What are some tips on avoiding foot problems?
One of the best ways to prevent foot problems is to check your feet daily, especially if you have circulatory problems or diseases like diabetes. Pay attention to your toenails, heels and balls of your feet. If you’re older look for age-related issues. These could include arthritis, heel pads wearing out and hammertoes.
Another important factor in your foot health is your footwear. It’s very important to achieve the proper fit! Always be sure your shoes aren’t too tight and go shopping at the end of the day. This way, your feet are the most swollen and you can be sure your shoes will fit at all times. Having good arch support is important as well. Flip-flops and stilettos are definitely not the best footwear choices.
