PODIATRIST RECOMMENDS BAREFOOT THERAPY AT HOME

No matter who walks (or limps) into her office at Midtown Podiatry with a foot injury, Dr. Emily Splichal offers the same prescription: barefoot therapy. “When I send patients to physical therapy, on [the prescription] I’m saying, ‘Must be barefoot.’ It’s the foundation of every patient’s rehab,” Splichal said.

For patients who don’t require physical therapy, Splichal has them brush their teeth while barefoot and balancing on one leg. “When people think about barefoot, they think about running,” she said. “But I don’t want them to — I want them to think about training, rehab, performance.” Splichal recommends strengthening the foot and ankle via a series of at-home exercises — done barefoot, of course.
