Dr. Comfort Diabetic Shoes at Johnston Drug
Dr. Comfort shoes are specially designed to fit the diabetic foot. They feature extra width and depth in the toe box and forefoot to relieve pressure from key areas of the foot.
Why choose a diabetic shoe?
People with diabetes can suffer from peripheral neuropathy which is a loss of sensation in the fingers, hands, feet and toes. Everyday shoes are made for style and unfortunately can create pressure points on your foot. Shoes that do not fit well present a danger to the patient with peripheral neuropathy because their feet may not feel when a shoe is uncomfortable and sore.
Diabetic shoes are designed to eliminate many of the structures in common shoes that can cause injury to the foot.
Diabetic footwear can help prevent more serious foot health complications that can arise as a result of diabetes. Dr. Comfort manufactures several different styles of shoes. Our staff will work to make sure the shoes fit and are comfortable and safe.
In some cases the cost of the Dr. Comfort shoes is covered by Medicare and some insurances for all or part of the cost of Dr. Comfort shoes and prescription inserts for diabetics who meet certain criteria.
