Getting Back to Work: Making the Transition from your Quarantine Slippers to Work Sandals
Protecting your feet is so critical to your overall health, but it is often times overlooked. April is Foot Health Awareness month, so we are sharing our top 10 foot tips that you can follow to keep your feet happy and healthy! These are great tips for anyone, whether you’ve been monitoring your foot health for years, or you’re just now getting started.
One of the most critical pieces of advice that we, as podiatrists, can give our patient population is to perform daily foot checks and evaluations. By performing this simple daily task and paying close attention to your feet, you can identify a multitude of foot problems, from foot fungus and ingrown toenails to more serious conditions.
Of course, nobody wants to have toenail fungus. Whether discolored, abnormally thick or cracked, fungus can do a number on your toenails…but I’m ok, you’re ok—it’s super common!
Taking care of our feet is something that is often overlooked on our yearly medical to-do list. Most people are adamant about scheduling their annual check-ups, dentist appointments, and even eye doctor visits, but “annual foot check” is a task that is just not on a lot of people’s radar.
