Newton, Veronica and McIntosh, Caroline (2008) Neuropathy - gait changes in the diabetic foot. Wound Essentials, 3. pp. 152-155.

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.
