New Year’s Resolutions for Your Feet
 

At this time of year when many people are making a commitment to self-improvement, we at Central Jersey Ankle & Foot Care Specialists believe that the health of your feet is a worthy subject for resolutions. Although often taken for granted, your feet are what carries your entire body and enables you to work, play and do all the activities you need and want to do.

Below are our top suggestions for New Year’s resolutions that will benefit your feet:

Commit to a Foot Care Regimen—regular care of your feet can keep them healthy and prevent several disorders and infections. Your hygiene plan should include daily washing—and drying—of your feet as well as moisturizing and using a foot powder if excess perspiration is an issue for you. Nails should be checked weekly and trimmed straight across and not too short to prevent ingrown toenails from developing. In addition, regular inspections of your feet should be done to look for changes in color and shape as well as any unusual growths, bruises, swelling, nail abnormalities or anything else that may signal a foot problem. Report changes to our podiatrists, Dr. Christopher J. Mullin, Dr. Jessica A. Addeo or Dr. Rajan Patel. Patients have been able to head off many potentially serious problems with early detection and prompt treatment.

Increase Exercise and Watch What You Eat—this may already be on your list of New Year’s resolutions but it’s important to note that this will benefit your feet too. Carrying excess weight puts pressure on your feet and can increase your risk for plantar fasciitis, flat feet and other disorders. Avoiding sugars and refined flours will help with weight control and also decrease inflammation in your foot and ankle joints. Regular exercise will help keep a good blood flow to your feet as well as allow foot muscles and tendons to stay flexible.

Take Necessary Safety Precautions—resolve not to take chances with the safety and health of your feet. Avoid going barefoot to prevent puncture wounds and cuts as well as fungal infections. Don’t wear shoes that are worn out or inappropriate for the weather or activity that you are doing. Take the time to apply sunscreen when feet will be exposed.

Last but not least, resolve to deal with foot pain promptly to avoid potentially disabling conditions. Contact our Aberdeen office for an appointment by calling: 732-566-2841.
