What is Charcot Foot?Charcot Foot (pronounced “sharko” foot) is the term used to describe the softening of the bones in your feet.
Often caused by trauma (like a severe bang, a sprain or crushing action, or even a minor repetitive trauma, like going for a walk), the softening of the bones can lead fractures and deformities, like a collapsed arch.
Charcot foot is usually a result of severe diabetes and patients with diabetic neuropathy (lack of sensation) in the foot.
Because of neuropathy, the pain of an injury often goes unnoticed and the patient continues to walk, making the ailment worse.
Treating & Preventing Charcot Foot:
Treatment for Charcot Foot is to relieve the weight and pressure to the affected foot. Yes... that means bed rest and crutches, and possibly even using a wheelchair to allow healing time and help prevent further damages to the soft bones. Regular checkups with your doctor is recommended.
Custom shoes with special supportive foot beds are often prescribed. Surgery may be an option, in more severe cases.

FIR Socks help treat Charcot Foot?
The threads in Prolotex™ Socks are fused with a safe formula of bio-ceramics that emit beneficial far infrared rays (FIR). These safe waves of soothing FIR energy penetrate deep into the tissues of your feet, helping to restore the sensitivity and touch sensation by increasing the molecular activity of the cells.
The stimulation of the tiny capillaries and veins in your feet dilate the cells and allow fresh oxygenated blood containing vital nutrients to reach the over stress areas.
