foot pain4If your children are avid sports athletes, it’s important to ensure and promote safety and important injury prevention tips. The risk of injury becomes greater when the contact in the sport is higher. Overuse is also another factor that can increase the risk of sports injuries. Ensuring the health of your children’s feet involves taking breaks as necessary, wearing the proper gear for the sport they’re playing, strengthening and training muscles, increasing flexibility through stretching exercises, staying hydrated, and using the proper technique and adhering to the rules when playing.

Regardless of season or weather, everyday foot care should be practiced year round. For more information about everyday foot care, contact Dr. James Ricketti of New Jersey. Dr. Ricketti will treat your foot and ankle needs.

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.
