What are you doing this season to keep your feet happy? Look down for a moment and thank your feet for all the fun you were able to have this summer. Now, let’s focus. Fall is not the time to put healthy foot practices in your beach bag. Every season, foot care should be your priority.
Dr. Anant Joshi at Advanced Foot Care of NJ, LLC has a few tips this season to guarantee that your feet will stay happy and healthy as the leaves fall — and the temperatures do the same. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, our encouragement is to take it one habit at a time.
Follow these tips for your feet this fall:
Figure out the problem
Do you know what’s causing your foot pain? If you’ve noticed changes to your feet, do you know the reasons behind the new symptoms? These are all questions you should address this season. There’s no need to wait until the holidays — or even worse, the new year. Figure out what’s causing your discomfort now. It’s worth your time.
Face the music
Guess what? Your shoes may be the issue. You may be bringing some unhealthy habits along as you place shoes in your shopping bag. Have you had your feet measured professionally? Do blisters and bunions bring you pain? It’s a very common cause, but we often overlook the weight of shoe selection.
Find a podiatrist
If you are going to figure out the problem, you must find a podiatrist. A podiatrist is a foot and ankle specialist, and they are your go-to for problems influencing your foot pain. We love encouraging patients to visit a podiatrist before they have foot pain. It brings us joy to help you prevent a foot problem from developing or worsening. You will be amazed how a few tips can come from one visit.
