Peripheral micro-circulation in lower extremities is compromised in diabetic clients. This state leads to the development of lower extremity ulcers, infection, gangrene, amputation, anxiety and depression in the client as a complication of the event. The consequences can be prevented by implementation of Buerger Allen Exercise along with regular assessment of skin perfusion pressure to improve peripheral circulation in the microvasculature. This exercise and assessment of SPP (Skin perfusion pressure) can be used by the physicians, nurses, physiotherapist and other health care practitioners.
