Swollen feet can be painful, and it is important to understand what is causing them so you know how to treat them. Some of the most common causes of swollen feet are standing too often, weight gain, improper footwear, poor circulation, and infection. If you have a job that requires you to do a lot of standing, you should try to incorporate a break into your shift so that you can rest. Elevating your feet can help the blood start to flow properly and therefore cause the swelling to go away. If the swelling in your feet doesn’t go away, you may need to make an appointment with your doctor in order to receive treatment.
Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Jordan Rachlin from Monroe Foot Care. 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.
