Make eating fresh food fun with the family.  Take advantage of your local farmer's market. Your heart will thank you for adding fresh ingredients that are high in antioxidants and nutrients to your body. Although not known to many people, certain foods can have an effect on the healthy feet. Some foods and beverages are high in purines such as shellfish, red meat, red wine, liquor and beer and they can cause very uncomfortable gout attacks.  When this occurs, uric acid builds up and crystallizes in and around your joints. Additionally, uric acid is more sensitive in colder temperatures.  
 
 
 

Winter/Fall has arrived. Are you ready? "You may be doing a lot of walking, running, dancing, standing and sitting in one position throughout the holiday season. Half of all Americans report experiencing foot pain at some point in their lives, according to a survey conducted by APMA. No one wants soreness or injuries to slow them down during the holidays, so it’s important to care for your feet so they can carry you through all those seasonal celebrations and chores".

Why should I “knock my socks off” and see a podiatrist?-www.apma.org

The feet can reveal diabetes warning signs such as numbness, redness, swelling, or non-healing wounds. Making at least two appointments a year with today’s podiatrist, the foot and ankle expert, to have your feet examined is a critical step in avoiding diabetic foot complications and amputation. http://www.apma.org/Learn/content.cfm?ItemNumber=1530

Your feet mirror your general health. Such conditions as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show their initial symptoms in the feet. Foot ailments can be your first sign of more serious medical problems.  

 Fact: Diabetes affects 26 million people in the US and more than 366 million people worldwide. To learn more, please visit: Diabetesatlas.org/American Diabetes Association. Approximately 25% will develop foot problems related to diabetes, and may be at risk for serious complications. Protective footwear (specially designed ‘Diabetic Shoes’) can help fight to prevent a large percentage of the 68,000 diabetic amputations that occur each year.

Custom Foot Orthotics : Foot problems can cause pain, inflammation, or injury resulting in limited movement and mobility. A single foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, and 19 muscles and tendons.  An average person takes 8000- 10,000 steps in a day. No wonder your feet hurt! Our custom orthotics are taken from a special mold from the foot to capture the arch of your feet. Need custom orthotics? Yes! We can help.
