3 Ways to Keep Your Feet Healthy, Manhattan, New York

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends every individual walk for at least 150 minutes per day. The equates to around 7,000 steps every 24 hours. With this figure in mind, your feet will be hitting the pavement constantly throughout your life which means foot care is essential to avoid unnecessary aches and pains. If you haven’t seen a foot doctor recently, here are some tips to ensure your feet stay healthy. 

Top 3 Ways to Maintain Healthy Feet

1. Wear the Right Shoes

While it may be tempting to wear heels and shoes that pinch in the name of fashion, uncomfortable footwear can lead to hammer toes and heel and arch pain. To avoid unnecessary trips to the foot doctor, wear heels and other uncomfortable shoes as little as possible. Instead, stick to breathable shoes that give you the right amount of arch support.  

2. Take Precautions in Public Spaces

Foot DoctorPublic areas like swimming pools, locker rooms, and group fitness studios have heavy foot traffic, often without shoes present. This can make you susceptible to athlete’s foot, warts, and fungal infections. To avoid the risk, always wear flip-flops in these areas and make sure your feet are fully dry before putting on socks and shoes. 

3. Trim Nails Properly

Ingrown toenails can be quite painful. By trimming your nails on a regular basis straight across and not too close to the skin, you can avoid nail growth into foot tissue that’s red and uncomfortable.
