Tips for Stronger and Healthier Feet

Dancers spend a lot of time on their feet, and it is important that they know how to take care of them in order to prevent injuries. One of the best ways to prevent injury is to wear appropriate shoes that will take the pressure off your feet. If you are looking to maintain strong feet, you can try doing some stretches to improve your stability and strength. Some exercises that you may find helpful are calf muscle stretches and resistance band exercises. Nevertheless, if you suspect that you have any sort of lingering pain in your feet, you should seek help from your podiatrist right away.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Michael E. Newman, DPM from Pennsylvania. 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.
