The Rules of Foot Health

#1: It’s important to maintain good foot health. You should take care of your feet. This rules comes first because it is the most important rule! I think that you should always be taking care of your feet. You can do this by doing regular self-care and by going to a podiatrist if needed. Your foot health is very important, so make sure you are doing everything in your power to protect it!

#2: Don’t go barefoot outside unless absolutely necessary (and preferably not even then). I know, this one seems obvious, but I am serious about this rule! If you don’t have any footwear on and you step on something sharp or dirty, it will hurt your foot (or worse!). There have been numerous deaths in China due to people not wearing shoes outside and stepping on needles or nails which lead to infections….there are many more similar stories out there that may not be reported as often as they should be but they exist nonetheless! Be careful when walking around outdoors without shoes on…it really isn’t worth risking getting an infection just so you can feel the grass between your toes. If possible wear sandals or flip flops outside when walking around without shoes…this way if there is anything dangerous underfoot, at least it won’t go directly into your skin and cause an infection like before mentioned. You should keep your feet healthy, so don’t go lolly-gagging around without shoes on.

 #3: Don’t wear the wrong type of shoes for your feet (and know how to tell). Many people wear the wrong type of shoes…or they may not even be wearing shoes at all! There are many different types of footwear out there and each have their own pros and cons. For example, if you have flat feet you should avoid high heels because they can cause a lot of health issues in those with flat feet. In fact, I see a lot of patients who come in to my office with heel pain or plantar fasciitis that was caused by wearing high heels with flatter feet which is why it’s important to know what types of shoes are good for your foot type before buying them! Almost everyone nowadays wears sneakers, but often times these aren’t the best choice for their foot health. Sneakers tend to be worn more than other kinds of footwear because they are comfortable and easy to put on/take off…however this is a problem!!! Sneakers tend to rub against the skin so much that it can cause a painful blister or callous over time which can lead to other problems later down the road such as corns and calluses. This also leads me into my next rule.

 #4: Try to wear shoes made of leather whenever possible. I will be the first to admit that a lot of athletic shoes aren’t made out of leather, but they do exist! Leather is naturally soft and flexible so it causes less friction on the skin which means it’s less likely to cause problems such as blisters, calluses or corns. Wear leather if you can, but just make sure that you don’t wear them all the time…don’t overuse them! I love my leather sneakers because they are simple and easy to put on. If your feet start hurting after wearing them for a long period of time though, then switch out your sneakers with some sandals that have support in them or go barefoot if it doesn’t bother you too much (as mentioned previously). It’s important to take care of your feet so try not to use the same pair of shoes all day every day either…switch up from sneakers/athletic shoes when going outside for a long period of time (like an hour or more) with something else like flip flops or sandals.

 #5: Don’t walk around barefoot in public places where there may be germs/dirt present.

 You should keep your feet healthy! If you see any changes on your feet or you experience any pain or discomfort in the area, don’t just ignore it!
