Shoes For Charcot-Marie Tooth

Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is composed of a group of inherited, slowly progressive disorders that cause nerve damage. Several symptoms include numbness and wasting away of tissue in the feet and legs followed by the hands and arms.

What are the causes? The damage to nerves is usually from a loss of electrical insulation around the nerve fibers. Motor nerves, nerves that stimulate movement, are affected the most. Symptoms begin around mid-childhood and early adulthood with the nerves in the legs affected first and most severely.
Symptoms:

  • Foot deformity-extremely high arch to feet
  • Numbness in foot or leg
  • Decreased muscle strength of the hips, legs or feet
  • Foot drop- inability to hold foot horizontal
  • “Slapping” gait-foot hits the floor hard when walking
  • Appearance of a “Stork leg”-loss of lower leg muscle mass causing skinny calves
  • Progressive leg deformity
RECOMMENDATIONS: : Currently there isn’t a cure for Charcot-Marie-Tooth. Maximizing independence is the main focus and hopefully orthopedic surgery, braces and/or orthopedic shoes can achieve that. In order to maintain muscle strength and maximize independent functioning vocational counseling, occupational therapy, or physical therapy may be necessary.
SHOE RECOMMENDATIONS: Please view our Extra Extra Depth Shoes.
