If you are reading this, you likely have over 125,000 miles on your feet. Some days they may feel like it, but here are some ideas to make your feet feel younger.

  • You should be wearing well cushioned, soft soled shoes all the time. Even dress shoes now have these soft soles. Laced shoes are better than slip-ons.

  • Elevating your feet at the end of the day or after a long walk is helpful. For added cushioning in your shoes, try SpencoR insoles. They should be the thin flat insoles that sell at sports stores or some drugstores.

  • Over-the-counter arch supports won’t do much for you. If you have sore feet, a prescription orthotic device designed from casts of your feet and precise measurements will give you the support and correction of your foot structure that you may need. Chiropodists do biomechanical foot examinations and can prescribe these for you.

  • Corns and callouses can be painful. Don’t use razor blades or other tools to get rid of them. A Chiropodist can easily and painlessly treat these for you to give you immediate relief.

  • If you do use corn pads, make sure they are not medicated so that you do not damage the surrounding skin and cause infections, making the problem worse.

  • Consider using moisturizing cream if your feet are dry or if you are getting scaling or cracking of your feet or heels.

  • Try changing your socks a couple of times during the day and even changing your shoes.

  • Try some gentle stretching exercises for your feet by pointing your toes up and down, doing circles with your feet and this keeps the motion going.

Many veterans think they’re “over the hill” and it is too late to do anything about foot pain. But in fact, it is never too late to get relief from pain in your feet an this can be accomplished without surgery.

Walking is great exercise, and comfortable feet can made a big difference!
