  • Dr. John A. Hardy’s Toronto Foot Clinic shares 4 Tips for Healthy Feet
Healthy FeetDespite how essential feet are to everyday life, they often go neglected. Toronto Chiropodist Marz Hardy, D.Ch., B.Sc., Podiatric Medicine wants foot care to become a priority in people’s daily lives. Below is a list of her top four foot care techniques:
 
 
 

1. Get the Right Footwear for Your Feet

 
Many Foot Specialists recommend owning at least three pairs of shoes and alternating when you wear them. Never wear the same pair of shoes more than two days in a row. When it comes to shoes, finding the proper fit and function can go a long way in promoting long-term foot wellness. People with flat feet should look for shoes to improve their stability; for those with high arches, cushioned, shock-absorbing footwear is a must.
 
 
 

2. Keep Your Feet Fit

 
Just like any other part of the body, feet require regular workouts to remain fit and healthy. Staying active helps your feet stay in shape but can also wear them down. The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society recommends doing simple toe exercises daily to strengthen your toes and prevent foot discomfort.
 
 
 

3. Treat Your Feet

 
Feet are tough, but also sensitive, and they need to be treated with care. The best way to avoid fungal infection and calluses is to practice good foot hygiene. Wash your feet regularly with a mild soap, taking care to scrub between toes, and dry them completely once you have rinsed off all the soap. Clip toenails straight across; cutting nails on the sides or corners promotes ingrown toenails. As people with diabetes are more prone to infection, they should let a professional handle their pedicures.
 
 
 

4. Visit a Foot Specialist Regularly

 
Pain in the foot or growth on or around the foot region is considered abnormal, and should be checked out by a Chiropodist. Regular visits to the foot care specialist are an essential part of any foot care regimen, as these practitioners are able to perform general wellness exams and other screenings for potentially severe foot conditions.
