At Feet First Foot Care Specialists, we’re wondering, if the feet of our Middlesex County patients could make a wish list for the holidays, what would be on it? It might go something like this:

Dear Santa,

Well, another year is coming to a close, which means I’ve walked another 1,400 miles! I have been good this year. I take my owner wherever she needs to go—and believe me, that’s a lot of places during this busy holiday season! Sometimes, however, I get achy and tired, and there are a few items on my wish list. In no particular order, here are a few of the gifts I’d love to find under the tree this year:

Foot Massager—it would be so lovely after a day of work or shopping to slip my feet into an electric foot massager and feel the stress melt away. I know maintaining good circulation is also essential for healthy feet, and regular massaging would certainly help with that.

Moisturizing Socks—when the heat goes on, my skin gets dry and flaky. I saw they now make socks that contain moisturizing gel in them. I would love to slip those on before I go to bed and let that moisturizer work its way into my heels which tend to get painful cracks in the winter.

Anti-Fatigue Mat—I try not to complain about when I stand at the sink prepping vegetables and fruits for family meals and cleaning the dishes afterward. Still, an anti-fatigue mat would make those chores so much more enjoyable. The cushiony comfort and slight movements those mats would cause me to make would leave my feet feeling way less tired when kitchen work is done.

New Shoes— I think my owner forgets that shoes do have a lifespan. Even though our go-to athletic shoes still look pretty good, I notice lately the insole cushioning feels compacted, and the arch isn’t as supportive as when we originally bought them. I’m sure it’s been over 500 miles in them, and I know they’re past due for replacing.

If it’s possible to bring me one or more of these items, Santa, I would appreciate it. And don’t forget something special for my owner too. She takes good care of me and always contacts the Cromwell office by calling 860-632-5499 to bring me to see our podiatrist, Dr. Adam Mucinskas, at the first sign of foot pains or problems.

Happy Holidays to you and Mrs. Claus,

Jennie’s Feet

At Feet First Foot Care Specialists, we know that if you’re making your list and checking it twice, you’ve probably noticed that your feet have been awfully nice this year. Why not consider a gift that shows your appreciation for these incredible structures and all that they enable you to do every day of the year?foot care gifts

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.
