Spring is here! At Advanced Podiatry, we are so excited the winter months are finally behind us. With the arrival of warmer weather, we take our activities outside and become more active. Here are some foot care tips that will ready you for the warmer weather:

  • Perform daily foot checks-- especially if you are a Diabetic. Check in between your toes and on the bottom of your feet for any cuts, skin changes, blisters, or redness.
  • Moisturize: Moisturize your feet daily and make sure you rub it in really well. Avoid in between the toes so the area doesn’t get wet and susceptible to infections.
  • Examine your toenails. If they look thickened, brittle, discolored or are lifting please call us so that we can examine them. These may be signs of a fungus attacking your nail.
  • Make sure your shoe gear and orthotics are ready! If your shoes or orthotics look and feel worn out and unstable, it may be a good idea to consider investing in a new pair. If you need orthotics for your feet - whether you have flat feet, pain in the ball of your feet, or any other foot and ankle pain, give us a call so that we can help you!

Have a happy and safe spring!

Tags: foot care tips   Superbowl  
We are two weeks from a face off of two stellar quarterbacks in Supberbowl LI. This is always an exciting time of year for sports fans everywhere.  Tom Brady has been at it for almost 20 years dominating the NFL.  So how does he do it?  
 
He takes superb care of his body.  He follows a strict diet, sometimes totally vegan.  He has a regular physical therapy routine and very regimented fitness regime. 
 
The Superbowl happens to come at the beginning of February which is when many of us fall of the fitness bandwagon.  Part of that drop off in physical activity if due to new onset aches and pains.  Issues like ankle sprains, plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis and painful bunions are just a few of the issues that plague new athletes. Instead of seeing a doctor and getting evaluated people often times just give in and think they aren't cut out for exercise.  
 
Don't give up! If you have pain, come in and see us now!  Stretching exercises, injections, orthotics can all help!  Remember, if you want to get in shape and stay in shape you don't have to be as strict as Tom Brady, but you definitely can't give up.
