Talking about feet
From ingrown toenails and bunions to sprains, strains, and broken bones in the foot and ankle, there are lots of reasons you might visit a podiatrist. Your foot doctor will no doubt give you all the information you need to help with your condition, but they can cover only so much ground during an office visit.
So there’s so much more they’d like you to know about avoiding foot pain, preventing infections, and keeping your feet and toenails healthy.
When you go into a shoe store, your salesperson should measure your feet
Have your feet professionally measured every time you shop for shoes. Natural ageing and changes in your health can cause the size of your feet to change. Measure both feet – late in the day – and shop for the larger foot, advises podiatrist, Dr Lori Weisenfeld.
Your change of habits during the pandemic is causing foot problems
Namely, walking barefoot around the house all day. It’s leading to things like plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, and other types of tendinitis warns podiatrist, Dr Jane Andersen.
