‘Tis the season for shopping, cooking, baking, wrapping, and mailing, and at Feet First Foot Care Specialists, we know that means our Middlesex County patients’ feet will be working overtime.

Return the favor by taking a few simple steps to keep your feet healthy and pain-free:

  • Don’t Play the Fool with Footwear—shoes and boots with thin, spiky heels and narrow pointy toe boxes are never good for your feet. They can cause bunions, hammertoes, ingrown toenails, and other foot problems and should only wear for short periods. Choose styles with wide toe, boxes, cushioned insoles, and good arch support for everyday wear and get to and from any holiday events. Pack your festive footwear and change when you arrive.

  • Relax and Take a Load Off—don’t overdo it! Schedule time between tasks to rest and elevate your feet if possible. Plan ahead so you’re not rushing—this will reduce the risk of missing a curb, slipping on an icy patch, or another potential scenario where you can suffer an ankle sprain or other injury.

  • Stay cool and Dry—it’s easy for feet to get overheated and perspire with the heat on in cars, offices, and stores. Make sure you change your socks if you notice they feel damp. Fungal infections thrive in moist, dark places if your feet sweat excessively.  Dust with an anti-fungal powder, or use an antiperspirant roll-on or spray before putting your socks on.

  • Be Sweet and Give Them a Treat—you’re taking care of everyone else on your list.  Why not consider a little something special for your feet? A relaxing massage, new moisturizing cream, or an anti-fatigue mat are all ways to show you care and increase the comfort level of your feet this holiday season.

If you begin to experience any new foot symptoms or chronic podiatric problems act up, contact our Cromwell office by calling: (860) 632-5499 and have your feet seen by our podiatrist, Dr. Adam Mucinskas.
