Take Care of Your Feet
Our feet take the brunt of our daily movement. Step after step, they carry us through our day. From the gym, to work, to home, and weekend plans, they provide the support we need. Crammed into tight shoes or sandals with little support, they slowly develop problems if we ignore them. It starts with an ache here, or a blister there, and turns into ingrown nails, plantar fasciitis, bunions, hammertoes, and sometimes much worse. As our feet are pushed too far, we are forced to slow down.
When we think of the importance of foot care and prevention, we often associate it with the elderly or those with diabetes. While foot health is extremely vital in those populations, it is actually important for all feet, of all ages and conditions. When it comes to foot health, prevention is your greatest tool. Adapting a simple, daily routine can have a big impact on the health of your feet. An ongoing routine could protect you from infection, deformities, and many diseases. If you value being mobile and independent, regular foot care is the best way to remain that way.
