Take Care of Your Feet Now With These 4 Tips

Properly trimmed nails

For many, taking care of their feet is something that is typically overlooked when considering their yearly medical checklist. Most people are resolute about scheduling their annual dental appointments, check-ups, and eye exams, but an annual foot check is usually not on a lot of people’s radar. Today Dr. Hubert Lee of CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists is sharing some tips for maintaining proper foot health.

 

  1. Examine your feet daily. Performing daily foot checks is something that many people often skip in their daily foot care routine. Each morning when you wake up, or at night before you go to bed, examine your feet to make sure there isn’t anything out of the ordinary, such as:

 

  1. Stretch your feet. This is one of the easiest ways to keep your feet healthy. Stretching every day will help strengthen your feet, and boost blood flow and circulation. 

 

  1. Trim your toenails properly. Some tips for proper toenail trimming include:

 

  1. Wear proper footwear. Wearing the right shoes makes a big difference in providing your feet with the best care. Your feet must be properly supported, especially if your daily routine requires you to be on your feet for long periods of time. Choose comfort and support over style when it comes to picking out shoes, but if you must reach for that ballet flat or stiletto, wear them for as little time as possible.

 

If you’ve been experiencing any of these – or any other foot issues - contact the office of Dr. Hubert Lee at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists at (425) 455-0936 to book your visit or schedule an appointment online
