Abstract

The diabetic foot syndrome (DFS) is among chronic complications of diabetes mellitus; it can affect individuals with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Diabetic patients have up to a 25% lifetime risk of developing DFS, which is both a medical and social problem. Several studies have indicated that, apart from pharmacotherapy and modern active wound dressings, physical medicine also has a role in prevention and management of diabetic foot ulcers. The paper presents physical medicine interventions most recognized in the conservative management of DFS.
