    Abstract

    Motor neuropathy in patients with diabetes can lead to weakness in the muscles of the foot and lower leg, which in turn can lead to characteristic changes to the structure of the foot, such as an altered arch profile. Such structural changes often occur at sites of abnormally high pressure, which can result in tissue breakdown and ulceration particularly in individuals who also have sensory neuropathy.
