New Shoes

This is not just a nod to current fashions. Your shoes are probably the single biggest factor in protecting the health of your feet. Get your feet professionally measured—it’s not unusual for shoe size to increase as you age. Choose a pair that is well made of natural and breathable materials (to help prevent fungal infections) with good arch support and a cushioned insole for comfort. Keep heel height to two inches or less to avoid undue pressure to the forefoot and toes, which can increase the risk of bunions and ingrown toenails.

Anti-Fatigue Mat

If you have a job that requires you to stand many hours each day or you find yourself in front of the kitchen sink or somewhere else in your home for long periods of time, treat yourself to an anti-fatigue mat. These thick and extra cushiony mats can help reduce fatigue and pain in your feet, ankles and lower extremities.

Foot Massage

Nothing feels better than a foot massage. Reflexology is an ancient Chinese practice which subscribes to the belief that different areas of your feet have a corresponding relationship to other parts of the body. A reflexology massage is thought to have the ability to have a beneficial effect on circulation, energy levels and organ health. Plus, it just feels so good and can relieve stress.

Podiatric Checkup

If you are suffering pain or discomfort in your feet or ankles, the best gift you can give yourself is a visit with our podiatrist Dr. Adam Mucinskas. The foot doctor will examine your feet and ankles, take a complete medical history and provide a prompt diagnosis of your podiatric problem along with a treatment plan designed specifically for you. To make an appointment at our Cromwell office, call (860) 632-5499.
