‘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.

Proper support for your feet can make a lasting difference. Without proper support, uneven weight distribution to the feet could occur. In particular, orthotics can help prevent severe conditions and correct unequal weight distribution spread across the feet. Our podiatrist, Adam Mucinskas, D.P.M., can help you with a custom feeling orthotic. Come and visit Dr. Mucinskas at the Feet First Foot Care Specialists, LLC, located in Cromwell, CT

 

Orthotics help feet maintain an unbiased position which helps your knees and lower back line up correctly. This will help the body to function correctly and decrease potential pain. They can even help reduce knee pain because it’s related to the arch not maintaining the joint in an unbiased position. Custom orthotics support the arch to prevent unequal weight distribution that can cause uneven pressure along the foot. These pressure points may lead to swelling that can cause substantial un-comfort. Orthotics can help to spread your weight consistently along the foot and reduce pressure points, and help the rest of the body to heal. Our orthotics will help to reduce pressure points at the heel and spread body weight over the entire surface area of the foot.

 

Our use of state of the art technology allows us to provide your feet with a custom feeling orthotic that will act to minimize pain unique to your feet. By using our orthotics, you will help to minimize heel pain brought about by unequal pressure points. 

 

For those experiencing uneven pressure points in their feet, we will provide you with the best chance of preventing serous pain by fitting you with a custom orthotic tailored to fit the curves of your feet. Contact or make an appointment with our offices by calling as soon as possible. Take the opportunity to visit Dr. Mucinskas to receive the best option for treatment and pain reduction.
