April is Foot Health Awareness Month
 

At Central Jersey Ankle & Foot Care SpecialistsApril is one of our favorite months! Not only can we hope to start to finally see some warmer weather, but it’s also Foot Health Awareness Month and a great time for us to remind patients of the importance of good podiatric care.

Below are some ways to take better care of your feet:

Get Your Daily Dose- of good hygiene and foot care that is. In as little as 5 minutes, you can perform a few simple tasks that will go a long way in preventing foot problems. Wash feet in soapy, warm water and dry completely (don’t miss the spaces between your toes—dampness there encourages the growth of fungal infections). Apply a rich moisturizer to your feet and heels. Check that nails are trimmed and not jagged. Dust feet with foot powder before putting on clean socks if you tend to sweat excessively.

Wear the Right Shoes- this is one of the single most important things you can do to protect your feet. Get your feet professionally measured (foot size can change as you age) and don’t wear shoes once they’ve begun to show signs of wear. Also, always wear the right shoes for the activity you will be doing. Different sports require different foot and ankle movements and if you participate in one activity regularly, it’s worth investing in a pair of shoes specifically designed for that sport.

Pass the Self- Exam- regularly inspecting your feet (top and bottom) for changes and abnormalities can help you spot foot problems in their earliest stages. Look for bruises, lumps or bumps, rashes, redness or discoloration and changes in size, shape, and temperature of your feet. Report anything unusual to our podiatrists, Dr. Christopher J. Mullinor Dr. Jessica A. Addeofor further evaluation.

Live Healthy- eating properly and maintaining a healthy weight along with regular exercise and getting an appropriate amount of rest benefits your feet as well as the rest of your body. Carrying excess pounds increases both the risk and severity of many foot disorders and overuse is a primary cause of foot pain.
