Lower Limb Assessments & ABI Clinic

​Lower limb assessments are recommended for all patients at risk of decreased circulation and sensation; to identify and prevent complications such as wounds, ulcerations, and  loss, and should be completed yearly. 

What to expect:

•A clinician will inspect your socks and shoes for wear marks, foreign objects, arch support, and overall quality
• A visual inspection of lower limb for hair growth and visible veins (varicosities), open skin, colour, shape of foot and abnormalities, and toe nail quality will be done. 
• A hands on inspection for temperature, corns, calluses, abnormal bone growth, and visual blood flow(capillary refill)
•Questions for you regarding concerns for pain, sensitivities, past back or leg surgeries
•A Doppler test to listen for and assess quality of foot pulses

For a Lower Limb Assessment you need to have a family physician within the Rocky Medical Clinic. For more information call 403-845-3050.
