What is Charcot Foot

A Charcot Foot is a problem that most commonly occurs in those with diabetes, especially if they have the sensory nerve damage. Because of the nerve damage they are unable to sense any trauma that occurs in the foot, so the damage continues resulting in a range of deformities as they keep walking on the damage.
