New Year’s Resolutions for Healthy Feet

When people make New Year’s resolutions, they often pick ones that are related to health. Eating better, exercising more often, and losing weight are all popular options. Given that we are a Dallas, TX podiatrist office, we are inclined to think that more people should consider making foot care resolutions for healthy feet and ankles. Remember, those valuable lower appendages allow you to perform daily tasks and your favorite activities!

When it comes to making foot care resolutions, the best part is that you can reap major benefits from simple actions. Also, they often go hand-in-hand with commitments to exercising more and losing weight. Some of the best that we can suggest include:

  • Stretch daily. Many common foot and ankle injuries happen due to soft tissues that are too tight. You can keep muscles and tendons limber by doing some simple stretches every day, especially first thing in the morning.
  • Wear the right shoes. Make a commitment this year to ensuring that you are always sporting the right footwear for the activities that you perform. If you are going to start a running program, invest in a solid pair of running shoes (and then replace them when they become worn out).
  • Make sure your footwear fits. Avoid shoes that are either excessively tight or loose. When your toes are squashed together in the front, you are more likely to develop ingrown toenails and other issues. Conversely, loose shoes that allow the foot to slide within contribute to calluses and blisters from the friction.
  • Stay active. This will likely fit perfectly with your goals for losing weight or working out, but staying physically active is essential for your foot health too. Cardio and strength training exercises both help ensure that your feet are receiving a healthy blood flow.

In addition to establishing these habits in 2016, make sure that you come see us here at Dallas Podiatry Works at the soonest opportunity when issues arise. It is easier and more effective to treat foot and ankle conditions in the early stages, so keep in mind that foot pain is not something to be ignored. Minor issues can escalate into major problems when left untreated.

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
