The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) is a resource for foot and ankle health information, representing thousands of podiatrists. The organization is “dedicated to promoting foot and ankle health, member service, and professional excellence.” The APMA aims to increase awareness and educate the public about foot and ankle health issues.
The APMA website features a lot of information about various foot and ankle health issues. The section on Diabetic Wound Care has answers and resources for people dealing with diabetic ulcers. The sections are organized by the patient journey with sections about causes, finding a podiatrist, preparing for your appointment, and more.
The APMA Diabetic Wound Care site doesn’t just provide information – it also features various resources that diabetic ulcer patients can use. Users can find a podiatrist near them via the doctor directory and learn more about what a podiatrist does and what an appointment entails. Users can also find products that have been approved by the Seal of Acceptance/Approval Program including lotions, deodorizers, wound care treatments, devices, and medicines.
Another section in the Diabetic Wound Care site is centered around “Tips For Healthy Feet.” This section has foot tips geared towards specific holidays and seasons, footwear selection, pedicure pointers, and more. This section is ideal for anyone who wants to know how to manage diabetic ulcers and all of the information is written in clear and engaging language.
