Abstract:   (1317 Views)
A 49-year-old male patient with type 2 diabetes mellitus and Diabetic Foot Syndrome (DFS) was evaluated by comprehensive diabetic foot assessment. A 10-session photobiomodulation therapy (low-level laser therapy) was prescribed for neuropathic pain and symptoms applying the scanning and probe method. Customized insoles were recommended for redistributing the plantar pressures and reducing stress on the diabetic foot’s plantar surface for 4 weeks. Dynamic plantar pressure distribution, lower limb kinematics, and postural sway were evaluated using WinTrack dynamic pressure platform. Photobiomodulation therapy with customized insoles is useful in the redistribution and treatment of plantar pressure and gait kinematics. This approach should be extensively used in DFS as preventive and treatment measures.
