accurate description of custom molded footwear.
Comfort Shoe Specialists in St. Louis, Missouri, offers traditional custom molded footwear, and we usually recommend high tops, especially with an amputation.
