Our feet are one of the most important parts of our body. Without them we would not be able to walk and do many of the activities we take for granted. They carry our whole body weight, and therefore are under a huge amount of pressure every day! 

Taking good care of our feet is very important. Thinking about the pressure they have literally thrust upon them day in , day out , when our feet are not at their best, not only can it cause us discomfort on our feet but it can affect our knees, our hips and our entire spine! 

Here are some top tips for having healthy happy feet! 

* Good foot hygiene! Make sure you wash your feet regularly but most importantly, dry them well! Foot fungus such as Athletes Foot, love warm, moist, sweaty feet! By ensuring you keep them clean and by drying them well you cut the risk of getting Fungal Infections.

* Wear good fitting footwear! We are all guilty of wearing fashionable shoes and wanting our feet to be in the latest trends! These are not always the best shoes for our feet and can cause us to get Corns, Blisters , Athletes Foot , Fungal Infections , Ingrowing toenails, and Bunions. Our feet are most happiest out of shoes! By getting our feet regularly measured and fitted by a professional in a shoe shop and also shopping for shoes at the end of a day to allow for natural swelling when being measured, we can help cut the risk of getting some of these uncomfortable foot problems! 

* Examine your feet regularly. Check for blisters , and corns, scratches and dry skin and check your nails for any discolouration. Nails can tell you a lot about your health of your whole body so be aware of any changes! 

* If you are Diabetic it is very important to get your feet checked out by a Foot Health Care Practitioner! It is advised that children with Diabetes get their feet checked at least once a year by a professional. Adults with the condition ideally should be seen every 6-8 weeks. This is important because diabetes can lead to circulatory problems and any wounds on their feet can take much longer to heal. 

* Lastly, if you have any discomfort on you feet, get them checked over! That troublesome corn that hurts when you walk is no doubt changing the way you walk , this will have an adverse affect on your posture and that can have a spiralling affect through your skeletal system. That painful corn on your foot setting you off balance could be the reason your hips are hurting, or why you have been getting headaches! 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any discomfort with your feet!
