Your Feet Get You Places

Tuesday, 29 November 2022 00:00

Given how much work our feet do for us in getting places in life, it stands to reason that we should take care of them well. Feet that look good generally feel good. Going barefoot can lead to injuries, especially if done so on hard surfaces. It is better to wear cushioned sandals or slippers when indoors. Choosing the right footwear is imperative in taking care of your feet. It is important to wear supportive shoes designed for the activity undertaken. One would not want to wear tennis shoes for running or high heels for working or standing for prolonged periods. When shoe shopping, cushioning, arch support, and shock absorption are key factors to look for. The shape of the shoe should also match the shape of the foot, and shoes should be comfortable from the moment they are tried on. Assess the soles of the shoes to examine unevenness as well as wear and tear, and replace shoes when necessary. Check your feet regularly and gift yourself pedicures and foot massages as key ways to relax the feet and care for them. If you have problems with your feet, do not self-diagnose. Instead, visit a podiatrist who can examine your feet and catch and treat anything that goes amiss.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Tupper from Coshocton Foot Health Center. Our doctor 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.
