SUMMER IS A PROBLEMATIC SEASON FOR FEET

During the summer months, when people are walking or working barefoot or in flip-flops, the Foothill Podiatry Clinic tends to see more injuries made by “foreign bodies” in feet, along with various contusions and fractured toes. Toenail fungus is also a common complaint in summer months, because people want to wear open-toed footwear, Dr. Steven Latter noted. People also tend to be more active in summer, hiking, running, riding, or participating in various sports.

Dr. Latter suggests that we can protect our feet with better footwear. “I’m not against flip-flops,” he said. “I just encourage people to find them with an arch support appropriate to their needs.” Unfortunately, feet come in many varieties ranging from flat to high-arched. The higher the arch, the more support is needed.
