Feet are often the burden bearers of our bodies whenever we spend a lot of time doing physical activity. Wearing shoes for long periods of time, especially ill-fitting shoes, can lead to many foot complications. Corns and calluses can form as pressure is constantly exerted on the feet, while more serious foot conditions can result from uncomfortable shoes. Care for your feet by making sure to choose shoes that have natural leather, have enough room for the toes to wiggle, and prioritize comfort.
Every day foot care is very important, especially for those that are lacking the proper foot care resources. For more information about everyday foot care, visit Dr. Carl Ingrassia of Fords Foot and Ankle Care. Our doctor can treat your pain as well as any other foot or ankle condition.
Every Day 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. After all, 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 example.
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.
Also, 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.
