Testing for sensitivity in your feet
This test helps you feel for sensation changes in your feet.
You can do the test at home to check the sensitivity (or feeling) in your feet. Sensitivity is one way in which your body alerts you to other problems.
Pain or throbbing tells you when you’ve hurt yourself. In the case of feet, pain can happen because of a burn, blister, cut, ulcer or even problems with your shoes. Because you feel it, you can act quickly and get the right treatment.
