Footcare for the Summer

When the weather warms up, it is tempting for women to choose high heels as their choice of footwear. However, the human foot is built to walk on natural grounds, without the use of a high heeled shoe. Heels cause feet to shift into an unusually inclined position, which therefore results in foot damage. Most humans are born with healthy feet, with the damage developing over time. It is important to take precautions in terms of taking care of your feet, and choosing not to wear heels may preserve their health.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Donald Manger from Associated Podiatric Physicians, PA. Dr. Manger 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.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact our office located in Hamilton Township, NJ. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
