The feet can be a barometer of our health, and like other parts of our bodies, it is important to care for our feet. The feet need to be strong, limber, and stable to perform daily functions, keep us upright, and prevent us from falling. Foot pain is common, yet many of us do not care for our feet as we should. A daily foot routine can go a long way in preventing foot problems. Things to consider doing as part of such a routine include washing, drying, and moisturizing the feet daily, cutting toenails regularly and straight across to prevent ingrown toenails, and wearing shoes that are comfortable and fit well. Examining the feet for brewing issues, such as cuts, growths, or discoloration, is also important. If you would like more information on caring for your feet, it is suggested that you make an appointment with a podiatrist today.
Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact one of our podiatrists from Toe-tal Family Footcare Associates. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.
Everyday Foot Care
Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. Without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks.
It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before. For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops. Wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent Athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.
