It is freezing outside! But, even during the frigid temps and gloomy days of winter the action never stops here at Advanced Podiatry.  

One of the most common questions our patients have is in regard to the use of custom orthotics in their ski boots. Our patients LOVE their orthotics. Most use them for all activities and have multiple pairs for specific activities.  So, ski season is no different! 
 
We can fabricate a custom made device designed for use in ski boots. This allows our patients to have the same type of of comfort and support they have come to expect from our world-class orthotic devices.  
 
January is also a great time to come in and be evaluated for new orthotics for spring and summer as well. Our custom made, graphite-polymer devices are made from scratch and ordering them now ensures you are ready to go when the weather starts to warm up a bit.  It will before you know it! 
 
Regardless, of whether your love the snow covered slopes of Vermont or the sun kissed shores of the beach the team at Advanced Podiatry is here to help. 
 
Call today for your appointment!

Tags: Hyperhidrosis  
Do you have sweaty feet- also known as hyperhidrosis? People with hyperhidrosis have sweat glands that activate sooner and remain active for longer periods of time than others. They produce significantly more sweat than what would typically be expected, and they do it more often than people who do not have the condition. Hyperhidrosis can appear anywhere that the body has sweat glands; usually in the armpits, the face/head, or the palms of the hands. When it appears on the feet, it is known as plantar hyperhidrosis. When the feet are regularly damp and sweaty, other problematic situations can occur- including nail fungus, athlete’s foot (tinea pedis), and unpleasant foot odor from bacteria.
 
Everyone with hyperhidrosis experiences different triggers, including hot weather, exercise, stress, and/or illness. Shoes and socks made of non-breathable fabrics can also be a factor. 
 
What steps can you take to keep your sweaty feet dry and odor-free? Here are some tips: 
 
Practice good foot hygiene. Clean and dry your feet post shower/bathing. 
 
Use foot powder or cornstarch to absorb sweat and moisture. 
 
Apply an antiperspirant to your feet. Ask about the roll-on we carry in the office! 
 
Always wear clean, dry socks. Change socks mid day or after activities if needed. 
 
When possible, choose open shoes such as sandals, and those made of fabrics that allow feet to “breathe”. 
 
Are you suffering with hyperhidrosis? You are not alone, please call one of our offices and make an appointment to be evaluated. 

Your feet are the foundation of an active lifestyle. But, if diabetes has been damaging the nerves of your lower extremities, you may begin experiencing peripheral neuropathy-numbness, tingling, or burning in the feet and the and the toes.
 
With the loss of feeling comes other serious risks such as loss of balance leading to frequent falls and open sores on the feet, causing possible amputation.
 
Once numbness sets in, you are now also at greater risk of falling. In fact, your risk of falling triples if you have a nerve disorder such as peripheral neuropathy. If you fall once, it doubles your chances of falling again. One in five falls causes serious injury, with 18,000 fatalities yearly in older adults according to the CDC.
