Happy Feet

To prevent foot problems and to maintain good foot health, below are a few simple things you should remember:

  • Bathe feet daily and dry them thoroughly
  • Check feet frequently for pain, corns, calluses, cracks or other abnormalities.
  • Changes and/or pain in the feet or ankles are not normal and could indicate a serious foot ailment or circulatory problem
  • Keep feet warm
  • Wear proper fitting socks
  • Wear proper fitting shoes or protective footwear
  • Walk. Walking is the best exercise for the feet
  • Wear safety footwear at work and at home when using tools or moving heavy items. Safety footwear is comfortable, flexible, stylish and provides protection from injury.
  • Seek medical attention at the first sign of an injury or infection in the foot or ankle. Self-treatment is not always a good choice and can turn a minor problem into a major one.
  • Prevent foot problems by using these suggestions and by visiting your podiatrist for an annual health checkup. By visiting your podiatrist regularly, you can insure good health for your feet.
