Oscar winning actress Halle Berry broke her foot after falling at a house she was renting in Spain while filming “Cloud Atlas” earlier this year.  The injury required her to use a wheelchair during recovery.  Berry was back on set as soon as the cast was removed and refused to let the foot injury hold her back.  Disaster almost struck twice as one of the first scenes she had to film after the injury involved perching precariously on a rock in the middle of a river.  Perhaps due to her previous injury, Berry slipped during the shooting of the scene but did not let the pain prevent her from finishing the shoot.

Berry’s job may have been the reason she did not give herself a long recovery time, but that does not mean that allowing a proper recovery time as well as doing specific things to take care of your feet is not crucial.  Berry was lucky to avoid re-injuring her foot and perhaps she would not have had such a close call if she was following every day foot care tips.  If you think you may have sustained a foot injury you should seek out the care of a podiatrist such as Dr. James Ricketti of New Jersey.  Dr. Ricketti can diagnose any injuries you may have as well as provide you with treatment options and ways to properly care for your feet.

Every Day 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. Also make sure that the socks fit properly and are not uncomfortably tight.
