Get Ready For Back To School With Fresh Kicks!

On the Feet First Clinic blog this month, we’ve spent a lot of time talking about how great it is to get out during the summer and take an epic walk in the park. If you have a serious foot condition, however, or you need help with an ingrown toenail and haven’t gotten it yet, the simple act of taking a walk can be excruciating or even outright impossible. The good news is that there are plenty of tools in modern medicine to get your feet fixed up and ready for summer, all you need to do is ask! Sometimes a course of treatment can play out over several weeks or months, so while it may not be realistic to expect a miracle cure, you’ll at least be able to sleep soundly at night knowing that everything’s moving in the right direction.

Once you’ve had your foot condition treated – whether it’s swelling, deep vein thrombosis, pain or toenail fungus – the trick is to take good care of your feet to make sure that you don’t relapse. Our number one priority at Feet First Clinic is to help you walk correctly by employing our video gait analysis and getting to the root of the problem. Once we’ve outfitted you with custom orthotics and selected a walking shoe that is compatible with your unique feet, you’re off to the races. Conditions such as athletes foot, corns, warts and fungus, on the other hand, are issues that can easily reappear after treatment if you are at a high risk.

Helping to treat your condition is the first step in the journey of education that will help you take care of your own feet and keep those nasty problems away. Here are three great ways to look after your feet to keep them healthy and happy!

 

Flip-Flops in the Locker Room: If you go to a public gym and use the facilities, make sure that you wear flip-flops. Especially if you’re going to be hanging out around the pool, in the hot tub or the steam room: it is extremely common to end up with warts on your feet if you’re not careful. While ourchiropodists can treat your warts on your feet, they can’t prevent you from getting them, so grab a cheap pair of flip-flops and remember to pack them when you hit the gym.

 

Foot Rubz: For a reasonable eleven bucks, you can purchase yourself a Foot Rubz massage ball that will bring an immeasurable amount of comfort and relief to your feet. You can do this in your bedroom or your living room, really anywhere. A  Foot Rubz massage ball is easy to travel with, so you can give yourself a foot massage anywhere you go! Rolling the ball against arches, heels and balls of your feet will release built-up pressure you didn’t even know was there!

Buy Some Compression Socks: One of the best all-around foot care solutions in Toronto involves wearing compression socks. These socks increase circulation, thus reducing and preventing swelling. They are also sweat-wicking to help prevent fungus and athlete’s foot and are available in several different styles so you can feel at ease at home, at work or at the gym!
