PODIATRIST. JAMES CHRISTINA, THE DIRECTOR OF SCIENTIFIC AFFAIRS AT THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION STATES, "LOOK FOR A PAIR OF SOCKS MADE FROM MOISTURE-WICKING BLEND OF SYNTHETIC MICROFIBRES."

IN A STUDY IN 'MILITARY MEDICINE', OFFICER CADETS WHO WORE PADDED SOCKS  MADE OF A POLY BLEND WERE THE LEAST LIKELY TO DEVELOP FOOT BLISTERS.

PODIATRIST CHRISTINA STATES, "MAKE SURE YOUR SHOES ARE FITTING PROPERLY.  YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE EXCESSIVE SLIPPAGE IN THE HEEL OF YOUR SHOE, AND THERE SHOULD BE ADEQUATE ROOM IN THE SHOE'S TOE-BOX FOR YOUR TOES TO REST COMFORTABLY.  IF A BLISTER BALLOONS, RESIST THE TEMPTATION TO POP IT.  LET IT DRAIN ON ITS OWN BECAUSE OPENING IT WILL INCREASE YOUR RISK OF INFECTION."

PEOPLE IN GENERAL DO NOT TAKE PROPER CARE OF THEIR FEET.  DIABETICS IN PARTICULAR SHOULD MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE UNDER THE CARE OF A FOOT SPECIALIST. YOUR FEET ARE VERY IMPORTANT AND WITHOUT THEM WE DO NOT GET VERY FAR.  IT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT WE TAKE FOR GRANTED.  

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
