Foot Care Tips For Those Who Stand All Day

Tuesday, 29 May 2018 00:00

High quality shoes can prove to be very beneficial for those who have jobs that require standing for long periods of time. When you are standing, your body has to work extra hard in order to circulate blood back to your heart. This can result in swelling and aching in the lower extremities.  Fortunately, there are ways you can treat feet that are weary from being used all day. The first tip is to elevate your feet when you get home. Elevating the feet allows them to receive the proper circulation they failed to receive throughout the day. It is also helpful to soak the feet in hot water with essential oils, to alleviate muscle tension from the long work day. Lastly, massages have also been found to relieve fatigue in the lower limbs.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Amy Dunetz from Amy Dunetz, DPM, MS. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Everyday Foot Care

Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. Without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks.

It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before. For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops. Wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent Athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.
