Taking Care of Your Feet

Tuesday, 04 October 2022 00:00

With all the work your feet do, they deserve some love. Yet, foot care is often last on the list of things to do or overlooked altogether. The feet can be hidden from the world and our focus is typically on what people can see – the face, hands, and hair. But having healthy feet is actually quite important. They are prone to pain and stress and because the skin on the feet usually gets less attention than other parts of our bodies, they can develop bacterial and fungal infections. Taking care of your feet is the least you can do for body parts that get you from point A to point B every single day. Some of the basics of foot care are washing, drying, and moisturizing the feet each day. Every once and awhile, treat yourself to a calming foot soak. This will soften the skin, soothe tired, aching feet, and provide relaxation. Also, wear properly fitting footwear – both shoes and socks – to protect your feet from harm. If you have questions about how to better care for your feet or have any problems with them requiring attention, see a podiatrist who specializes in foot care.

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 Foot & Ankle Institue. 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.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of our offices located in St. George, Hurricane, and Cedar City, UT and Mesquite, NV . We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
