The Art of Mastering Tips

Care and Protection of Feet. Taking good care of the feet by preventing any damage or taking corrective measures on already injured feet is appropriate foot care for all individuals regardless of their age bracket. All the weight of an individual is anchored by the feet while standing and walking hence proper foot care should be enhanced. Shoes that do not fit properly and are poorly designed for the feet can be quite uncomfortable and this is a major cause of foot problems. Good shoes should mostly be purchased during the afternoon or evening since as the day proceeds, feet tend to swell therefore well-fitting shoes during the time are always considered well-fitting at all times. When the joint at the base of the big toes are out of line with the others and become swollen and tender, bunions develop. The bunions come about as a result of wearing poorly-fitting shoes with elevated heels and narrow toe-box that press on the deformed toe or the bunion can be inherited. Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition of the feet brought about by wearing the wrong choice of shoes which makes the band tissues located underneath the sole of the foot thickens. The main causes of plantar fasciitis include the abrupt change of wearing raised shoes to flat shoes, wearing shoes that cannot provide sufficient arch support with thin soles, increase in body weight, change of one’s form of exercise and increased intensity of one’s exercise. Friction between the feet and the shoe causes corns and calluses hence proper filling shoes should be adopted. There are different varieties of bunion correctors including toe separators which are placed between the big toe and one next to it to help in proper arrangement of the big toe. Bunion sleeves helps to protect the foot from friction decreasing bunion pain, realigns the big toe to it position and also reduces tension in the feet ligaments. Planar fasciitis support using heel cushion and pads, wearing arch and foot supports as well as stretching the foot to ease tension are major ways of correcting planar fasciitis. Bacterial and fungal infection of the foot including athlete foot which is due to wearing shoes that do not allow air circulation hence are damp and warm is another common foot problem. Proper air circulation in the feet and ensuring the area between the toes is always clean and dry helps prevent athlete’s foot. Persistent fungicidal infection is controlled by dusting the feet using fungicidal dust. Moisturizers with petroleum jelly or lanolin should always be applied to the feet to provide proper care. Ensuring proper circulation of blood in the feet prevents problems by reducing long periods of sitting and smoking to ensure proper feet care.Doing Wellness The Right Way
