childrens feetOur feet are especially important in ensuring that our bodies are able to function properly in everyday activities. As our feet contain “26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments,” we should have our feet checked often and address any conditions that may arise immediately. Properly-fitting shoes are important in ensuring that your feet are comfortable. Knowing your foot type, whether you have a low arch or a high arch, should determine if you need shoes that have cushioning and support. Over-the-counter inserts and orthotics are also helpful in treating foot conditions such as flat feet.

Regardless of season or weather, everyday foot care should be practiced year round. For more information about everyday foot care, consult with Dr. James Ricketti of New Jersey. Dr. Ricketti will provide you with the foot- and ankle information you seek.

Everyday Foot Care

Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. After all, without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks. It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before, for example.

For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops.

Also, wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.
