Taking Care of Feet Over a Lifetime

While our eyes are often considered windows to our souls, our feet can provide valuable insights into our overall health. As we age, our feet tend to reflect changes in our bodies, including decreased circulation, thinning skin, brittle bones, muscle atrophy, and arthritis. Many of these conditions can initially manifest in the foot and ankle, making it essential to monitor them for any alterations, discomfort, or pain. Footwear choices also play a significant role in foot health. Younger individuals often prioritize style over comfort and function, but as people age, there is a shift towards valuing comfort and functionality in shoes. It is important not to wait for pain and discomfort to become persistent problems in later life. Our feet are diverse in shape and size, but if you experience persistent foot pain or issues that affect your daily life, it is suggested that you schedule an appointment with a podiatrist who can provide the necessary treatment and contribute to a healthier and more comfortable future.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Edward Orman, DPM from Honeygo Podiatry. Our doctor 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.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact our offices located in Perry Hall, and Fallston, MD . We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
