Foot care tips for the Spring

Foot care tips for the Spring

Long winter months are almost over and spring is just around the corner! Are you excited?

Well we at Indiana Podiatry Group definitely are!!!

With the arrival of spring and summer comes an increase in physical activities, for most people, and we need to make sure our feet are ready for the extra mileage!

Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

1. Continue to moisturize your feet daily, and avoid putting any moisturizing lotion in between toes.
2. Look at your toe nails, if they look yellow or discolored, contact our office and see a podiatrist.
3. Get your spring shoes out of the closet and inspect them, if they look or feel worn out, consider getting some new shoes for spring.
4.If you have flat feet, heel pain, or any other areas of foot or ankle pain or concern, call our office and see a podiatrist for all your foot and ankle needs!

I am always looking for your feedback; you can contact me through our webpage or Facebook page!

Have a great and safe spring!

Heel pain can have many causes. Please see our website and look up Plantar Fasciitis as the most common cause. See if this sounds like you. Certainly, if indicated, there are many stretches to help with this condition, but the hallmark is really to determine the underlying cause, likely structural, and treat that. Over the counter inserts sometimes help a little, but not really recommended as usually not strong enough. If painful and limiting, this needs attention and examination. Thanks for writing. In 25 years, I have never seen anyone with dry skin between the toes, due to heat, friction, and moisture/sweat buildup. I have seen a lot of problems, fungal infections, etc, from being too moist. This area rarely if ever needs lotion, and too much can lead to break down of skin and associated problems. Hope this helps. Scott L. Schulman, DPM Indiana Podiatry Group

I've started having heel pain since I began working at a warehouse. I know it's because I walk around for so much of the day, but I don't know how to fix that. I need to talk to a podiatrist to see if there's some kind of insert or stretch that would help.

Why shouldn't you put lotion in between your toes? I've never heard that before. I put lotion on my feet all the time because my heels are so dry. I don't usually put it on my toes, but I don't really watch out for that either. Maybe I'll be more careful from now on.

These are great foot care tips for the spring. I'll have to try moisturizing my feet daily. They tend to get dry and start cracking. Hopefully moisturizing them will help to solve that problem. All your tips are very helpful, thank you for posting them. http://www.cincinnatifootcare.com/dr-titko
