Now that we’re past the halfway point of 2023, it’s a good idea to reflect on our habits. How have you been doing with your foot and ankle health this year? Are you keeping a consistent foot care routine, or do you find yourself slipping often? Do you have any recent foot conditions that could’ve been avoided with extra attention to your foot health? The doctors here at Advanced Foot Care of NJ encourage their patients to take the lead in their podiatric health. The best way to do that? Commit to annual check-ups with your podiatrist, and most importantly, prioritize daily foot care. Let’s take a closer look.
Are daily foot checks part of your everyday routine? Establishing this healthy habit is one of the best ways to maintain your healthy podiatric goals. Spotting early symptoms gives doctors more time to treat or even delay worsening symptoms.
Appointments Are Necessary
It may be hard to see that podiatry appointments are as important as other medical visits. From optometry appointments to dental check-ups, total health includes foot and ankle health. If you have diabetes, podiatrists are most likely a part of your care team. Do you find yourself keeping your appointments, or do you push them to the side?
Consider Your Shoes
One of the most common causes of foot pain is wearing the wrong size or style of shoes. Are you choosing your shoes wisely? There are many ways to shop smart for your shoes, from checking your shoe size before you shop to trying them on at the end of the day. We also recommend using orthotics to help with your unique condition. Our custom orthotics are made just for you and your foot condition.
