The majority of patients suffer from a pretty routine range of ailments. If you take some precautions, you can significantly reduce your susceptibility to the most common issues that affect your feet.
How to Care for Your Feet
Here’s a closer look at the techniques you can use to care for your feet and reduce your susceptibility to common foot and feet issues:
Wear the Right Shoes
First things first, it’s important that you make sure to wear the right shoes most of the time. It’s surprising how many people will wear shoes that aren’t quite comfortable or flawless in terms of fit. Even the slightest discomfort can cause you to adjust your stride, and this can have dramatic impacts on the rest of your body.
If your shoes rub against your feet and cause blisters, your body will naturally make small micro adjustments. Even though those are often imperceptible, you might find that it causes nerve or muscle compensation further up your body.
This is why you should really take the time to shop for your shoes and try them out before you buy them. Walk a little in them and make sure that they feel completely comfortable. Most people will do better with a light but sturdy shoe with a small elevation at the heel.
Buy Your Shoes in the Afternoon
One of the main reasons that people wear uncomfortable shoes is that they shop at the wrong time. You will find that as the day goes on, your feet will swell slightly. Your shoes should be comfortable when your feet are at their most swollen, and therefore biggest.
Some people shop too early in the day while their feet and slimmer. This means that those shoes might not fit properly as the day wears on.
Care for Your Toenails
Lots of people experience issues with their toenails. Ingrown and infected toenails can be very painful, and they have the potential to seriously limit a person’s mobility. This is why you should take every step to make sure you care for your toenails as well as possible.
Make sure that you use a pair of quality clippers and that you don’t trim your toenails too short. If you do, you might find that your toenail could push into the skin at the edge.
Dry Your Feet Properly
It’s also very important that you dry your feet properly. Bacteria thrives in damp conditions, so you should be sure to dry your feet thoroughly and pay careful attention to between your toes. This can give you the best possible chance of reducing your susceptibility to fungal infections.
