Tips to Fight Against Foot Pain

Monday, 11 June 2018 00:00

A recent survey has concluded that 8 out of 10 Americans have experienced some sort of foot problem. Depending on the specific condition, foot pain can cause problems throughout the day and may make completing everyday activities difficult. In order to prevent problematic foot conditions, you should make sure you are choosing the right shoes for your feet. When you are shopping for a new pair of shoes, you should ensure that there is at least half an inch of space between your longest toe and the top of the shoe. If you have foot pain, you shouldn't follow the adage, “If you can walk on it, it isn’t broken” because it isn’t true. If you are experiencing pain in your feet, you shouldn't hesitate to seek help from a podiatrist.

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 New Tampa Foot & Ankle. 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.
