Preventing Foot Problems

Practicing good routine foot care will go a long way in helping to prevent foot problems. Things to tend to in such a practice include checking the skin of the feet, wearing properly fitted shoes that are appropriate for their use, and checking balance. The feet should be washed and dried thoroughly, followed by applying a moisturizer. Check the skin for calluses, blisters, and areas of irritation. It is important to wear shoes that have enough room for the toes to move freely and that do not pinch or cause any friction. Performing balance exercises regularly can help to strengthen the feet and legs and may help in the prevention of falls too. If you have any foot pain or have questions about proper foot care, it is suggested that you see a chiropodist for diagnosis and treatment options.

Caring for your feet is not just something done at the chiropodist’s office. Good foot care starts at home.
